Officers Park and Chang were dispatched to assist the victim of a robbery.  They located the victim who was bleeding from the head and immediately summoned an ambulance.  Several other Ingleside officers proceeded to search the area to no avail for the suspect.  The victim told the officers that he was pumping gas at the gas station when a male suspect approached him, pointed a gun at him and told him to give him his wallet.  The victim was in fear for his safety and had difficulty getting his wallet out of his pockets.  The suspect then hit the victim on top of his head with the gun, grabbed the wallet and fled the scene.  The officers took pictures of the victim’s injuries for evidence and ordered a copy of the video surveillance tape from the owner of the gas station.  The victim was transported to the hospital for further medical treatment.  Report Number: 130162114

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.
