At 12:07 a.m., Officer Persinger was dispatched to a report of street racing in the area of Transit and Atlantic Avenue. Two vehicles were in the process of conducting a street race as Officer Persinger arrived. One of the two racers attempted to flee as Officer Persinger turned on the lights and siren. Raul Martinez (Hayward resident) had his vehicle towed and was issued a very expensive citation after a short failure to yield (vehicle pursuit). Hopefully in the future Mr. Martinez will just stop for the police.
This week we received a special request to keep an eye out for a stolen Jeep. A 1985 Jeep Renegade (license #1LYH357) was stolen from in front of a residence on Darcelle Drive in Union City. The Jeep looks similar to a standard Jeep Wrangler model and it is red with a black top. Please call 911 if you see the stolen vehicle.
At 10:10 p.m., a male suspect entered an apartment on Decoto Road. The suspect put his left arm around the victimÕs neck and placed a knife to her throat. The suspect walked the victim into a bathroom and told her not to scream. The suspect said nothing else to the victim and he walked out of the bathroom towards the living room. A family member came home as the suspect was walking towards the living room. The suspect then fled out a window. The suspect was described as a black male adult, approximately 40 years old, dark complexion, with a medium build. The suspect might be a local transient. Anyone with information on the identity of the possible suspect is encouraged to contact the Union City Police Department.
