At 5:56 p.m., officers responded to an address on Anaheim Loop, to conduct a probation search. Officers located a set of metal knuckles, a pistol, and a sawed off shotgun. One adult male was arrested and a warrant is being sought for another male living at the residence.
At 1 p.m., Detective Gannam was in the parking lot of Andersen's Bakery, when he heard a child yell, "Stop it, stop!" Detective Gannam looked towards the Chevy's parking lot and observed a male attempting to strike and then violently shake a female. Detective Gannam ran over to provide assistance. Detective Gannam ultimately arrested the adult male for domestic violence. The victim and two young children (9 and 4 years old) were crying and visibly upset, but not injured.
At 9:53 p.m., two adults were walking home after using the Bank of the West ATM machine on Central Avenue. The victims were approached by two male suspects wearing dark clothing. One of the suspects pointed a semiautomatic style handgun at the victims. The suspects then demanded the victims to drop all of their valuables on the ground. The second suspect then collected the victim's valuables while the first suspect held them at gunpoint. The victims fled into Robin Court after the incident. The suspects were described as black males, in their early to middle 20's. One of the suspects was described as being about 5 foot 10 inches tall, and weighing about 175 pounds.
At 11:12 p.m., an adult male and female were approached by two suspects as they walked back to their parked car on Tamarack Drive, near Ithaca Street. Both suspects were holding firearms when they demanded the victims drop their property on the ground. The victims said a third suspect was acting as a lookout, while the two suspects demanded their property. The suspects were last seen getting into a white or silver colored sedan. The three suspects were described as being black males, 5 foot 9 inches to 6 feet tall, and approximately 20 years old. This incident and the prior robbery at the Bank of the West are most likely related. Anyone with any information about either of these cases should contact the Investigations Unit.
At 4:22 p.m., officers were dispatched to investigate a male seen in possession of a gun. Witnesses reported seeing the male brandishing a firearm in the area. Arriving officers contacted the adult male inside Wal-Mart. The suspect refused to obey officers' orders and he attempted to pull away from their grasp. After a few tense moments the suspect was placed into handcuffs and a replica firearm was recovered.
