An officer responded to a residence located on the 4800 block of Rocklin Drive to investigate an interrupted burglary. The victim told the investigating officer that he heard a strange noise inside his residence. When he exited his bedroom to investigate, he saw two black male adults running out of his house. The victim told police that his personal computer was stolen during the break-in. Unfortunately, the victim took approximately two hours to report this incident to police which increased the chances of the suspects slipping away un-noticed.

Officers responded to the area of Bridgepoint Place to investigate an armed robbery. Two black males between the ages of 19 and 23 years old confronted the victim at gunpoint and demanded her purse. The victim complied and the suspects fled the area. One of the suspects was additionally described as having blond tips on his short 3-inch dreads.

March 26
A commercial burglary occurred at 29540 Union City Boulevard in which the suspects broke into the adjacent unoccupied business that was not alarmed. The suspects then cut a hole in the sheetrock separating the two businesses to make entry to the victim's business and stole an unknown amount of cash.

Officers responded to the strip mall located on the corner of Alvarado Boulevard and Dyer Street to investigate a person brandishing a machete.

March 27
Officers responded to a domestic disturbance at a residence on the 32000 block of Endeavor Way. Arriving officers found that the suspect had arrived at his ex-girlfriend's residence to visit his young child in violation of a court order. This caused an argument between the suspect and the ex-girlfriends parents that escalated when the suspect began to assault family members. The suspect fled the area prior to police arrival. Later, the same night, the victims were confronted once again by the suspect while shopping at Wal*Mart in the Union Landing Shopping Center.

The suspect grabbed the baby from the shopping cart and began to assault the grandfather. The family pled with the suspect to let the baby go, but to no avail. This led to the suspect and grandfather fighting in the aisles. At some point, the baby's mother was able to secure the child. During the course of the melee, the suspect struck the grandfather with a frying pan amongst other items prior to fleeing the scene. Officers were able to talk the suspect into turning himself in at the police station the following morning. The suspect was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, child endangerment, and violation of a court order.

Another domestic disturbance was reported on the 900 block of G Street. Arriving officers found a male victim bleeding from his nose. The victim advised officers that he and his new girlfriend were attending a house party when his girlfriend's ex-boyfriend suddenly showed up and began to batter him. The suspect fled prior to police arrival.
