Officer Luevano investigated a report of arson at the Stratford School (5301 Curtis St.). Several trash cans were set on fire. The cans were next to a building which could have spread if not for the quick actions of citizens. There was another fire set at the school yesterday and is also actively being investigated.
FPD Dispatch received a 911 transfer from CHP from an East Bay Regional Parks volunteer on Mission Peak Trail (Stanford side). Turns out a 65 year old male visiting from Russia (hiking the peak with his wife) collapsed of an apparent heart attack three-quarters of the way up the trail. Officers Stone and Allsup arrived and provided approximately three minutes of CPR until relieved by Fremont Fire Department personnel. Initially Life Flight helicopter landed for transport, but the male was pronounced dead at the site. Case turned over to East Bay Regional who also showed up on-scene; the case is investigated by Alameda County Sheriff's Office and Coroner's Office.
Officer Gourley investigated a strong-armed robbery that occurred at Rite Aid (3744 Mowry Ave.). The store's loss prevention officer attempted to detain a group of adults for stealing merchandise, but one of the suspects - a 30-year-old female, wearing a Raider's hoody and blue jeans - attacked him which prevented him from making the citizen's arrest. The suspects were last seen fleeing the area in a late 90's Nissan Maxima.
