A woman was walking near Forest Park Elementary and was approached from behind by a male suspect who forcibly removed a gold necklace from around her neck. The victim received minor injuries during the scuffle. The suspect (Black Male Adult, age 35-40) fled the scene on foot. No suspect vehicles seen in this case. Seems to be the same suspect as previous cases in this area. This case was investigated by Officers Chan and Luevano.
Officers were dispatched to a shooting that just occurred on Central Ave near the 7-11. Several reporting parties on the call as officers arrived. An unoccupied vehicle was located with gun shot damage parked at the scene. Several possible Sureno gang members were contacted at the scene who refused to cooperate with the investigation.
Extended Stay Fremont / Cushing, loss was .45ACP handgun and numerous tools. Investigated by Officer Settle.
At 3:00 a.m., Dispatch received a wireless 911 call from a female requesting help but didn't know where she was. She advised she was in the back of a parked car. The caller stayed on the line the entire time and Dispatch did a great job in keeping her talking, when she wasn't passed out. Ultimately Dispatch was able to convince her to exit her car and we were able to use that address to locate her. She was intoxicated but also appeared to have some other medical issues and was transported to hospital. This call tied up the shift for approx. 1 hour. Case taken by Officer Dexter.
Street Crimes Officer Manrique and Sgt. Severance were patrolling the area of Central Avenue and saw several people standing in front of a house at Central/Teakwood. As Officer Manrique exited the car to make contact, one of the males, a parolee-at-large/gang member, took off running. During the foot pursuit he dropped a loaded .32 semi auto pistol. When he tried to jump a fence Officers deployed a Taser, striking him and taking him into custody. The adult male was ultimately booked for being a felon in possession of a firearm (with gang enhancements), resisting arrest, and his parole violation warrant.
A search of one of the females detained in front of the residence, resulted in the recovery of brass knuckles. She was arrested for possession of a dangerous weapon. Officer Farmer searched the garage portion of the residence and located home-made keys used to unlock US Postal mailboxes. An adult male was arrested for possession of the keys and a meth pipe. The US Postal Service later responded and assumed that portion of the investigation.
Victim was outside of Applebees (Mowry East) when he was approached by a Black Male Adult subject claiming to be a FPD Officer. The victim then asked to see the suspect's badge. The suspect pulled out a black handgun and robbed the victim of his cell phone, wallet, and keys. The suspect then fled S/B on Farwell Drive. Suspect was described as Black Male Adult in his 20's, last seen wearing all black clothing, and a "do-rag" on his head. Investigated by Officer Austin
