At about 9:20 a.m. officers responded to a domestic battery report in the area of Glenmoor and Logan Drives. A woman reported that her 41-year-old boyfriend had battered her and was still inside the house. Police learned there was at least one firearm in the residence and that the man had a violent criminal history and active warrants. A perimeter was set up, and as a precaution two adjacent homes were evacuated and Logan Drive was closed between Faulkner Drive and Central Avenue. Helping to take the suspect into custody were the SWAT and Tactical Medic Teams and hostage negotiators.
At approximately 11:36 p.m. a caller reported that a man pointed a gun at him and stole his vehicle, a 2001 Audi A6, from a parking lot located near the corner of Beacon Avenue and Fremont Boulevard. A witness observed the suspect flee northbound onto Fremont Boulevard. They also reported that a second suspect, possibly a female, fled in a red vehicle. The first suspect was described as a black man, about 6-feet-5-inches tall, wearing a black jacket, white mask and armed with a handgun.

At 2:29 p.m. Loss prevention personnel at the Safeway on Mission Boulevard in the Warm Springs area attempted to detain two suspects who had just committed a petty theft. The first suspect left the store and got into a vehicle while loss prevention workers tried to detain the second suspect, who resisted. The first suspect then drove the vehicle toward the loss prevention workers and accelerated to force them to release the second suspect. The vehicle struck and ran over the foot of one of the loss prevention workers. Then, the second suspect entered the vehicle and the pair drove away. Workers noted the vehicleÕs license plate number and provide police with a description of the vehicle. Officer Franchi located the suspect vehicle driving northbound on Interstate 880. With backup units, a felony car stop was made and both suspects, a 30-year-old woman and a 26-year-old man, both of Fremont, were arrested on suspicion of robbery.
A man walked into the Goodwill store on Mowry Avenue and changed out his clothes for a set of newer ones. An employee confronted the man who then started to kick and break the glass displays. Officers arrived but they did not locate the man. Later, at approximately 5:18 p.m., Sgt. Ehling located a possible suspect. An in-field inquiry was done, and the 37-year-old Berkeley man was positively identified. Officer Perry took custody of the suspect and took him to the Fremont Jail.
At 1:14 a.m. a man entered a gas station in the 5500 block of Auto Mall Parkway and pointed a gun at the clerk, and ordered him to lay down. The man stole cigarettes valued at approximately $1,500 and fled on foot. The suspect was described as a black man in his 40s, wearing black clothing and a red bandana over his face, and armed with a handgun.
Tuesday, Oct. 31
Officer Taylor was flagged down in a parking lot located around Mowry Avenue and Fremont Boulevard by an employee stating a man had just stolen some meat from the deli area of their grocery store and took off on a bicycle. The suspect was described as a white or Hispanic male who had a shaved head and was wearing a red polo shirt and blue jeans. He was last seen westbound riding a bicycle on Mowry Avenue. Officers searched the area but were not able to locate him.
At 4:08 p.m. an employee from a bank in the 5100 block of Mowry Avenue reported that a man was inside the bank trying to cash a fraudulent check. The suspect was still at the counter during the call and the employees gave a good description over the phone as to what the suspect looked like and was wearing. As officers arrived on-scene, two men exited the bank together dressed similarly and appeared to be together. Police ordered both men to stop because they matched the suspect description. The first man was quickly handcuffed, while the other man attempted to flee on foot, but was quickly captured and handcuffed. The man that attempted to run was not the suspect who was trying to cash the fraudulent check, but police learned the 51-year-old San Francisco resident had an outstanding warrant. The other man, age 65, was positively identified as the person trying to pass the forged check. Both suspects were arrested.
