At 9:42 p.m., a victim was seated at the Snowflake Tea House on Decoto Road. Three suspects (two male and one female) grabbed the victimÕs wallet and cellular telephone off of her table and ran towards the BART station. The victim attempted to follow the suspects as they fled towards the BART station. One of the males brandished a black firearm at the victim to deter her from following them. The Investigations Division is conducting follow up on the case.

A female victim was driving on Union City Boulevard near Smith Street at 2:35 p.m. The victim had stopped at red light when a white two-door Honda pulled up next to her. The male driver smiled as he exposed his genitalia at the victim. The suspect vehicle was last seen turning on Smith Street. The victim described the suspect as being a tall, white male with a thin build and brown hair. The victim described the suspectÕs vehicle as being a 1990Õs style, white, two-door Honda with a partial license plate of Ò3E000Ó.

Officer Mangan noticed a motorcycle traveling on Industrial Parkway at 8:44 p.m. Officer Mangan checked the license plate number of the motorcycle and learned the vehicle was reported stolen out of Oakland. Officer Mangan contacted and arrested Antonio Alvarez (Hayward resident) for being in possession of the stolen motorcycle.

At 11:20 p.m., Sergeant Derting attempted to contact a male that stopped a vehicle in the middle of 14th Street. The driver fled from the vehicle and ran into a local residence as Sergeant Derting arrived. The homeowner was in the backyard of his residence when the suspect ran into his house. The homeowner gave responding Officers his consent to search his residence in an attempt to locate the unwanted trespasser. Officers conducted a search of the residence and found the suspect hiding inside of the residence. Apparently the suspect did not want to get caught inside of the stolen vehicle he abandoned in the middle of the street. Alan Epps (Hayward resident) was arrested for possessing burglary tools, trespassing, resisting arrest, and for being in possession of a stolen vehicle.

Officer Geldermann was working at James Logan High School as the School Resource Officer (SRO). At 11:30 a.m., Officer Geldermann began receiving third-hand information about an armed robbery that had just occurred. James Logan High School and Sears Elementary School were placed into ÒlockdownÓ procedures as a precautionary measure. The lockdown procedure was lifted after Officer Geldermann was able to determine the incident did not occur on any school campus and the suspects in this case had fled the area. It turned out that the incident actually occurred on 14th Street (near James Logan). The incident involved three males fighting and ultimately pointing what appeared to be a firearm at a male victim as they stole the victimÕs iPod. Major Crime Task Force Officers were able to locate all three suspects near Fairway Park in the City of Hayward. The victim responded to the area and positively identified all three suspects. Three juvenile suspects from the City of Hayward were arrested on multiple felony charges to include armed robbery and possession of stolen property. A pellet gun and the victimÕs stolen iPod were recovered in the suspectÕs vehicle.

Anyone with information on local crime or any of the listed incidents should contact the Investigations Division at 510-675-5247. Those wishing to remain anonymous can contact the tips line by calling 510-675-5207 or email
