At approximately 9:30 p.m., a victim called 911 from a residence at the top of Morrison Canyon to report that they were trying to detain a suspect inside the residence. The caller had just gotten home and was noticing that the home was ransacked when they realized the suspect was still inside. While dispatch was on the line, the suspect broke free and another struggle ensued. East Bay Regional Parks called and said they were also sending officers as this property was their jurisdiction. Numerous officers responded code 3, but it took over 10 minutes to get to the remote area, approximately 1/4 mile up the road. Officers had to use bolt cutters to get into the gated property once they were able to locate it. Once they reached the home, the suspect was found inside the residence being held down by the victim. The suspect was combative and placed in a WRAP. EBRPPD arrived on the scene and assumed the investigation and transported the suspect to jail. Great coordination by FPD Dispatch and numerous officers in locating the residence and securing the scene as the victim was fighting the suspect for a very long time prior to our arrival.

We responded to the Ardenwood area (34000 block of Wellman Terrace) just before 1:30 p.m. on the report of a necklace/chain robbery. The victim called approximately 10 minutes after the incident occurred and reported that a Hispanic male adult, dark skinned, 6Õ, 160-180lbs, in his 20Õs, wearing a grey sweatshirt and jeans, stole her necklace. The suspect fled the area after jumping a fence and was last seen walking northbound on Deep Creek Rd. Officers checked the area but could not locate the suspect.
We received a verified alarm for commercial burglary at SS Commercial Landscape located on Osgood Rd. A male suspect cut a lock from the security gate to gain access. The alarm company utilized live video surveillance to monitor the suspect as he stacked his loot near his entry point. CSI Wilson and Officer Little were the only available units to respond. They confirmed hearing the suspect inside the fenced area. Newark PD assisted by sending two K9 units (Special thanks to Newark K9 Officers Jackman and Mavrakis!). After concluding the search up north, K9 Officer Layfield and additional FPD units responded to set a perimeter. The K9 search indicated the suspect fled north to the Tri-City Rock property. NewarkÕs K9s searched that property with negative results. Unfortunately, the suspect caught on to the police response and fled prior to our ability to set up containment. Suspect vehicle was located at the landscape business and towed as evidence. Detectives offered to follow up on the case with CSI Wilson.

Civic Center/Washington Hospital (WTH) Driveway: A 74 year old female traveling eastbound in the crosswalk between WTH and WTH West was struck by a vehicle driving southbound on Civic Center. Impact caused the pedestrian to cartwheel over the car and land on the roadway. The pedestrian suffered major injuries and was transported to a local hospital. Investigated by Officer Er. Marcelino.
At approximately 3:40 p.m. officers were dispatched to a report of loss prevention fighting with an adult male who had been detained for theft at FoodMaxx on the 39400 block of Fremont Blvd. The man had entered the store and tried to steal a 24 oz. bottle of beer. Loss Prevention confronted the suspect and told him to give the alcohol back and leave. The suspect didnÕt initially comply and attempted to threaten the Loss Prevention Officer, who was much bigger than he was. When he didnÕt get his way, he began to spit in the face of the Loss Prevention Officer. Loss prevention was able to detain him until officers arrived. As officers attempted to make the arrest, the suspect continued to struggle. He made threats towards the officers and he was eventually restraining with a WRAP device and a spit hood. He was ultimately charged with robbery, threatening an officer, terrorist threats, resisting arrest, and a probation violation. Investigated by Officer Nordseth and FTO Dodson.
The reporting party called 9-1-1 to report his business was being burglarized. The caller stated that he owns a business, located in two adjacent suites, in a business complex located on Enterprise St. The caller was inside one of his suites and said that he could hear the voices of a male and female inside his adjacent suite. As units were responding, the caller told dispatch the suspects were now trying to force open the door that connects the two suites. The caller then stated that he had armed himself with a handgun and was waiting for police. Several patrols units responded and established a perimeter. The caller was instructed to put away his firearm and evacuate himself to the officers. Instead, the caller came out with his handgun in his right pocket and his cocaine in his left pocket. A surround and callout / search of the business was negative for any suspects. There were several firearms lying around in plain sight. The 30 year old male adult, Fremont resident, was suspected of being under the influence of a controlled substance and placed under arrest. Seized from the business were four weapons. Investigated by Officer Sasser.
A 27-year-old female was walking on Bay St. when a male suspect, described as a black male adult, 20-25 yrs., heavy set, wearing a black sweatshirt and dark blue jeans, pulled her purse away from her.
