Crime Alert Bulletin Covering the Week of August 14-20, 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 Tuesday, 08-15-23, at approximately 1:00 p.m., Valliani Jewelers at the Serramonte Shopping Center was a victim of robbery by three suspects. A female suspect entered the jewelry store, remained on her phone, and asked to try on a Rolex watch valued at $38,000. A store employee asked for the suspect’s ID as collateral while she tried on the watch. As the female suspect tried on the watch, two additional suspects wearing black clothing with hoodies and full masks entered the store. The two suspects approached the female suspect and grabbed her arm while she was wearing the watch. The employee tried to prevent the suspects from taking the watch. The employee said that the female suspect voluntarily gave her arm to the two other suspects while the employee was trying to hold onto the arm of the female suspect. The two suspects were able to remove the watch and ran off. The female suspect left without her ID. All three suspects got into the same vehicle and fled. This investigation is continuing. 
On Friday, 08-18-23, at approximately 5:33 p.m., on the unit block of Westdale Avenue, officers were dispatched to a report of a theft. While a FedEx employee was delivering packages, a white Honda Accord with tinted windows and no plates drove up to a FedEx truck. The driver remained in the vehicle while two suspects wearing hoods and masks exited the Honda, entered the FedEx truck, and took multiple packages. The employee noticed that the suspects were taking packages and approached the suspects. One of the suspects ran back to the Honda; however, the second suspect punched the employee, causing injury, and then ran back to the Honda. The Honda fled westbound on Westdale Avenue.

On Saturday, 08-19-23, at approximately 1:19 a.m., at the parking lot of the Teglia Community Center on Abbot Avenue, a victim was robbed of his satchel. The victim said he was sitting in the passenger seat of a vehicle when a suspect approached him and punched him multiple times in the face and head while another suspect either attempted to open or opened the trunk. The victim later realized his satchel containing a wallet, keys, and cell phone valued at approximately $100 was missing. Through investigation, the satchel was located in another vehicle driven by the suspect, who attempted to open or open the trunk. The suspect who punched the victim, a 32-year-old Daly City resident, was arrested and booked into jail for robbery, battery, conspiracy, and other offenses. The other suspect, a 27-year-old Daly City resident, was arrested for robbery and conspiracy.
On Saturday, 08-19-23, at approximately 10:52 p.m., an officer was dispatched to Lucky Supermarkets on Mission Street on a report of a male who brandished a Taser. A manager of Lucky’s said that he was advised by a coworker that there was a potential shoplifter. The manager observed the suspect pushing a shopping cart with two 24-packs of beer, a pack of Oreos, and laundry detergent worth approximately $90 out into the parking lot. The manager saw a female suspect exit from a gray Mercedes-Benz and load a pack of beer worth approximately $30 into the back of the vehicle. The manager and the first suspect grabbed the shopping cart. A minute later, a third suspect exited the vehicle with a Taser and activated it. Once the manager heard the Taser being activated, he let go of the shopping cart as he was afraid of getting hurt. All three suspects entered the vehicle and fled northbound on Mission Street. The suspect who took the beer was described as a stocky White male, approximately 30 years old, 5’7” tall, with orange facial hair, and wearing an orange beanie, tan shirt, black pants, and white shoes. The suspect who placed the beer in the vehicle was described as a slim White female, approximately 20 years old, 5’10” tall, and wearing a red sweater and dark-colored pants. The suspect with the Taser was described as a tall and broad-built Black male, approximately 30 years old, and wearing black clothing. This investigation is continuing. 
On Sunday, 08-20-23, at approximately 9:38 p.m., officers were dispatched to Lucky Supermarkets on Mission Street on a report of an assault. A manager said he saw two suspects, one carrying a case of beer valued at approximately $30, walk past registers and out of the store without paying. Both the manager and a security guard ran after the suspects. The manager said both suspects started to push the security guard with their shoulders and body. The manager ran over to help, and one of the suspects pushed the manager with his shoulder. The manager grabbed the beer, causing it to fall to the ground. One of the suspects walked behind the manager and placed him in a chokehold for a second. The security guard stated he believed that customers began to help separate the parties, and that’s when the suspects left. The suspects got into a vehicle and were eventually pulled over by officers. Both suspects, a 22-year-old San Francisco resident and a 23-year-old San Francisco resident, were arrested and booked into jail for robbery.
Residential Burglaries
There was one residential burglary during the past week.
On Saturday, 08-19-23, at approximately 3:50 a.m., on the unit block of Poncetta Drive, a known suspect forced his way into a residence. The suspect, a 30-year-old San Francisco resident, was arrested and booked into jail for residential burglary and other charges.

The first victim had her cell phone, wallet, CA driver’s license, Tesla key, $400 in checks made out to an individual, $70, and credit cards taken. The suspect attempted to make credit card charges at a retail store, but the transactions were declined. The second victim had her rubber chicken purse, wallet, $200, three credit cards, $70 in miscellaneous credit cards, two pairs of sunglasses, Tiffany’s pen, prescription glasses, and a Volkswagen key fob taken.

San Mateo County Alert System (SMC)
Have you signed up to receive these alerts? This alert is a free digital communication system used by emergency management agencies and first responders to send emergency alerts, notifications, and updates to portable digital devices. In an emergency situation, an alert will be sent by San Mateo County authorized personnel, and you will receive messages on your cell phone or mobile device. Most carriers activate the service automatically. To receive emergency alerts, sign up by visiting is a free private social networking website for your neighborhood. This private network ensures that only those who live in your neighborhood can join; users must go through a verification process. Neighbors ask each other for business recommendations; help in locating missing pets; discuss relevant local government issues; or connect for other reasons. It is very easy to sign up. I like the fact that the site verifies users by addresses, and it won’t allow people to access a neighborhood if they don’t live there. Please note: The City of Daly City and/or the Police Department cannot see what residents post—we are only allowed to post information. There is also a mobile application, or you can have it sent to your e-mail. Give it a try!
