ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boosts in the area of O’Shaughnessy and Bosworth.  The break ins are occurring around the hours of 9:00am to 12:00pm.  Please report any suspicious activity to the police.  Do not leave valuables in your cars.

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.

1:06am       100 Blk Appleton         Battery
Officers Hermosura and Contreras were dispatched after a man called police to say a female acquaintance had battered him. When the officers arrived, a woman was running toward them claiming that her uncle had just hit her. The officers could smell alcohol on her breath and noticed she had bloodshot eyes. The officers interviewed the man in the home who claimed the woman was a guest.  He said that she suddenly became irate and struck him. He didn’t want to press charges, but wanted her escorted out of his home. He said he was just a friend and not related to the woman. He was not injured and wanted no medical treatment.

The officers told the woman that she would not be able to return to the home and asked if she had another place to stay. She said she didn’t know for sure and asked to be released. The officers said she was unable to care for herself due to her level of intoxication. She was taken to the county jail and booked.  Report number:130539046

4:15pm       2900Blk Diamond       Battery on a Police Officer
Ingleside patrol Officers Kilgariff and Hornstein traveled to Glen Park BART station regarding an aggressive panhandler.  They located the suspect walking down the street near the station. The officers asked the man to stop and talk to them. The suspect kept walking away. When the officers approached the man again, he started swearing at them. The officers then gave a third command for him to stop, and he still ignored them. When Officer Kilgariff grabbed the suspect’s arm to prevent him from escaping, the man swung his fist around and hit him on the bicep. He then started struggling with both officers as they attempted to place him in handcuffs. Quickly, with the help of other Ingleside officers, the suspect was placed in handcuffs and on the sidewalk. The suspect smelled of alcohol and had red, watery eyes. Medical care was requested, and the suspect was treated for minor scrapes to his hands. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital and held until he was sober. He was cited for battery and resisting arrest. Report number:130540980

11:04pm     600 Blk Foerster       Trespassing
Officer Cvetovac, along with other Ingleside units, responded to a report of a “hot prowl” on the 600 block of Foerster. When they arrived, they were met by two sisters, one of whom said she was awakened by her dogs barking. When she went to the living room to investigate, she found a strange man asleep on a couch. Just then, her sister returned home and together both of them told the man to leave their home. The strange man stumbled and couldn’t get up and the women helped him to his feet and took him downstairs. They then called the police.  Ingleside officers searched the area and found the man on a nearby street, struggling to walk. They placed him under arrest and took him to Ingleside Station where he was booked for trespassing. The officers returned to the home and discovered the strange man entered the sister’s home through an unlocked door.  They took pictures of the scene for evidence.  Report number:130542146

11:24pm     200 Blk Rey St          Assault/Battery
Two Ingleside Officers, Anderson and Zahn, were sent to the 200 block of Rey after a private security guard called police saying he heard a woman being assaulted. When they arrived at the address, the woman told the officers she and another tenant got into an argument. When she went outside to her car to cool off, she said the suspect came out of the home and punched her several times in the face through the car window. The officers called for an ambulance after noticing serious injuries to the woman’s right eye and mouth. She was transported to the hospital for treatment.  The suspect was taken to Ingleside Station and booked on aggravated assault and battery.  Officers took pictures of both the victim and the suspect, which they booked into evidence.  Report number:130542196
