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.

12:15pm     2200 Blk  Bayshore                Robbery
Two alert witnesses and a calm store clerk helped Ingleside officers arrest a robber. Ingleside Officers Bernard and Cross responded to a robbery at a convenience store. When they arrived, a store clerk told the officers a woman, wearing a red mask and a hood, entered the store and, pointing to what she said was a gun in her pocket and ordered the clerk to empty both cash registers. The clerk’s complied and the robber quickly left where one witness, who noticed the robbery in progress, watched as she walked away and then a short time later, noticed the suspect in the back seat of taxi driving away. Another witness standing in front of the store, also noticed the suspect walk around the block, get into the back seat of a cab, and watched the cab drive away. He noted the cab’s number on the door and passed that information to arriving officers. The cab’s number along with the robber’s description was broadcast and a short time later Ingleside Officers Clifford and Trujillo noticed the cab traveling Northbound on Mission Street near Virginia. The officers stopped the vehicle, and with the help of other Ingleside units, arrested the suspect who was booked for robbery and other related charges. The cab driver told officers that the robber took the cab from her home in the Mission to the convenience store and asked him to wait around the corner. A short time later, she got back in to the cab and asked him to drive her to a nearby smoke shop. Before arriving at the smoke shop he was stopped and she was arrested. Report number: 130594084

Ingleside Officers Morse and Pan were dispatched to a grocery store after a clerk reported being punched in the face by a robber. The clerk told the officers while he was working he noticed a man enter who he knew had stolen debit cards and other items before. He watched as the suspect walk over to a display and take nine prepaid debit cards before placing them in his pocket. When the man walked out of the store without paying, the clerk approached him and asked for the cards back. According to the clerk, the suspect said, “why are you working so hard”, and punched him in the jaw. The victim, who was not seriously injured, called police while watching the man walk toward a black Honda in the store’s parking lot. The suspect was unable to get into the Honda, so he ran out the back of the parking lot across Alemany Boulevard, and disappeared. A store security officer trailed the suspect and watched him drop the stolen cards on Alemany Boulevard while running away. The officers reviewed store security footage which showed the suspect arriving at the store with another man in the black Honda. Case number: 130595139
