A female employee at the Posh Bagel called to report that a homeless male came into the store, asking for money. When she refused, he slapped her in the face. A 47-year-old male was later arrested for battery.
FPD received a call that a robbery had just occurred at the Osgood Walmart. Initial reports indicated that a Walmart door greeter was battered by two suspects when the greeter tried to stop them from shoplifting. Officer Miller investigated and determined that actually a single suspect set off the door alarms when he walked out the door. When the greeter asked him to return to the store, the suspect bumped the greeter two times and verbally threatened him.
A mother called to report that her 12 year-old daughter was raped by an 18 year-old male. She further reported that she was on the way with the daughter to confront the suspect. By the time officers arrived, there were 10 people involved in a major shouting match. When the dust cleared, Officer Snyder determined that the mother had read the daughter's diary, and learned that the daughter had engaged in sexual activity with her 14 year-old boyfriend, but in order to protect him, lied about another uninvolved male.
Officer Gourley responded to a report of an assault with a deadly weapon at the Southlake Mobile Home Park. The suspect became upset about his ex-wife getting a new male roommate. The suspect beat the new roommate with a baseball bat. The victim was uncooperative and did not want prosecution. Units checked the area for the suspect with negative results.
A Residential burglary occurred in the 2700 block of Olive Avenue.
A residential burglary occurred in the 41000 block of Chadbourne Drive.
Officers were dispatched to Kaiser Hospital for a reported felony domestic battery. After meeting with the female victim, officers visited the male suspect at home with a two year-old child. The male, with serious visible injuries, said the female was the aggressor and he just "covered up" to protect himself. Physical evidence and statements indicated that he was truthful; the female was arrested and transported by Officer S. Hunt to Santa Rita Jail.
Recurrent family dysfunction at the 4100 block Bacinada between a 71 year-old dad and 49 year-old son who were drinking together all day before things got ugly. Predictably, they began to argue; dad pulled out a gun and punched his son in the head. Dad went out to the front porch and sat down with the gun in his hand. Family members called the police and fortunately dad was cooperative. The gun was found to be a cap gun. Son would not press charges for battery, but dad was sent to the hospital for psychological evaluation. Son was arrested for violation of a restraining order, since he is prohibited from being around dad.
A citizen called to report two males inside a Honda in the Target lot acting suspiciously and looking under the steering wheel. Officer Romley spotted the subjects walking nearby. A few minutes into the contact, both subjects ran away. K9 Timo laser- locked on the taller suspect, chasing him a few hundred yards into the Smart 'n Final lot. That suspect jumped on to the roof of a car to escape, but apparently Timo knows how to climb. Timo used the hood of the car as a launch pad, knocking the suspect to the ground. Meanwhile, the second suspect was cornered by officers on the 2nd floor of Murco Plaza. Having seen a similar move on TV, the suspect jumped over the edge, landing on the hood of a parked car. It didn't work like it does in Hollywood. Both suspects were arrested for resisting arrest, attempted auto theft and vandalism.
A male brandished a 4-way tire iron at a family in the Warm Springs Safeway parking lot then got into his older red Toyota Camry and fled out of the lot. The suspect and vehicle were not located.
Officers responded to 33197 Lake Superior in regard to a robbery of a pizza delivery driver. Upon arrival at the vacant residence, the victim was confronted by a black male adult. The suspect produced a small caliber handgun and demanded the victim's wallet and pizza. A probation search was conducted around the corner from the vacant residence on a subject matching the description. Although the probation search was successful, the victim was unable to identify any subjects associated with the probation house. Loss is a wallet and the pizza. Officer Gonzalez was the investigating officer.
