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. 







The San Francisco Neighborhood Emergency Response Team (NERT) is free training from the San Francisco Fire Department in how to help yourself and your neighbors prepare for and respond to a disaster by working together.  NERT will be holding several training sessions during the months of June and July.  The 20-hour training, taught by First Responders, includes personal preparedness, light search and rescue, disaster medicine, shutting off your utilities, and how to participate as a member of a neighborhood response team.  Citizens may take the NERT training outside of their neighborhoods, as it fits into their schedules.  Register on Eventbrite:  http://bit.ly/y4R3nd or call (415) 970-2024.

Serious Incidents:

8:26pm       800 Blk Peru       Trespassing
Ingleside Officers Esson and Guzman were dispatched to a call where a citizen reported someone tried to break into a home. When they arrived, the homeowner told the officers he was in a room, on the second floor of his home, when he looked out his backyard window and saw a man on the roof of his separate garage preparing to jump into his yard. The homeowner started banging on his window and yelled “What are you doing?” at the suspect. The homeowner then ran downstairs and into his garage and grabbed a baseball bat for defense. The suspect, he said, then jumped off the roof of his garage onto a car parked in the driveway and ran away. The victim said nothing was taken by the suspect but the man did damage the homeowner’s car and fence during the incident. The victim said he could possibly identify the suspect and provided a description.  Officers searched the area unsuccessfully for him.  Report number:130538355
