Crime Alert Bulletin Covering the Week of July 24-30, 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 was one robbery and two attempted robberies during the past week.
On Monday, 07-24-23, at approximately 12:35 p.m., officers were dispatched regarding a strong-arm robbery that occurred at Morton Drive and Simpson Drive. The victim stated as she was walking her dog, a black SUV stopped, a passenger exited and approached her. This suspect indicated she wanted to buy the victim’s jewelry. The victim informed the suspect that she didn’t want to sell her jewelry; therefore, the suspect began to grab the rings worn on her hands forcefully. The suspect also grabbed at the victim’s upper left arm. The victim pushed the suspect to stop the attack. The driver of the SUV said something to the suspect, which caused the suspect to get back into the car and drive away. Through investigation, both suspects were arrested later in the day at 2:15 p.m. The suspect who grabbed at the victim’s jewelry is a 38-year-old Sacramento resident. The driver of the vehicle is a 39-year-old Seattle resident. Both suspects were booked into jail for attempted robbery, conspiracy, and elder abuse.
On Monday, 07-24-23, at approximately 1:02 p.m., officers were dispatched to the parking lot of Original Joe's of Westlake on a report of a strong-arm robbery. The victim stated that while he was sitting in his vehicle, a suspect exited a car and then proceeded to use a tool to strike his front passenger window about six times. The suspect's car was parked directly behind the victim's vehicle, which prevented the victim from driving away. The victim, in fear, exited his vehicle and ran through the parking lot. The suspect opened the front passenger door, took the victim's backpack containing a MacBook Pro and miscellaneous documents, and drove away. The victim described the suspect as possibly a Filipino male wearing a black gator covering his lower face, a black hooded sweatshirt, and unknown-colored pants. Later, officers were able to locate the backpack, but the MacBook Pro worth $3,000 was gone.
On Monday, 07-24-23, between 7:45 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., on the unit block of Garwood Drive, three suspects attempted to rob a victim while he was walking. The victim got off the bus and noticed three suspects. He was wary of the suspects and tried to walk behind them. Once the victim got to Garwood Drive, two of the three suspects approached him and demanded money. The victim said he did not have money and that he was able to fight them off. The suspects ran away towards Hillside Boulevard. The victim described the first suspect as possibly a Hispanic male with a thin build, 5'9" tall, and wearing a black ski mask, dark hooded sweatshirt, and blue jeans. The second suspect was described as possibly a Hispanic male with a stocky build, 6'2" tall, and wearing a black ski mask and all dark clothing. The third suspect was described as possibly a Hispanic male with a heavy set build, 6'0" tall, and wearing a black ski mask, dark hooded sweatshirt, and gray sweatpants.

On Thursday, 07-27-23, between 8:25 p.m. and 10:00 p.m., a suspect attempted to enter a residence on the unit block of Morton Drive. The victims noticed the front door lock had been pried; however, the suspect could not gain entry due to the secured deadbolt. **Online report.
