Robbery with a Knife: Fulton Street and 19th Avenue, Oct. 24, 5:30 p.m. 

The victim was reading in Golden Gate Park when he was approached by the suspect. The suspect tried to engage in conversation with the victim, at which point the victim began to gather his things to leave. 

As the victim tried to leave, the suspect became agitated and irate. She produced a large knife, waved it at the victim, and said: “I’m going to kill you!” 

The victim attempted to flee and dropped his backpack, which the suspect took and then began to stab. Officers arrived, located the suspect, and placed her under arrest. 

The suspect was booked at County Jail.

Shoplifting: 700 Block of Clement Street, Oct. 26, 4:03 p.m. 

Officers responded to a call of multiple suspects shoplifting in a drug store. Officers canvassed the area and located the suspects attempting to get into a getaway car, with the getaway driver waiting in the driver seat. 

All suspects were detained. The three suspects that fled the store were in possession of stolen merchandise. Each of the suspects was positively identified with corroboration from surveillance footage. All merchandise was returned to the store. 

Suspect one had a local warrant for her arrest for burglary and possession of stolen property. The driver of the getaway vehicle, suspect four, had a suspended license. 

Suspect one was arrested and booked at County Jail. Suspects two and three were issued citations for misdemeanor shoplifting ($200-950) and released from the scene. Suspect 4 was issued a citation for operating a vehicle with a suspended license and released at the scene.

Burglary: Second Avenue and Cabrillo Street, Oct. 30, 8:08 p.m. 

The victim heard a commotion coming from downstairs. The victim then looked out his window and heard a neighbor yell, “He’s in the lobby!” 

Officers arrived and located the suspect just outside the building lobby in possession of two stolen packages from within the building. As the suspect was being searched, he yelled: “If you take off these cuffs, one on one, I’ll beat your a–!” 

The suspect was arrested and booked at County Jail.

Attempted Residential Burglary: 2200 Block of Baker Street, Nov. 2, 10:00 p.m. 

The victim noticed damage to his garage door and reviewed surveillance video showing two suspects attempting to break into his garage early in the morning hours. The victim had the garage door repaired during the day. Late in the evening that same day, the victim saw one of the suspects attempting to break into the garage again. 

Officers arrived and located suspect one. Suspect one was identified by the victim and surveillance footage. A records check revealed suspect one was on release from jail on his own recognizance for a pending burglary case. 

A search of suspect one revealed a car antenna bent into a hook shape, commonly used to pull the garage door manual release cord through a broken garage door window. 

Suspect one was arrested and booked at County Jail. Suspect two is still outstanding.

Attempted Catalytic Converter Theft: Funston Avenue and Geary Boulevard, Nov. 7, 2 a.m. 

Officers observed a vehicle double parked next to a car up on a jack, a method that criminals often use to steal catalytic converters. The officers detained three suspects for further investigation. 

A records check of the double parked vehicle revealed it was registered to suspect one. However, the plates displayed did not match the vehicle identification number (VIN), a common deceptive tactic. 

The records check also revealed suspect two had a felony no-bail warrant out of San Joaquin County for post community release supervision (PCRS) violation. Suspect three was in possession of burglary tools commonly used to steal catalytic converters. 

All suspects were arrested and booked at County Jail.
