A woman walked into Ingleside Station telling Officer Pubill that she was a victim of a robbery. The victim said at approximately 10:30 at night she exited a MUNI bus at Persia and Madrid Street and began walking home. The victim said she heard someone running up behind her so she held onto her purse a little tighter as it hung from her shoulder. When the unknown suspect ran past her, he grabbed her purse. The victim tried to retain possession of her purse, but was overpowered and was thrown to the ground. The suspect ran off with her purse and headed to a parked car. The victim got up and tried to go after the suspect but it was too late. The suspect had driven away from the area.  The victim was able to flag down Sgt Smith who happened to be driving by after the incident occurred. Sgt Smith broadcast the suspect and vehicle description and proceeded to search the area. He then returned but the victim had gone home and didn’t wait for police to return. The victim went to the police station to make a report. Report Number: 130162788

CRIME ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boostings around Precita Park and the surrounding area.  Don’t be a Victim.
Take extra precautions to avoid a criminal window-shopping inside your car. Never give them a reason to break into your car and steal your belongings.

                                                          Safety Tips:
*Try to park in a well- lit area and always lock your doors and secure your windows.
*Do not leave possessions on the seat or in plain view.
*Never hide belongings under the seat: This is the first place burglars check.
*Never cover expensive items with an article of clothing or blanket:  This presents a hidden clue to thieves that items may be underneath.
*Do not leave any important documents inside your car that contain your personal information.
* Do not leave phone or MP3 chargers plugged in: this leads the burglar to believe there are expensive electronics inside your car.

Remember, if a criminal is unsuccessful and is not benefitting from his criminal activity, the thief will move on, thus making your neighborhood less of a target.
