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.

When he arrived, Officer Lockett found the two victims with facial injuries, sitting on the sidewalk in front of a closed business. The victims told the officer they were waiting for a bus when three men, wearing dark shirts and baseball caps, approached and asked if they had any money. The victims told the suspects they didn’t understand English. Without provocation, the suspects started punching the victims while snatching a computer bag.  The suspects then fled the area and boarded a waiting getaway vehicle.

Suddenly, the vehicle stopped and its driver approached her and began pulling her purse from her shoulder. The victim struggled to hold on to her purse, while screaming for help. The suspect then pushed her to the ground yelling, “give me your purse..”  while stomping on her neck. The victim released her hold on the purse, the suspect ran to his vehicle and sped away. A resident of a nearby building, hearing the commotion, ran out to assist the victim and called police. The victim was treated at the scene for her injuries.

Dispatch sent Ingleside Officers Trujillo, Pan, and several additional units to a store on the 3300 block of Mission after a clerk reported she was robbed at gunpoint and assaulted. When officers  arrived, they found the store clerk and a customer outside being treated for their injuries. The clerk told the officers that she arrived shortly before the business opened and prepared everything.  When she opened the business and unlocked the front door, two suspects pushed the clerk behind the counter and ordered her to open the business safe. Another customer who was waiting in line, began struggling with the robber attempting to take the gun from his hand. During the struggle, the clerk ran outside and began screaming for help. When she turned around, she saw the robber leaving and running down the street. Emergency medical units treated both victims for minor injuries at the scene. Witnesses told the officers that the suspect got into an older sedan driven by a woman with a dog, and sped away. Officers searched the area unsuccessfully for the suspects and the vehicle.  They ordered a copy of the business’ surveillance video for the Ingleside Investigations Team.  Report number: 130489093
