Crime Alert Bulletin January 7-13, 2019

When I mention “the unit block” of a street, this means the incident occurred at an address anywhere between 1 and 99 of the street.


Notable Cases

On Monday, 01-07-19 at 3:38 p.m., Officer Cabatic was dispatched to a residence on the 1000 block of Hanover Street on a report of a subject attempting to break into the reporting party’s residence. The reporting party said her grandson was supposed to be in a rehab center but was banging on the door. Officer Cabatic observed the 38-year old subject was intoxicated and was unable to stand by himself without assistance. Officer Cabatic placed the subject under arrest for being intoxicated in public and violated his parole.

On Wednesday, 01-09-19 at 3:32 p.m., Officer Lajoie was dispatched to the 500 block of Schwerin Street on a report of a male who was exposing his genitals while standing on the sidewalk. The reporting party saw the subject expose himself in front of two females as he passed by them. The subject, a 39-year old San Francisco resident, was subsequently arrested for indecent exposure with a prior felony and for being in possession of a controlled substance.

On Wednesday, 01-10-19 at 11:09 p.m., Officer Martin and Officer Dhaliwal were dispatched to an apartment building on the 2600 block of Geneva Avenue on a report of a subject causing a disturbance in the lobby. The officers located the subject, a 48-year old Daly City resident, and arrested him for public intoxication.

On Wednesday, 01-09-19 at 11:42 p.m., officers were dispatched to the Annex Bar on Mission Street on a report of a strong-arm robbery. The bartender said a subject was smoking outside the bar with other people and came through the front door. The bartender told the subject she did not want him inside the bar because he was drunk. The bartender said the subject then entered the bar, went behind the counter and took money from an open register. The bartender said the subject put his wallet down on the bar. As the bartender tried to get the money back from the subject, she said the subject pushed her. Other patrons were able to hold down the subject. Officers ultimately arrested the subject, a 33-year old transient, for robbery, possession of stolen/lost property (other people’s identification/credit cards were in the subject’s wallet), possession of unlawful paraphernalia (pipes) and for an outstanding warrant.

On Thursday, 01-10-19 at 3:33 a.m., a 24-year old South San Francisco resident was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol after he was involved in a single-vehicle collision with a lamp post on Junipero Serra Boulevard south of D Street.

Dispatchers advised that the subject was able to get into the car and locked himself inside it. Officer Haas observed the subject was acting as if he was under the influence of a drug and conducted field sobriety tests to determine whether he was under the influence. The subject, a 34-year old Grass Valley resident, failed the tests and was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and for being under the influence of a controlled substance.

On Sunday, 01-13-19 at 11:21 p.m., Officer Edwards and Officer Cain were dispatched to the Nation’s Hamburgers restaurant on a report of a subject who was yelling inside the restaurant. The subject, a 39-year old Daly City resident, was under the influence of a controlled substance and was transported to Seton Hospital due to having abnormal vital signs. Officer Covarrubias arrived to translate, and the subject was subsequently issued a citation for being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Nextdoor.com

Nextdoor.com is a free private social networking website for your neighborhood. This private network ensures that only those who live in your neighborhood can join; users must go through a verification process. Neighbors ask each other for business recommendations; help in locating missing pets; discuss relevant local government issues; or connect for other reasons. It is very easy to sign up. I like the fact that the site verifies users by addresses, and it won’t allow people to access to a neighborhood if they don’t live there. Please note: The City of Daly City and/or the Police Department cannot see what residents post—we are only allowed to post information. There is also a mobile application, or you can have it sent to your e-mail. Give it a try! www.nextdoor.com
