Crime Alert Bulletin Covering the Week of January 2-8, 2023

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 five robberies during the past week.
On Monday, 01-02-23, at approximately 12:30 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 2000 block of Geneva Avenue on a report of a strong-arm robbery. The victim stated that a suspect grabbed his jacket and demanded for his cell phone. The victim refused and was hit in the head two times with a piece of wood by the suspect. The suspect reached into the victim’s jacket pocket, took $500, and fled. The suspect was described as a Black male in his late 30s to early 40s, wearing black pants, a black short sleeve shirt, and a red beanie. This investigation is continuing.
On Tuesday, 01-03-23, at approximately 2:07 p.m., officers were dispatched to Uniqlo on a report of an altercation. A loss prevention employee stated that a suspect entered the store and took two paper bags. The suspect walked around the store, selected a white sweater, entered the dressing room for a few minutes, and then left the store. The loss prevention employee stopped the suspect by the exit and asked the suspect to return the bags. The suspect reentered the store and was asked to leave multiple times. The loss prevention employee saw the suspect reach into her bag as if she was reaching for a weapon. The loss prevention employee believed the suspect had a weapon and asked, “Whatcha got in there? You gonna shoot me, stab me?” The suspect responded and said, “Imma kill you!” Eventually, the loss prevention employee and the suspect went outside the store, where the suspect punched and tore the clothing of the loss prevention employee. Officers found that the suspect had two Uniqlo tags in her jacket pocket and a large silver magnet and a white sweater in her belongings. The suspect was also wearing a pair of white sweats with the size sticker still on it under her gray sweatpants. Both the sweater and sweats matched the two tags found in the jacket pocket. The stolen merchandise was valued at approximately $40. The suspect, a 19-year-old San Francisco resident, was arrested and booked into jail for robbery and possession of a burglary tool.

On Saturday, 01-07-23, at approximately 10:30 a.m., at the intersection of Park Plaza Drive and Southgate Avenue, an SUV stopped next to a victim. The rear passenger waved the victim over and asked the victim where the nearest church was. After the victim responded, the suspect proceeded to place a fake gold ring on the victim’s hand and give the victim a fake gold necklace and a $20 bill. As the victim refused the items, the suspect grabbed the victim’s gold necklace valued at approximately $7,500 and fled. The driver of the SUV was described as an Arabic male, approximately 40 years of age. The passenger was described as a female adult with long black hair.
On Saturday, 01-07-23, at approximately 3:36 p.m., officers were dispatched to Safeway on a report of a theft. A suspect grabbed a black colored purse hanging from the victim’s shoulder and removed a coin purse. Another victim who tried to help grabbed the coin purse, which caused the suspect to eventually let it go. The suspect was able to take $130 from the coin purse and flee. The suspect was described as either a Black or Asian female adult wearing black clothing. This investigation is continuing.
On Sunday, 01-08-23, at approximately 11:40 a.m., officers were dispatched to Victoria’s Secret on a report of a robbery. Victoria’s Secret staff stated that five females described as Hispanic, Black, and Pacific Islander entered the store and stole merchandise off the display tables. An employee stated one of the suspects picked up two wooden display trays and threw them at her. The suspect also said, “Don’t touch me, or I will hit you.” Another employee heard this same suspect state, “Don’t touch me. You know you can’t touch me. I’ll come back and beat you up.” The suspects placed $14,000 worth of merchandise into black trash bags and left the store. This investigation is continuing.

Eventually, the suspect walked outside. A witness in the store closed the door and locked it. This suspect attempted to reenter the business by kicking the door once, causing damage, then hitting the windowpane of the business three times with a closed fist, causing the glass to shatter. Both suspects walked away and were subsequently located at Hillside Boulevard and Brunswick Street.
