“Police Blotter” Highlights – Ending August 27, 2017

ROBBERIES
On Monday, August 21st, around 8:50 a.m., Ofc. Olson was dispatched to the 3200 block of San Luces Way on the report of a grand theft, which was ultimately determined to be a robbery. The victim said an unknown male walked into her garage via an open door and grabbed a bag of tools. When the victim confronted him, he struggled with her before breaking free and running to his vehicle, described as a 2000s green Chevy Silverado extended cab pick-up with a camper shell. The suspect was described as a white male, 45-50 years old, tall with a muscular build, and light brown hair.

On Tuesday, August 22nd, around 12:40 p.m., Ofc. Valdehueza and Police Officer Trainee Smith were dispatched to the 30000 block of Industrial Parkway SW on the report of a robbery. The victim interrupted an in-progress auto burglary and confronted a male suspect in an attempt to retrieve his property. The suspect hopped in his car and rammed the victim’s vehicle in an attempt to get away. A female suspect then withdrew a concealed knife and attempted to stab the victim. The victim was uninjured, and the suspects fled in their vehicle, described as a white GMC SUV. The male suspect was described as a white male adult, about 6’0” with a skinny build. The female suspect was described as a white female adult with a skinny build and blonde hair in a ponytail.

On Wednesday, August 23rd, around 9:30 a.m., Ofc. Leete and Police Officer Trainee Stange were dispatched to the 20 block of Union Square on the report of a robbery attempt. The victim said he was sitting in his vehicle, when a male approached the open window and demanded money. The suspect eventually walked away but was located nearby and identified by the victim. Chana Hughes, a 21-year-old Union City resident, was arrested for robbery.

On Thursday, August 24th, around 7:50 p.m., Ofc. Sears was dispatched to the area of 11th St. and Decoto Rd. on the report of a robbery. The victim said he was hit in the back of the head and shoved to the ground, and then three suspects took his laptop bag, cell phone and wallet. All the property except for the wallet was recovered nearby. The suspects were described as black males, 18-25 years old. Two of them had short black hair, and one had short black curly hair.

On Thursday, August 24th, around 8:20 p.m., Ofc. Mangan was dispatched to the 34800 block of 11th St. on the report of a just-occurred robbery. It appears the same suspects from the previous robbery were also responsible for this one. The suspects punched the victim and stole his laptop bag, jewelry and wallet. The laptop and emptied wallet were later recovered.

PROACTIVE ENFORCEMENT
On Monday, August 21st, around 5:15 p.m., Ofc. Perry was dispatched to the area of Decoto Rd. and 10th St. on the report of a disturbance between a man and a woman.
