Officer Luevano was dispatched to a report of a grand theft that just occurred at the AM/PM (Fremont/Thornton). As the victim went inside the store to pay for gas, a male suspect entered his vehicle and stole an iPhone. The suspect was described as an adult male, with a beard, and wearing a white jersey with the number 23 on it. The suspect fled in a newer Caravan-type vehicle.
Officers responded to a report of a strong-armed robbery in the area of Darwin/Fremont. The 76-year-old victim was walking home from church when she was approached by female who ripped a gold chain from her neck.
A residential burglary occurred on Trinidad Terrace. Entry via sliding patio door. Loss included electronics. Neighbors saw two Black adult males leaving the residence after the alarm sounded.
At 11:15 p.m., Officers were dispatched to Pickering Ave & Canyon Heights Dr in response to a vehicle rollover collision where the driver fled. Officers flooded the area and Officer Candler located an adult male hiding. He was ultimately arrested for Hit & Run/DUI. Officers Valdes, Butcher, and Dodson investigated.
At 12:41 a.m., Officers were dispatched to Walgreens on Mowry Avenue because an 11-year old autistic child ran away from the family vehicle. Officers and family members flooded the area for the search. Ten minutes later another citizen called to report a juvenile acting oddly near Mowry Avenue & Cherry Street. The juvenile was returned to family. Officer Dodson and Sergeant Griese investigated.
Residential burglary reported at 38000 block of Garrett Street. Entry via opened door.
A homeowner called FPD to advise FPD that an object had just come through the roof of her house on Witchitaw creating a basketball size "hole in the roof" and shaking the whole house. Two neighbor kids said the item had fallen from the sky and stuck the house. The object was determined to be an ice formation which probably came off a passing airplane. The object created a "man-hole cover" size area of damage to the roof tiles but did not penetrate the interior.
Officer Soper investigated a domestic violence case on Trinity Way; the suspect battered his ex-wife and then pointed a gun at her face during a child exchange. The suspect, a felon, denies anything to do with a gun and also denies a consent search of his room or car. With an approved search warrant, Officer Soper locates a 9mm Taurus in a safe in the suspect's room. The gun was stolen out of Los Angeles County.
A citizen called to report her 17-year-old son locked himself inside his bedroom and began cutting himself with a large kitchen knife in an attempt to kill himself. Officers responded and evacuated the residence. The young boy, who put up a barrier to restrict the view into his bedroom, began to communicate with the arriving officers. Sergeant Crandall and several members of the Hostage Negotiations Team responded to the scene. Officers were eventually able to convince the boy to surrender. Sergeant O'Connell and Sergeant Crandall managed the scene.
Officers responded to an in-progress bank robbery at the Chase Bank located at 39200 Paseo Padre Pkwy (Raley's). A male entered the store, jumped the counter, brandished a handgun and demanded money from the employees. The suspect fled the scene prior to police arrival. Suspect is described as a Black male adult, 5'08"-5'10", medium build, wearing a dark colored ski mask. Officer Kindorf and FTO Nevin investigated the incident assisted by FPD detectives.
Witnesses called to report that two parents were fighting in front of Blacow Elementary. Initial reports indicated that one male was stabbed. When officers arrived, they downgraded it to a brandishing. Officer Tran eventually arrested a 37-year-old male for battery and brandishing a knife.
A drunk male challenge's and pushes another in front of Little Caesar. After a short pushing match, the first male pulls a knife and then flees. Sergeant Harnett locates the male who was taken into custody by Officer Piol.
