A female called to report that when she was walking on the RR tracks in Niles, a male was waving a gun around, screaming. The officers and sergeants coordinated a perimeter, and located the likely subject. This suspect did not have a gun, but Officer Edwards had arrested him for gun possession before. The victim became uncooperative; no weapon was located. Officer Barrett investigated.

A witness called to report that a male in Haller's Pharmacy was holding what appeared to be a gun, and demanding medication from the clerk. When officers arrived, they put together a hasty plan and confronted the male, who was cooperative. The 22 year-old male was arrested for several felonies including robbery.
A reporting party called about a fight with his son. When officers arrived he became cooperative and walked away. A short time later he called back about the fight and this time asked officers if he could lean against their patrol cars because he had been smoking weed all day and was pretty high. In jail he remembered why he had walked away from the officers the first time. It was because of the cocaine he had concealed in his pocket. Charges added at booking.
A homeowner on the 43600 block of Excelso Drive called and reported that two males knocked on her door, then began walking around the perimeter of her house. The suspects began searching for a way to gain entry into the residence. The victim locked herself inside of a bedroom. Officers arrived and quickly set up a perimeter. While officers were on scene, the victim reported that she could hear the suspects inside of her residence. Officers made an emergency entry into the house to prevent the suspects from reaching the victim. As this was occurring the suspects fled the residence and ran into the neighborhood. A secondary perimeter was established and a search conducted utilizing a police K-9 and CHP Air Unit. The suspects were able to escape the perimeter.
A few hours later, the suspect(s) returned to their vehicle, which was still parked in the neighborhood. Officers located the vehicle and a vehicle pursuit was initiated. The pursuit was terminated as it entered Union City due to elevated danger to the public. The suspect(s) abandoned the vehicle in Union City and a perimeter was established. Once again the suspect(s) were able to evade capture. Investigating officers are working active leads.
