At about 2:12 pm, officers responded to the area of Peco Street and Kennedy Avenue to investigate a report of suspicious subjects possibly casing a residence to burglarize. The first arriving officer spotted the three subjects crossing Decoto Road and attempted to stop them, but they took off running. Additional officers responded to the area and set up a perimeter around the neighborhood, as the subjects began to jump fences in an attempt evade the officers. All three subjects were apprehended hiding in the back yard of residences on Silsby Street and Cherrywood Avenue. The three subjects turned out to be juveniles and were arrested for attempted burglary, trespassing, and resisting arrest.
At about 12:20 pm, an officer on routine patrol on the 3000 block of San Andreas Drive was flagged down by a homeowner. The homeowner advised the officer that his residence is currently vacant, but the front door appeared to be barricaded from the inside. The owner asked the officers to breach the door and investigate if anyone was inside illegally. The officers breached the door and found that someone had established an illegal marijuana grow inside the residence with over 100 marijuana plants. The Investigations unit is following up to determine who was renting the home.
A stabbing occurred during an argument that resulted in minor non-life threatening injuries. The suspect slashed a family member with a knife at a residence on Galano Plaza. The suspect was arrested and charged with felony assault with a weapon.
