Officer Wright observed a vehicle driving reckless southbound on Paseo Padre Pkwy near Fremont Blvd. Officer Wright attempted to catch up to the vehicle to make an enforcement stop, however the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed and she wasn't able to catch up to it. Just as Officer Wright terminated her efforts, she observed the vehicle crash at Paseo and Isherwood. Officer Wright then continued to the collision scene and observed the driver (solo occupant of the vehicle) exit and flee southwest on foot. The suspect jumped over a fence into the backyard of a residence on Isherwood. Additional units responded and quickly set up a perimeter. The abandoned vehicle was stolen out of Fremont and contained a large amount of Marijuana. K-9 Officer Dodson responded to search. K-9 Officer Romley also deployed and assisted with the search. A CHP helicopter responded to assist and a thorough yard to yard search was conducted, however the suspect was not located. The outstanding suspect is described as a white male adult, 5' 9", wearing a grey shirt and brown shorts. Officer Wright and Luevano are following up on the case.

At approximately 4:30 p.m., Fremont Fire and Police responded to a structure fire on Farwell Drive with people still inside. Officers responded Code-3 and arrive at the same time as Fire. When they arrive, the residence was completely engulfed in flames. Officers Luevano & Wright locate a male looking out of a window located on the side of the house and needed assistance getting out. The window was high off the ground making it a difficult rescue for responding units. Officer Luevano quickly solved the problem by driving his patrol vehicle up to the house and using the hood as an elevated platform. Officers Luevano & Wright assisted FFD with extracting the male, who then alerted first responders that his parents were still inside the burning residence. FFD then made entry into the house and located the other two victims. Officers Luevano and Wright continued to assist FFD and helped extract an adult female, an adult male and the firefighters who had entered the home. The three victims were all transported to local hospitals in various states of condition. The adult son was released and the parents remain hospitalized.

Shortly after 6:30 p.m., a caller reported that she was robbed at gun point by an unknown male and compelled by fear of the firearm to drive around the area. The victim stated that she was on Mohave Common, when an adult male entered her vehicle, pointed a gun at her, and ordered her to drive her from the area. At some point during the incident, the suspect told the victim that his friend had been shot and that he was trying to get out of the area. The victim drove a very short distance when the suspect took her purse and removed her driver's license. He then fled the vehicle. Case investigated by Officer Smith.
Suspect: South Asian Indian adult male, 5'9," with a thin build, last seen wearing a gray beanie hat, gray t-shirt and red basketball shorts. He was further described as "good looking" with a scruffy beard.

A female was battered and sustained injuries from an adult male in the laundry room at Pathfinder Village. The 55 year old adult female was in the laundry room with her grandchildren doing laundry when the suspect became angry because the victim moved his clothes. The suspect punched the victim in the face causing a severe injury that required medical attention. The suspect was nice enough to leave his "Parole Orientation Packet" at the scene and was tracked back to his apartment. The 31 year old adult male was arrested without incident by Officer Nordseth and FTO Dodson.
