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:

1:00am       Mission/Geneva             Robbery
Officers Lustenberger, Chew, Hauscarriague, and Imhoff were sent to the MUNI bus stop at Geneva and Mission to investigate a robbery. The victim told the officers he was listening to his IPod when a group of five men approached him and asked what music he was listening to. When the victim didn’t answer, two suspects pushed him to the ground and took a cell phone from his pocket and the IPod from his grasp. The suspects fled northbound on Mission. The victim said he was not injured.  He was unsure if he could recognize all of the suspects and provided the officers with a description of them.  The officers searched the area but were unable to locate the suspects.  Report number:130551131

9:45am       2900 Blk Diamond       Exhibiting Weapon
A citizen called police claiming he had been threatened by a male suspect with a gun. He told Officers Pubill and Baldovino that he had just locked his car and was walking away when he noticed a man standing next to a door on his car pulling the door handle. The vehicle owner asked the suspect, “What are you doing”? The suspect responded, “What is it to you”?  A short conversation ensued and the car owner then walked away until he heard the suspect say something again. That prompted the victim to turn around and walk back to the suspect who then took out a firearm from his waistband and pointed it at the victim’s face and said, “This is what I’ve got for you”. The suspect and victim then walked away in opposite directions.  The victim went home and called the police. The victim was not injured and believed he could recognize the suspect.  Officers canvassed the area unsuccessfully in search of the male suspect.  Report number:130551705

3:20pm       Sunnydale/Hahn          Aggravated Assault
Ingleside officers Bernard, Gallo, Goldsborough and Kilgariff were dispatched after a citizen claimed he was assaulted while riding a MUNI bus. The victim told the officers he was sitting on the bus when two females started taunting him and taking his picture. He told them to stop taking his picture and attempted to ignore them. As the bus stopped at the corner of Sunnyvale and Hahn, one of the suspects grabbed an overhead bar and, using it as leverage, kicked the victim in the right side of his head. The kick pushed the victim’s head into a bus window, breaking the glass. Both suspects then ran off the bus and escaped in an unknown direction. The victim was treated at the scene for his injuries. Officers searched the area but were unable to locate the female suspects.  They contacted Muni dispatch and requested a copy of the surveillance video.   Report number:130552543
