Fremont Police Log
By Det. Bill Veteran, Fremont PD
At 11:36 p.m. three Black male adults knocked on a residential door on Stanley Avenue and when the elderly female homeowner answered she got pushed aside. The males struck the elderly husband with the butt end of a pistol, demanding cash and jewelry. The wife was able to escape and ran to a neighbor's house where the police were summoned. The males took off with the victim's phone and an unknown (at this time) amount of loss. They fled on foot through the neighborhood, leading the police on a one hour chase and search of the surrounding area. At the end of the event, three male adults were all captured and arrested for multiple charges related to (what is now being charged as) a home invasion robbery. One of the males was captured and bitten by FPD K9 Dax. Both the husband and wife were treated at and released at a local hospital. The Detectives took over the case and are investigating if the trio is responsible for other crimes.
A citizen reported a green Chevy Suburban driving on Mowry Avenue with flat tires. The vehicle was last seen turning onto Cherry Lane. Officers eventually located the vehicle still rolling on the flat tires; Officer Hartman and Field Training Officer Franchi arrested a male for drunk driving.
A pair of transient acquaintances started fighting outside the Blockbuster (Fremont/Sundale). One produced a belt which has been modified with a wooden object so it could be used as a whip. The suspect was located a short distance away and arrested for Assault with a Deadly Weapon by Officer Allsup.
