False report
Saturday, July 3
A subject called police dispatch stating he locked his keys inside his vehicle parked near Safeway on Decoto Road and the engine was still running. The caller was informed he needed to call roadside service and not 9-1-1 as it was not a police emergency. The subject was upset and hung up.

A short while later,several officers were dispatched to an assault with a deadly weapon involving a knife. The caller said someone had been stabbed five times inside Safeway and then hung up. Officers responded and just as officers were arriving, police dispatch said it appeared the caller for the stabbing was the same as the previous caller requesting assistance to gain access to a locked vehicle.

Officers met the subject in front of Safeway who confirmed he was indeed the same person. The subject said he called and made the false report to get police to help him with his locked vehicle. The subject was then assisted when his vehicle was towed and he was arrested for making a false report of an emergency.
