Thursday, August 8:
Union City patrol officers were sent to an address on Joyce Way, after receiving a phone call from the Elko Police Department in Nevada. The Elko Police Department had a subject call them and report that he/she had just killed their mother. Some of the information directed our officers to check an address on Joyce Way. Officers did not find any injured persons at the residence. The FBI ended up taking over the investigation. This call is just an example of one of the unusual calls the police department receive throughout the day.
Friday, August 9:
Officers investigated a residential burglary at the Greenhaven apartment complex. An unknown suspect entered the victim's residence through an open front window. The burglary occurred between 1 a.m. and 8 a.m. This burglary appears to be similar to one that occurred at the Avalon apartment complex the prior week.
At 1:50 p.m., officers were dispatched to an address on Lunar Way, to investigate a hate crime. An unknown suspect spray painted the word, "Terrorist" across the victim's garage door. The incident occurred between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Saturday, August 10:
At 7:37 p.m., officers investigated a carjacking. The victim had stopped in the area of 13th and F Street, when a black female approached from the passenger side of the vehicle. The female opened the passenger side door of the victim's vehicle and threw a liquid on the victim. The female then used an electric stun gun to shock the victim. The victim quickly exited his vehicle and ran away from the suspect. The suspect then got into the victim's vehicle and drove away from the scene. The victim's vehicle was later recovered on 14th Street, near University Avenue. The suspect was described as a black female, around 24 years old, approximately 5 foot 8 inches tall, with a heavy build.
Sunday, August 12:
At 7:54 a.m., officers were dispatched to investigate a dead body in a parked vehicle at 33325 Mission Boulevard. A caller reported an unresponsive male inside of his vehicle at the listed location. Arriving officers found an adult male sleeping inside of a vehicle with a broken side window. The male woke up as officers contacted him. Apparently the car burglar took a nap after breaking into three vehicles parked at the apartment complex. Officers transported the amateur car burglar to jail to get some much needed sleep.
Anyone with information on any of the listed cases should contact the Investigations Division at 510-675-5247.
