At approximately 9:20 a.m., Officers Gaziano and Chan were dispatched to the 40900 block of High St to check on the welfare of a male.

Officers were dispatched to a residence on Blaisdell Way in Niles after residents reported that a grey and white Pitbull had attacked an elderly male and his grandson. The male sustained a severe injury to his hand and the child was bitten on the foot. While on the phone with dispatch, the caller said that the dog was attacking anything and everything in their yard, including a basketball, a tether ball, shoes, etc. Residents were locking themselves in their vehicles and homes for their safety. The male and child victims were able to take cover in a neighborÕs home, but needed medical aid. The first officer arrived and the dog immediately charged him. The officer used his baton to keep a safe distance and attempted to get the dog into the back of the patrol car. The dog took hold of the baton, ran off with it and destroyed it. The officer advised the residents and people in the neighborhood who were watching to stay indoors and away from their windows. Fremont Fire also arrived on scene and was not aware that the dog was still loose in the area. They exited their truck to provide medical treatment to the two victims at which point the dog charged them. Two firefighters scrambled into the truck cab, while the third was forced to climb up on top of the truck. The Pitbull then re-focused his efforts and charged the officer who in turn shot the dog one time. The dog died at the scene. The dog had no tags and was unknown to the residents in the area. The elderly victim was transported to the hospital via ambulance and the child was transported in a private vehicle. Both were later released. Sgt. Epps supervised and Animal Control responded for the investigation. Anyone with information about this dog is asked to please call the Fremont Police Department at 510-790-6800 and select option 3.

At approximately 5:10 p.m., officers responded to Fremont Toyota to investigate several stolen vehicles. Upon arrival CSO Oliveira learned that a pressure washer, a customer vehicle key and five customer vehicles were stolen from the outdoor parking lot to the rear of the dealership in between the service and detail bays. All of the vehicles were in for service and were waiting to be detailed. Employees were able to determine that the keys taken were for a vehicle still on the property. That vehicle was secured to prevent the suspects from returning to take it. Video surveillance was viewed by employees and they informed officers that a white 4-door vehicle enters the lot near the detail bay and 4-5 suspects exited the vehicle around 5:05 a.m. Officers spoke to management about securing the gates and not leaving vehicle keys accessible.
