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.

11:20pm               Diamond/Bosworth                    Assault
A report of a violent attack near the Glen Park BART station brought several Ingleside officers to the scene. Officer Ma was the first to arrive and he found the victim with injuries to her head, hand, and left knee. As other Ingleside officers arrived, the victim told Officer Ma that she was standing next to the BART station agent booth when a man approached her and asked for a cigarette. When she told him she didn’t have one, he yelled an epithet at her and walked away.  The victim then told the BART station agent about what happened and asked him to keep an eye out for the suspect. A few minutes later, the suspect returned and asked the victim for some money so he could pay his BART fare. The victim did not respond to the suspect and instead she began walking toward the MUNI bus stop as her bus approached. The suspect then followed her to the bus stop and proceeded to confront her. When she ignored the suspect, he started attacking her, wrestling her to the ground, punching her, kicking her, pulling her hair, and biting her hand so severely that it broke her skin. The victim told officers she was kicked three of four times in the head and face and punched 10 to 12 times. She said she did not lose consciousness during the assault. Two witnesses on the approaching MUNI bus saw the victim being attacked and one of them dialed 911. Arriving officers, after calling for medical assistance, started searching the area for the suspect. They soon found him walking a few blocks away and ordered him to stop. He, instead, began running away and was caught after a brief chase. He was brought back to the scene of the attack where the victim and both witnesses positively identified him as the suspect who assaulted the young woman. He was taken into custody and the victim was transported to the hospital for treatment of her injuries. Report number: 130620134

Serious Incidents:

5:00am                 27th/Dolores                            Robbery
Taraval Station Officers Gutierrez and McLaughlin were dispatched to a home on the 2900 Blk of 19th avenue to interview the victim of a robbery that occurred in the Ingleside District. The victim told the officers she met two people at a south of Market club the night before. She offered to give the man and woman, whom she didn’t know, a ride to their car which was parked at 27th and Dolores Streets. She arrived at that intersection, parked and helped both suspects carry items from her car to their car. When she went back to her car, the male suspect followed and, after reaching her vehicle, pushed her against her driver’s door and took out a knife and threatened to cut her. The victim quickly ran away and so did the suspects who got into their car and drove off. When the victim went back to her car she noticed that her cell phone, wallet with credit cards, gym passes, gift cards, and medical marijuana card were missing from the center console.
