11:38am     1800 Blk. Alemany                 Bicycle Theft
A pair of thieves could not resist the temptation of an unlocked bicycle in the bed of a pickup truck. The pair took the bicycle and were walking away when a witness yelled at them to stop. They ignored the plea. The witness called police and Ingleside Officers Grabbe and Clayton were able to detain the pair a few blocks away. The witness positively identified the suspects as the thieves. A computer check revealed that one of the suspects was on felony probation for burglary. The theft was a violation of his probation and he was taken to the county jail for booking. His companion was cited for petty theft and released. Report number: 180049302

7:55pm       3300 Block Mission                D.U.I
Ingleside Officers Hardy and Lau were dispatched to a report of a collision involving a vehicle and a fire hydrant. When the officers arrived they found the suspect driving slowly through the Safeway parking lot near where a fire hydrant was partially toppled over. They activated their red lights and siren in the unsuccessful first attempt to stop the driver. The officers got out of their patrol car and ordered the driver to stop his car and exit the vehicle. The suspect stumbled out of the vehicle and could barely walk. The officers summoned medical assistance and an ambulance arrived to take the suspect to San Francisco General Hospital. He was too drunk for a field sobriety test. At the hospital the suspect told the officers that he had drank wine and beer before the collision. He also had a suspended license. A judge authorized a blood draw for alcohol intoxication which was performed at the hospital. After treatment at SFGH, he was taken to the County Jail and booked for DUI and other crimes. Report number: 180050729

He told Ingleside Officers Suguitan and Park that he noticed a man carrying two handbaskets full of groceries toward his car parked on Alemany near Safeway. The witness took out his cellphone and snapped several pictures of the suspect and his car. The suspect, seeing the witness taking pictures, quickly ran up and demanded the cellphone. When the witness wouldn’t surrender his property, the suspect attacked the witness kicking and punching him several times. Fortunately, another witness, seeing the fight jumped in to separate the two combatants. The suspect ran back to his car and sped away.
