A caller reported that for the past two weekends a Hispanic male, age 30-40, 5'09/5'10, described as physically fit, has been hiding in the bushes near the track at Walters Jr. High. The male was jumping out from behind bushes and harassing female joggers on the track as they ran past him. He runs with them, sprints ahead, circles around them, makes noises and whistles, but never speaks. The caller stated that on both occurrences he was on the adjacent field and observed the man harassing his wife who was running on the track. He went on to state that the male was hiding behind buildings, doing pushups, hanging and thrashing on trees and breaking branches. Last week the incident occurred around 2:30 p.m. and the caller stated that he had been wearing red shorts. This week we were called around 11:30 a.m. and he was reportedly wearing a black tank top, black shorts, black shoes and had what appeared to be elbow protection like that of a rollerblader. Officer Baca and K9 Harkos checked the area for the suspect, but did not locate him. No other reports have been made in this area with similar circumstances. Case being investigated and followed up by Ofc. Baca.
Officers were called to a suspicious circumstance call on Pizarro where several females in a red Honda were apparently trying to steal a gold Honda that was parked on the street. Both vehicles had left the area, but Ofc. Stillitano spotted a red and a gold Honda driving north on Fremont. Each was being driven by a young female matching the description given by the caller. Ofc. Stillitano attempted to stop the gold Honda and the female driver took off, attempting to elude him. No pursuit was initiated but he watched as the vehicle turned onto Whitehead. Units checked the area and found the gold Honda parked and running on Coleman Place. Neighbors said that the driver had jumped over a fence prior to the officers arriving. After checking two yards, the 14 year old driver (suspect) was found attempting to hide. She was taken into custody and transported to FPD. The vehicle was, in fact, stolen.
