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

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.

Serious Incidents:

1:35pm       Laidley/30th                             Robbery
Officers Rueca and Gallo went to meet with a victim of a robbery that had occurred minutes earlier. The young victim said he was walking in the area of Laidley and 30th Street when he was approached by two unknown suspects. The suspects demanded the victim’s property and began searching through his pockets. The victim quickly stepped back but one of the suspects pulled out a gun from his waist band and pointed it at him. The second suspect continued to search the pockets taking the victim’s Iphone. Both suspects then fled the scene running Eastbound on 30th Street. The victim gave chase and tackled the suspect that took his phone. A struggle ensued where the victim was overpowered and was punched several times. The suspect got to his feet and continued to make his get-a-way, but leaving behind his baseball hat. The victim sustained a cut to his mouth and a bump to his head as a result of the robbery. Medics were requested, but the victim refused to be transported. The hat was collected as evidence.
