Commercial burglaries reported at Gankler School and a construction site at Central Park
A male on a bicycle was splitting lanes at a red light. He moved to the front of stopped traffic, and then cut over to the bike line. Apparently this irritated a male sitting in traffic in his truck. When the light turned green, the truck caught up to the bicycle (now in the bike lane), and intentionally swerved, striking the rider. The rider flew off his bike and down an embankment. A witness copied the suspect's plate and returned to help the victim. Sergeant Fowlie spotted the suspect minutes later and he was arrested for felony hit-and-run. The victim sustained minor injuries.
A witness phoned to report a possible road-rage incident. One of the involved parties called FPD and reported that her boyfriend was following her and driving erratically. Officer Lambert happened to be nearby and waited for the drivers to pass him. When the suspect saw the officer, he began driving southbound in the northbound lanes of Mission Boulevard to get away. The suspect car pulled into a driveway, got out and ran. Officers set up a perimeter and the suspect was located hiding in a shed and arrested.
At about 1:30 a.m., a van dropped off a male with a stab wound to his left arm at the Emergency Room of Washington Hospital. The van was last seen westbound on Mowry Avenue. The victim refused to relate what happened. The victim's injuries were severe and he was airlifted to a local trauma center for surgery.
Street Crimes conducted a follow up regarding a prowling case from the prior night in which a male was seen peeping through the window of a 16-year-old female. Officer Bobbitt initiated a parole search on an adult male and a police baton was recovered from the residence. The adult male was wearing the same clothes from the night before when he was observed peeping. He was arrested for a parole violation, possession of a dangerous weapon, and peeping.
A juvenile male attending a graduation used a fake $100 bill to purchase flowers from a vendor. The vendor quickly realized that he had been scammed. He chased the suspect and eventually located him. Officer Huiskens transported the suspect to juvenile hall.
Two women were involved in a fight at Mission Valley Shopping Center. Officer Barrett was flagged down, and he stopped to investigate. In the end, he arrested a female for domestic violence.
