At 10:02 p.m., two victims were approached by a male suspect as they walked to the Bank of America on Alvarado Blvd. The suspect was holding a baseball bat when he approached the two victims and demanded money. One of the victims fled on foot and the other victim showed the suspect she did not have anything of value on her person. The victim said the suspect appeared disappointed as he fled the area in what was described as a late model Toyota Camry, 4-door, and silver in color. The victims described the suspect as being a black male; 34 to 36 years of age, with a shaved head, approximately 6 feet tall, weighing about 200 pounds. The victims were not injured by the suspect during the incident. Anyone with additional information about the suspect or incident is encouraged to call the Union City Police Department.
Officers were called to assist with a disturbance outside the Extended Stay Hotel at 6:11 p.m. A large crowd of family members dispersed and walked away as officers arrived. At about 7:44 p.m., officers were called back to investigate another disturbance near the AT&T store at Union Landing. Officers arrived and contacted the same group of family members causing a disturbance. A male in the group became aggressive when the officers asked for his identification. Apparently, the male remembered that he had two warrants for his arrest and did not want the officers to have his identification. The male pulled away from officers and attempted to kick officers while he was being arrested. The male also threatened to kill the arresting officers and the officer's family members during the contact.
Sgt. Sato and Cpl. Kanazeh witnessed a vehicle traveling in excess of 40 MPH in a 25 MPH residential zone at 8:17 p.m. The vehicle ran a stop sign and continued speeding as the officers made a U-turn. The vehicle pulled into a residential driveway on 4th Street, as the officers conducted the traffic stop. The driver of the vehicle was arrested for driving while under the influence (DUI). The arrestee's father exited the residence and began pushing officers when he saw his son being arrested for DUI. Father and son spent the night together in jail.
At 2 p.m., a seventeen-year-old victim was sitting on a bench at the Civic Center Park. An elderly male approached the victim and offered to perform oral sex. The juvenile described the suspect as a white male, 70 to 80 years old, with gray hair, and a European accent. The suspect was riding on a mechanical wheelchair at the time of the incident. Det. Luevano was assigned the case the following day and was able to identify the suspect. Criminal charges are now being forwarded to the District Attorney's Office.
At 7:06 p.m., a 68 year-old victim was collecting recyclables in the area of Peacock Place, when he was approached by a 52 year-old resident. The resident began yelling at the victim over the removal of recyclables. The victim was frightened by the resident and the victim attempted to run away. Instead of calling the police, the resident decided to chase after the 68 year-old. The resident chased down the 68 year-old victim and kicked him in the chest. The victim fell down and lacerated both of his hands. Witnesses in the area called the police after seeing a large amount of blood coming from the victim. Arriving officers located and arrested the suspect.
At 12:43 p.m., officers were dispatched to investigate a just occurred automobile burglary at the Chevy's restaurant. The victim placed a computer bag on the passenger seat of his vehicle and went into the restaurant to use the restroom. The victim returned to his vehicle after about five minutes and confronted a suspect that had just shattered the passenger side window on his vehicle. The suspect pointed a black handgun at the victim as the victim returned to his vehicle. The suspect then got into a vehicle and drove out of the parking lot. The victim described the suspect's vehicle as new sport utility vehicle, dark blue in color, with dark tinted windows and paper dealer plates. The victim described the suspect as a Hispanic male adult, between 25 and 35 years old. Responding officers were unable to locate the suspect. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Union City Police Department.
