Fremont Police Log
Submitted By Det. William Veteran, Fremont PD
An 18 year-old victim called us at 5 p.m. to report that at around noon he cashed his paycheck and walked toward home on Eggers. Two suspects confronted him and demanded his cash. They kicked and punched him several times, leaving visible injuries, before leaving with the money. Officer Lobue investigated.
During the day, unknown suspect(s) kicked open a locked door and gained entry at 40600 block of Fremont Boulevard. Two rooms were ransacked. Some cash and jewelry were stolen. CSO Allen investigated.
The reporting party was house-sitting for his in-laws at 3000 Mission View Drive and discovered that the home had been burglarized within the past week. Officer Tarango investigated.
A clerk at C&C Liquors called to report that a male claiming to have a gun attempted to rob him. The clerk said the male was next door at the 7-11 on Delaware. Officer Edwards was passing by as the call came out, and immediately spotted the described subject at the 7-11. The male refused to follow commands and was telling the other patrons they couldn't leave. It appeared as if he wanted to run. Officer Edwards directed other officers in.
After a few moments of indecision, the suspect, a 29 year-old male, made a run for it and was introduced to K-9 Timo. After the dust settled, we learned that although the suspect was screaming he had a gun, he never actually attempted to rob the liquor store. The suspect was sent to the hospital for a dog bite and a psychological evaluation.
Officers responded to a "panic alarm" at a business on the 3900 block of Washington Boulevard. Upon arrival, officers contacted employees and confirmed that a robbery had just occurred. The suspects were armed with a handgun. Officers stopped several subjects, but ultimately the suspects successfully fled the scene undetected. Patrol, detectives and members of the Street Crimes Unit assisted with the investigation.
CSO Allen located a stolen vehicle and saw two black males associated with the vehicle walk from Taco Bell into the north doors of Safeway at the Hub Shopping Center. Several units set up and a K9 search was conducted in Safeway but the suspects were not located.
Four residential burglary reports were taken during the shift:
3600 block Turner Court
4800 block Coco Palm Drive
4900 block Creekwood Drive
4400 block Rosoli Terrace
Employees at the GameStop Store (Fremont Hub) called to report that they had just been robbed by two males. The suspects used a handgun during the crime and stole cash and several gaming systems, then fled toward the center of the shopping center. Several officers were close by and Sgt. O'Connell was able to locate the suspects as they fled from the scene in a vehicle (Wheeler/Sundale) and detain one suspect; the other suspect fled on foot. A perimeter was set and after a short period, Officer Manrique spotted the remaining suspect attempting to flee in the flood control canal on the north side of Kennedy H.S. The suspects were identified by the witnesses/victims. The loss and weapon (pellet gun) was recovered. Officer Piol and Officer Tran conducted the investigation.
Kaiser called to report they had just spoken to a patient (M45), who wanted medication. During the call the patient said he was armed (unknown weapon) and wouldn't hesitate to kill himself or someone else. He told the RP that he was walking toward Kaiser Fremont or WTH. Officers worked the call for over an hour, checking the area, doing background work to find Fremont ties, etc. Eventually Hostage Negotiator Huiskens was able to speak to him on the phone. He apologized and claimed he was in South San Francisco. We have so far been able to locate him.
Homeowner reports a subject in a hoodie is on the front porch of a residence on Gatewood Street, knocking lightly on the door. The subject took the screen off the front window and opened the window. The homeowner armed himself with a .45 and waited in the hallway with his family in the back room. Units arrived and searched the house and yards with negative results.
