Police Blotter

Police Blotter – Richmond District


Hot Prowl Burglary:

19th Avenue and Anza Street, Dec. 18, 4:04 a.m.

Homeowners were awakened in the early morning hours by the sound of their sliding

glass kitchen door opening.


When one of the victims went into the hallway to investigate, he saw an unknown

suspect, about six-feet-three-inches tall, standing in the kitchen wearing all dark clothing

and a black ski mask.


Suddenly, the suspect grabbed the victim by both arms and threw him into a doorway.

At this time the victim’s mother opened her door to see what the commotion was about

and she was shoved backwards into her room.


The suspect ran towards the front door of the home and fled in an unknown direction.


The investigation of the case is ongoing.


Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol:

14th Avenue and Cabrillo Street, Dec. 17, 1:19 a.m.

Officers conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle suspected in a hit and run accident.

When they approached the driver, they could smell the odor of an alcoholic

beverage on his breath and observed he had bloodshot, watery eyes.


Officers performed several field sobriety tests on the suspect, who was eventually placed

under arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.


 Vehicle Burglary:

42nd Avenue and Point Lobos, Dec. 17, 1:48 p.m.

Officers rushed to the Outer Richmond upon a report of an auto boost in progress.

When officers arrived at the scene they immediately saw the suspect’s vehicle driving

away from the area, eastbound on Geary Boulevard. Officers attempted to make a traffic

stop, at which time the vehicle took off at a high rate of speed.


The officers did not give chase, but a report came in that the suspect’s vehicle had

crashed into a parked vehicle. Officers observed two suspects flee the vehicle on foot

towards 40th Avenue and gave chase. They caught and detained the suspects

without incident.


A search of the suspect’s vehicle revealed several stolen items.


Both suspects were positively identified as the suspects that had broken into parked

vehicles in the Point Lobos area. They were booked into County Jail on several

felony charges.


Robbery with Force: Battery:

25th Avenue and Anza Street, Dec. 14, 8:47 a.m.

Officers were on patrol when they observed a vehicle without rear license plates, in

violation of the California Vehicle Code. The officers initiated a traffic stop and made

contact with the driver, whom they immediately recognized from a crime bulletin

that the Richmond Investigations Team had put out earlier in the week, and a case they

had investigated.


The female suspect was wanted for a robbery committed at the Grocery Outlet on Geary

Boulevard. The suspect was positively identified through her California I.D., and it was

determined that she did not have a valid driver’s license. The suspect was booked on

several charges, including robbery.


Robbery with Force:

27th Avenue, Dec. 11, 6:27 p.m.

A man and woman were walking northbound on 27th Avenue when they were

approached by two male suspects, one of whom struck the male victim several times in

the face and head. The second victim attempted to intervene, but she got hit in the head.


The male suspects took the male victim’s necklace, phone and wallet. The two victims

had an infant with them at the time, which was unharmed. The investigation is

still ongoing.


Mental Health Detention:

25th Avenue and Clement Street, Dec. 10, 3:47 a.m.

Officers who were conducting a traffic stop observed a man, who was carrying a knife,

jogging towards their patrol vehicle. The officers told the male to drop the knife, at which

time he complied.


They quickly placed the suspect in handcuffs and asked the man why he was running

towards them with a knife.


“Five men in tuxedos are chasing me,” the subject replied.


Since no one was chasing the suspect, who appeared disoriented and confused, the

officers transported the man to a local hospital for treatment.


Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol:

33rd Avenue and Fulton Street, Dec. 9, 1:12 a.m.

Officers on patrol observed a vehicle stopped at a red light which, when the light turned

green, failed to proceed forward.


The officers exited their patrol vehicle and observed a male driver who appeared to be

unconscious behind the wheel of the car. Officers made  several attempts to wake the

driver, with negative results.


Eventually, the driver came to and the officers were able to turn the car off and get the

driver’s keys.


The driver had an unsteady gate and watery, bloodshot eyes so officers

conducted several field sobriety tests, which the driver failed.


The suspect was arrested  for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.


Outstanding Arrest Warrant, Possession of Burglary Tools, Shoplifting:

700 Block of Seventh Avenue, Dec. 5, 12:44 a.m.

While on routine patrol, an officer observed a subject running out of a grocery store

clutching a bag to his chest, with bulky items inside.


The officer attempted to stop the suspect, at which time a store employee ran out of the

store, informing the officer the suspect just stole numerous items.


The officer caught up with the suspect, who had an outstanding warrant for his arrest,

and detained him without incident.


The suspect was arrested.


Lodging Without Permission:

29th Avenue and Geary Boulevard, Dec. 3, 7:33 a.m.

Officers made contact with two subjects who were camping next to a school. The subjects

had set up a tent and had various items set up along the sidewalk.


Both subjects were cooperative and provided their names and information. They said

they were living in their tent next to the school, but due to the fact they were living in the

tent, coupled with the fact there had been several complaints in the neighborhood, both

subjects were in violation of the Civic Code (illegal lodging in a public place).


Both subjects were cited.
