Auto Burglary Arrest:

On April 9th at 4:45 pm, officers responded to a call of an auto boost that occurred in the area of Felton and Amherst. They met with the victim, a postal worker, who stated that he had returned to his parked work vehicle and noticed that one of the windows had been broken. He then observed a subject nearby whose attention was drawn to a cell phone that he was holding. The victim recognized the cell phone as his own and also observed that the subject was holding the victim’s lunchbox. Both cell phone and lunch box had been in the victim’s car when he parked it. The victim confronted the suspect at which point the suspect dropped the stolen items and took off running. The officers searched the area and located the suspect hiding in some bushes in the area of University and Burrows. He was positively identified and taken into custody. The suspect was cited and released from the scene. (SFPD Case No. 150310832)

 Auto Theft, Possession of Counterfeit Currency Arrest:

On April 10th at 6:40 pm, officers patrolling in the Alice Griffith Housing Development drove past a stopped vehicle on the 2500 block of Griffith. A record check revealed that the car had been reported as stolen. The subject in the driver’s seat of the stolen vehicle got out and attempted to distance himself from the car before the officers took him into custody. A search of his person revealed multiple counterfeit bills in $50 and $100 denominations. The suspect was booked on auto theft, possession of stolen property, and possession of counterfeit money at Bayview Station. (SFPD Case No. 150252886)

Carjacking Attempt Arrest:

On April 11th at 11:50 pm, officers responded to the 1300 block of Palou on a call of multiple suspects surrounding a vehicle in the middle of the street while beating on the car and attempting to gain entry. The arriving officers located the three suspects, who matched the broadcast description, near the victim vehicle. The officers detained two of the suspects without incident while the third suspect took off running. He got behind a parked mini bus and threw down a metallic object that clanked when it contacted the ground. He then came out from behind the vehicle and complied with the officers’ commands. The item that he discarded was recovered and tuned out to be a BB gun. The 41 year old driver of the victim vehicle told the officers that she had come to a stop at Keith and Palou when the suspects surrounded her car. One of the suspects managed to get into the passenger seat while another opened the driver’s door and attempted to yank her out of her vehicle. She positively identified all of the suspects who were subsequently taken into custody. The suspects, all juveniles between the ages of 12 and 15, were cited for attempted carjacking and conspiracy charges. (SFPD Case No. 150318137)


On April 13th at 11:15 pm, a 22 year old victim was robbed at Brussels and Felton. She told the responding officers that she had parked her car and was walking towards her home when she was jumped from behind by two female suspects. During the struggle the victim was punched multiple times and pepper sprayed. The suspects stole the victim’s wallet and cell phone before getting into a waiting dark colored sedan that sped from the scene. The officers searched the area for the suspects and vehicle but were unable to locate them that night. This incident is under investigation. (SFPD Case No. 150324225)
