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.

1:04am       4600Blk  Mission                      Assault
“Those guys just beat up one of the employees! There they are go get them”. Those were the first words spoken by a group of witnesses to Ingleside Officers Zhan, Hermosura, Anderson, and Cvetovac when they responded to a silent alarm at a business on the 4600 block of Mission. The witnesses were pointing at two suspects who were walking away on Ocean Avenue. According to the witnesses, one of the business’s employees spotted the two men plugging in a cell phone charger. When he went to question the suspects, one of the men punched him two or three times in the head before both men left the premises. The 69 year old victim briefly lost consciousness from the attack. The two men were quickly apprehended and confirmed the victim’s description of what happened with the notable exception of saying they had warned the employee not to get in to his “private space” before the attack. One of the men was booked on aggravated assault and other charges. The victim was transported to St. Lukes Hospital and treated for his injuries and later released. Report number: 130590264

8:14pm       400Blk Banks                         Auto Burglary
An alert citizen, a car alarm, and an Olympic effort by Ingleside officer Burke, along with the efforts of other officers, resulted in the arrest of a car burglar. Officer Burke, along with officers Dove and Imhoff were dispatched after a citizen called 911 to report his girlfriend’s car was being burglarized. He told dispatchers that he heard a car alarm sounding and looked out the window and saw a suspect in the front seat of his girlfriend’s car. He then ran outside and the suspect got out of the victim’s car and ran away, jumping over neighborhood fences on the 400 block of Banks to escape. On the way to the victim’s home, the officers started searching the neighborhood for the suspect to no avail. When they arrived on scene, one neighbor said another neighbor had seen an adult male in his backyard. Officers Burke and Dove were allowed to enter the backyard through the neighbor’s home and noticed the suspect in another backyard. Officer Burke ordered the suspect to surrender. The suspect instead, started jumping fences with Officer Burke in pursuit. Officer Dove radioed for assistance so other officers could set up a perimeter and then positioned himself at the end of the block, on Jarboe Street, where he thought the suspect would exit the backyards. He was aided by Officer Burke’s radio calls describing the direction of the chase. A short time later, officer Dove heard scraping noises on a fence and heard Officer Burke telling the suspect to “stop running and show your hands”. Soon after, Officer Dove noticed the suspect’s leg swing over the top of the fence. Dove, grabbed the leg, with the help of other officers, and pulled the suspect to the ground where he was handcuffed and arrested. He was taken to Ingleside Station and booked for burglary, resisting arrest, and a parole violation. The car owner told the officers that the only thing stolen from her vehicle was an IPhone which, after searching several backyards, was not found. Report number: 130592618
