JUST A REMINDER:  Schools are out for summer session.  Please pay extra attention when driving around parks and playgrounds as children will be out all hours of the day.

Recently, a flyer was distributed to the community regarding scams targeting the monolingual Chinese.  These scams involve telling the victim that an evil spirit is following them.  They will ask the victim to bring valuables to pray over as an offering to the spirit. They will return to the victim what is believed to be their valuables. They will ask the victim not to look at their valuables for a day.  When the victim later checks their valuables, they find that the valuables were not returned by the suspects.

We urge all person(s) confronted with this scam to call 911 as this is a crime in progress.  By contacting 911, you greatly increase the chance of catching the suspect(s) so that the police can make an arrest.  If someone approaches you with this scam, decline their help, call 911 immediately and report it to the police.  Be a good witness.  Obtain a description of the suspect(s) and/or vehicles they are driving. 







The San Francisco Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) is free training from the San Francisco Fire Department in how to help yourself and your neighbors prepare for and respond to a disaster by working together.  NERT will be holding several training sessions during the months of June and July.  The 20-hour training, taught by First Responders, includes personal preparedness, light search and rescue, disaster medicine, shutting off your utilities, and how to participate as a member of a neighborhood response team.  Citizens may take the NERT training outside of their neighborhoods, as it fits into their schedules.  Register on Eventbrite:  http://bit.ly/y4R3nd or call (415) 970-2024.

Serious Incidents:

8:57a.m.     San Bruno/Arleta                   Battery
Ingleside officers Pan and Trujillo were dispatched to the corner of San Bruno and Arleta to investigate a battery on a Muni bus. When they arrived, they were met by a young woman who told the officers she was sitting near the middle of a Muni bus when an unknown male threw a water bottle at her. The victim said the suspect then got up from his seat to exit the bus, and, while walking past her, punched her in the left side of her face. She said the suspect then exited the bus and fled in an unknown direction. The officers spoke to the driver of the bus who told them that he saw the young suspect punch the victim in the face and he hit his emergency notification button. The victim was transported by ambulance to the Chinese hospital for treatment of injuries to her face and ear and then released. She was unsure if she could recognize the suspect if she saw him again.  The officers contacted Muni dispatch and requested a copy of their surveillance video.  Case number: 130486237
