The owner of a business on the 46900 block of Warm Springs Blvd. came in around 9:30 a.m. and found the main door to be damaged. This is the second time that this business was burglarized. The first burglary was reported in May of 2013.The loss in this burglary was cash. The business has video surveillance and the owner has offered to give it to officers once heÕs able to retrieve it from the system.
Officers investigated a commercial burglary at 47800 block of Warm Springs Blvd. where a window was pried and suspects took cash from the business. Video surveillance captured the incident at approximately 4:38 a.m. The video shows that the suspects pried the base of the front door to gain entry. The suspects are described as follows:
Suspect #1 - appears to have a medium build, dark jacket or sweatshirt, with a long white t-shirt underneath.
Suspect #2 - appears to be a medium build Hispanic male, wearing a light colored shiny (possibly satin) jacket, gloves, and light colored baseball hat with a dark brim.
While documenting the burglary above, officers were advised by a neighboring business that they too were a victim of a crime. The front door to this business was again pried and a window was shattered in what appeared to be an attempt to gain entry. Officers believe that this burglary likely occurred prior to the incident listed above. There was no physical loss in this incident and officers believe it was an attempt only.
At approximately 6:15 p.m., officers were dispatched to investigate a report of a disturbance in the Niles District, specifically on Niles Blvd between E Street and F Street. Two citizens called 911 to report that there was a male who was possibly under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol and was creating a disturbance and jumping out into traffic. The first officer on scene contacted the male, later identified as a 59 year old adult male, Fremont transient, near the benches at the Niles Plaza. The male was immediately aggressive with the officer and refused to comply with commands or answer questions. A second officer arrived within about a minute and the suspect continued to disobey directions and began to scream profanities, refused to remove his hands from his pockets and began to tense up. As the two officers attempted to take the male into custody for public intoxication, a very violent struggle ensued. Both officers and the suspect sustained injuries in the struggle, which lasted several minutes before additional officers could arrive. Once the suspect was detained, two knives were located within his pockets. One officer was treated at the scene and the second was treated and released from a local hospital. For the safety of all involved, the male suspect was placed in a WRAP and transported to a local hospital for treatment. The 59 year old adult male faces multiple felony charges including: battery on a peace officer with injuries, threatening a peace officer, and resisting arrest.
