Union City Police Report
On May 5, a patrol sergeant near "Our Lady of the Rosary" church heard gunshots. Officers responding spoke with a gang member in front of his residence on Whipple Road who claimed that a "stranger" began shooting at him. Several bullet holes were found in a nearby vehicle and one gunshot penetrated the residence. No one was injured during the incident.
Officers were dispatched to a just-occurred home invasion robbery on Panama Circle early May 6. The victim stated she was in her bedroom when she heard someone ransacking the bedroom next to hers. The victim came out to see who was in the house when she was assaulted by three males with red bandanas covering their faces. She was pistol-whipped while being asked about an individual and money. The victim was transported to a local hospital for possible injury to her skull. The suspects fled prior to the arrival of officers. Another victim (home owner) gave a conflicting description of the suspects. The investigation is ongoing.
