The next community meeting at Ingleside Station will be held on October 15, 2013. Thank you.
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.

Fraud Warning: Two days ago a San Francisco resident received a telephone call from an unknown subject, who was identifying himself as Captain Moser from the San Francisco Mission Police Station. The subject informed the resident that he was calling to collect an unpaid balance on outstanding parking tickets and that it would take $500.00 dollars to rectify the situation. The subject said the process could be taken care of over the phone with a credit card number. The resident, being suspicious, looked up Captain Moser on Google and saw that he was in fact stationed at Mission Police Station. At this point, the resident was no longer concerned and proceeded to provide the subject with their credit card number. The money was then taken from the resident’s account. Be alert of this new scam taking place. The San Francisco Police Department will never call anyone to collect a debt. If this happens to you, do not provide any of your personal information and hang up immediately.
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.

7:25pm 3300 Blk Mission Assault
A woman trying to rent a DVD at a grocery store was the victim of a severe assault. The victim told Ingleside Officers Thompson and Truong that when she approached the “Red Box” DVD kiosk there was a man standing in front of it perusing the selection. She waited for some time and finally notified a store checker that the suspect had been inspecting the selection for some time. She then went back to the kiosk and waited for several more minutes before finally asking the man if it would be okay for her to move ahead of him and make a selection. At which point, she said the man turned around and told her to “shut up”, called her a stupid b….”, and said he would kick her a..”. The suspect then punched the victim in the face three times before several store employees and bystanders tackled him and pulled him off the victim. The victim told officers that she lost consciousness during the assault. Medics were summoned and she was treated at the scene for a bruised lip. The officers reviewed store surveillance video which clearly confirmed the victim’s description of the incident. The suspect was transported to Ingleside station where officers searched and found two identifications belonging to other people. He was booked on charges of assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury and battery with serious bodily injury. The suspect also had ten outstanding warrants for arrest. Case number: 130802592

Eagled eyed Ingleside Officer Ma was driving down Mission Street when he noticed a man writing something on a trash can. When the tagger noticed patrol Officer Ma, he quickly moved away from the can and started walking toward Precita Street. Officer Ma stopped his patrol car and approached the tagger asking him if he knew why he was talking to him. The suspect answered, “Because, I was tagging the trash can”. The officer responded yes, because you were vandalizing the trash can. The suspect had Massachusetts identification and said he was homeless and had just moved back to San Francisco. He was cited and released. Case number: 130803120
