Union City Police Log
Officers assisted the Alameda County Fire Department as they battled a fire that "fully engulfed" a residence on "F" St near 11th. Officers arrived and evacuated all residents as well as those from surrounding homes. The fire department was able to extinguish the fire quickly; the residence suffered moderate damage.
A Union City resident was struck and killed by a train near the intersection of Dyer St. just north of Alvarado Blvd. The 20 year-old male was walking northbound on the tracks wearing headphones and apparently did not hear the train coming. The Union Pacific Railroad Police responded and assisted with the investigation.
An unknown suspect used a tool to punch out the locks to multiple mailboxes within the Veranda Apartment complex located at 33 Union Square Drive.
A suspect led members of the Major Crimes Task Force on a short pursuit after failing to pull over during a traffic stop. The pursuit entered Fremont and the suspect was taken into custody. Speeds during the pursuit were low and the suspect stopped for red lights and stop signs but would not pull over for police.
