The next community meeting at Ingleside Station will be held on August 20, 2013.  Thank you.

BE AWARE:  Last week, in the Park Police District, “laced meatballs” were located which a dog had ingested.  Also, in the Ingleside District, another concerned citizen reported that “tainted” food had been left on the street for dogs to ingest.  Please be cautious and report any suspicious food left out to the police.  Don’t allow your pets to ingest such items.

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. 

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.

Serious Incidents:

2:16am       4400 Blk Mission                   Aggravated Assault
Ingleside Officers Carrasco and Dominguez were dispatched after a man called police to say he was robbed and stabbed. When they arrived at the address given by the victim they found no sign of the man or a crime. Officers Carrasco, Dominguez searched the area for the victim without success. Dispatched called the victim but the calls were only answered by voicemail.  Finally the victim called police again and said he was at a home on the unit block of Lisbon. When officers arrived at that address they found the front door open and two bloody shirts on the stairs. They searched the house and found the victim bleeding from a stab wound in the garage. He told the officers, before being taken away by ambulance, that earlier that evening, he went to a restaurant in the 4400 block of Mission to watch a soccer match. After the game ended he left the restaurant and was walking outside when an unknown man approached and pushed him. Because he was inebriated, the victim didn’t realized that he was stabbed until he started walking away. That’s when he first called police while on his way to his home on Lisbon. He was unable to give police a good description of his attacker.  Report number: 130574826

Ingleside officer Chew was dispatched and found the victim standing on the sidewalk in front of a store on the 4400 block of Mission. He told officer Chew that, earlier, he was standing at that same address when he noticed a man inside his parked car. The victim walked to his car and noticed the suspect crouching down behind the driver’s seat. When he opened the car door, the suspect sprang up and punched the victim in the face before exiting the vehicle and taking two of the victim’s messenger bags from the car. The suspect, with the victim in pursuit, ran north on Mission towards Trumbull, then down the stairway toward Alemany, south on Alemany to Admiral and then east on Admiral where the suspect dropped the two stolen bags before escaping the pursuit.
