Crime Alert Bulletin Covering the Week of December 5-11, 2022

When I mention “the unit block” of a street, this means the incident occurred at an address anywhere between 1 and 99 of the street.  
There were two robberies during the past week.
On Tuesday, 12-06-22, at approximately 11:30 a.m., Officer Rodriguez was dispatched to Dollar Tree on Mission Street on a report of a robbery. A store employee stated that this suspect would often come into the store and shoplift. The suspect wore a beanie, a surgical mask, and an orange jacket. The store employee approached the suspect in the beauty aisle, who had pens, baby wipes, and scissors in his possession. The store employee attempted to retrieve all the merchandise that the suspect had and told the suspect to leave the store. While the store employee was trying to retrieve the merchandise, the suspect punched her one time in the face. The punch broke the store employee’s glasses and left a red mark on her face. The suspect left the store with the merchandise. Officer Yip later located the suspect in the area of Goethe Street and Mission Street. Upon searching the suspect, a brown vitamin bottle containing coins and a brown powdery substance, suspected heroin, was found in his left front jacket pocket, five bottles of shampoo were found concealed in the bottom of his pant legs, and 3 new packs of Jot brand pens, 2 new packs of Jot brand scissors, and 2 new packs of Nickelodeon brand Baby Shark hand wipes were found in the suspect’s backpack. The stolen merchandise from Dollar Tree was valued at $9.61. The suspect, a 34-year-old Daly City resident, was arrested and booked into jail for robbery and possession of a controlled substance.
On Sunday, 12-11-22, at approximately 6:32 p.m., Officer I. Perez was dispatched to Macy’s on a report of a robbery. Macy’s asset protection saw two suspects with clothing. One of the suspects took out a pair of pliers and removed security sensors from the clothing. This same suspect also selected a sweatshirt, put it on, and then placed his jacket over it. This suspect continued to remove security sensors from clothing merchandise. The other suspect was holding clothing in her arms and both suspects walked past manned cash registers. Two other asset protection employees attempted to stop both suspects after they exited the doors. The first asset protection agent joined them at the exit. Two additional suspects appeared. Two of the asset protection agents were punched in the face by the suspects. All four suspects fled in a red Ford minivan with $401 in stolen clothes. This investigation is continuing.
