Officers conducted a traffic stop at 2:13 a.m. in the 35000 block of Lake Blvd. and arrested Nicholas McIntyre, age 24 (Newark) for DUI.
At 2:18 a.m., officers responded to the area of Willow Drive and Cabot Court regarding a naked male, who was seen sitting on a fire hydrant, exposing and fondling himself. Officers located Donald Thomas, age 47 (Transient) as the responsible subject and booked him Santa Rita Jail for indecent exposure.
At 5:46 p.m., an officer responded to the area of Dalewood Drive to look for a male subject that was exposing himself. Based on the clothing description, it is believed the suspect is the same subject that was booked for the same activity in the early morning hours. As officers searched the area for the suspect, Officers saw that an AC bus was picking up passengers near the incident location (Fire Station on Newark Boulevard). As Officers entered the bus, a male adult, unrelated to this call, jumped out of the emergency window and ran. Officers attempted to search for both the indecent exposure suspect and this fleeing subject but met with negative results. Officers learned the suspect that fled the bus discarded several Oakley sunglasses (with price tags still attached) prior to fleeing. A passenger sitting next to the suspect, male juvenile (Brentwood), age 16, was arrested for possession of stolen property.
Officers contacted Raul Rodriguez, age 35 (Transient) at 8:30 p.m. Rodriguez was walking a dog that Officers learned did not belong to him. The dog's owner was contacted and had Rodriguez placed under arrest for possessing their stolen dog. Rodriguez was booked into the Fremont Jail for possession of stolen property.
An officer initiated a traffic stop at 10:11 p.m. on a vehicle for a traffic violation on Newark Boulevard near Civic Terrace Avenue. The driver, Hector Franco-Gallardo, age 21 (Newark resident) attempted to assault the Officer. Officers subsequently arrested Franco-Gallardo after a short struggle. Franco-Gallardo was booked at Fremont Jail for assault committed against the person of a peace officer and being an unlicensed driver.
Officers handled a shop lift call at Macy's at 6:39 p.m. Michelle Harris, age 36 (Los Angeles) and Daniel Post, age 35 (Culver City) were arrested for burglary. Harris was booked at Fremont Jail and Post was booked at Santa Rita Jail.
At 7:24 p.m., The California Highway Patrol requested NPD assistance for an officer who was in foot pursuit of a suspect to the rear of the auto dealerships on Balentine Drive. A perimeter was set up around the dealerships and surrounding area. A police K9 was used to conducted a search of the area to the rear of the dealerships with negative results. The vehicle the suspect fled from was an unreported stolen vehicle.
