Back to School: As summer draws to a close, back-to-school season will be in full effect. Safety should be a priority for every family as children return to classrooms this fall. It’s crucial that all motorists understand how to safely share the roads with school buses, pedestrians and bicyclists. It’s also a good time for parents and children to talk about how to stay safe at school.

ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boosts in the area of Monterey, 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.

Crime Alert: Precita Park / Bernal Heights Area;  During the extended labor day holiday there were a total of 32 vehicles stolen in the Ingleside district as of 08/30/2013. Eight of those stolen vehicles were taken from the Precita Park and Bernal Heights area. Be sure to secure your vehicle (windows up, doors locked) before you leave your car parked on the street. Consider looking into getting an alarm or anti theft device such as a steering wheel club. This, for the most part, should deter most culprits from stealing your car. If you want to make it that much more difficult, consider installing a kill switch. Older model Hondas and Toyotas are among the most popular and easiest vehicles to steal.

District Wide Burglaries in the Ingleside: In The Last month of August there have been 7 reported burglaries throughout the district. 4 of those burglaries alone have taken place in the Bernal Heights area. The different methods of entries have been through unlocked windows, sliding glass doors, unlocked side doors, unlocked garages and in one case through a doggie door where the perpetrator squeezed themselves through the small opening. Also, homes under construction have been targeted and expensive tools and appliances have been taken. As the warmer weather of fall approaches, make sure to secure your residence and that all your windows and doors are locked before leaving. If you happen to see any suspicious activity around your neighborhood that looks odd or out of place, call the police immediately. 

Crime Alert:  An increase of robberies and thefts has been occurring in and around the Balboa BART Station and City College area. There have been five robberies in the last couple weeks alone in this area. Be vigilant of your surroundings and follow the safety tips below.

1:25pm       Peralta/Holladay                    D.U.I
Officers Johnson and Holland were on their way to take a missing persons report when they were suddenly flagged down by witnesses, who said there was a person inside a White truck driving recklessly in the area. The witnesses told the officers that the vehicle just hit a parked vehicle and had fled the scene. The officers searched the area and found the White truck, not far away, left abandoned with the engine still on and the driver door open. The officers inspected the vehicle and found fresh damage to the left front end. Moments later, CHP Officer Martin and Sgt Clare arrived on scene with the suspect (driver) in custody. They told the officers that they were driving along highway 101 when they saw the suspect dart across the freeway. The CHP officers said they gave chase and were able to get the suspect into custody. They then contacted San Francisco dispatch who advised them that a hit and run accident had just taken place and that the suspect in their custody matched the description of the hit and run driver. A computer check showed that the suspect had stolen the truck from a family member out of Tracy, California. Officer Holland spoke to the suspect who admitted he was under the influence of “Crack and Meth” and that he drank a few glasses of brandy earlier in the day. The suspect was also complaining of pain to his chest, which was probably from the impact of the accident. The suspect was taken to the local hospital where he was treated then booked on various charges including driving under the influence, hit and run, Possession of a stolen vehicle as well as driving on a suspended license and outstanding warrant.

Serious Incidents:

5:42pm       2200 Blk Bayshore                 Robbery
Officers Austin and Morse, who were on duty, responded to a call regarding a robbery with a gun. Additional units from Ingleside responded to the scene as well. This case involves a victim who just attended the 49ers/Packer game and was wearing his favorite Green Bay Packers attire. After the game, the victim left the stadium and headed towards the MUNI bus stop near the 2200 block of Bayshore Boulevard. The victim was approached by an unknown male who was dressed in all Red 49er gear. The suspect approached the victim and, in a demanding tone, ordered the victim to take off his Packers gear. The victim walked away assuming the unknown male was intoxicated and completely ignored him. The suspect suddenly pulled out a black semi automatic gun and demanded the victim hand over his Packer clothing. The victim not wanting to get shot immediately handed over his clothes.  A second victim, who was standing near the doorway of 7-11 a short distance away, and who was also a Packers Fan, was approached by the same unknown suspect. The suspect started to argue with the second victim about the 49ers game. The unknown male demanded he too take off his Packers clothing as well.  The victim ignored him, when then the suspect suddenly took a swing at him. The victim blocked the punch when the suspect pulled out his gun for a second time. Fearing for his life, the victim took off his packers hat and jersey. The Unknown suspect then fled the scene with a female accomplice, who were last seen headed westbound on Arleta Avenue. One victim stated he would be able to identify the suspects if seen again. Additional units searched the area, but had no results. The officers obtained the 7/11 surveillance footage to help aide in the investigation. Report number: 130753092
