Crime Alert Bulletin Covering the Week of August 21-27, 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 three robberies during the past week.
On Wednesday, 08-23-23, at approximately 8:10 p.m., Zumiez at the Serramonte Shopping Center was a victim of a robbery by three suspects. One of the suspects concealed merchandise valued at approximately $375 in a bag. As employees attempted to retrieve the merchandise, two suspects spat, pushed, scratched, and hit the employees. All three suspects left the store. The first suspect was described as a Black female, approximately 20 years old, 210 pounds, 5’5” tall, with wavy brown hair with highlights, and wearing a white tee shirt and black or brown pants. The second suspect was described as a Black female, approximately 19 years old, 140 pounds, 5’6”-5’8” tall, with black hair in a ponytail, and wearing a black tee shirt and gray sweats. The third suspect was described as a Black female, approximately 19 years old, 100 pounds, 5’4” tall, with long brown hair, and wearing a black tank top and green pants. This investigation is continuing.
On Saturday, 08-26-23, at approximately 9:22 p.m., officers were dispatched to the Burlington Coat Factory at the Westlake Shopping Center on a report of a suspicious subject. A manager said the suspect entered the store and concealed approximately $40 worth of merchandise. The manager asked the suspect to leave. The suspect waited in line to check out but could not pay for the items. The suspect then walked outside the store while still holding the unpaid merchandise. Once the suspect walked outside the store, a loss prevention employee alerted security guards. The security guards tried to apprehend the suspect. The suspect dropped a stolen item, and as the loss prevention employee went to pick it up, the suspect pepper sprayed her and fled. While officers were speaking with the manager, security advised that a subject was yelling in the bathroom at Nick the Greek, and the description of the subject matched the suspect. Officers contacted the subject, and the Burlington Coat Factory manager identified the subject as the suspect. The suspect, a 39-year-old San Francisco resident, was arrested and booked into jail for robbery, providing a false identification to an officer, and an outstanding warrant.
On Sunday, 08-27-23, at approximately 2:27 p.m., officers were dispatched to Safeway at the Westlake Shopping Center on a report of two females who stole merchandise. A security guard stated that two suspects walked towards the exit. One suspect was carrying a basket with merchandise and the other suspect was holding merchandise in her arms. The security guard retrieved the basket with merchandise, and the store manager came to assist and began to remove items from the basket. While the security guard was focused on one suspect, the other suspect threw a drink, which hit the security guard’s head. Both suspects left the store with approximately $125 worth of stolen merchandise and fled in a vehicle. An officer located the suspect vehicle and pulled over the vehicle on Mission Street. The security guard was able to identify both suspects. One of the suspects, a 17-year-old Daly City resident, was arrested and booked into the Youth Services Center for robbery and conspiracy. The other suspect, an 18-year-old San Francisco resident, was arrested and booked into jail for robbery, conspiracy, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.  
Residential Burglaries
There was one residential burglary during the past week.
On Tuesday, 08-22-23, at approximately 2:29 a.m., on the 300 block of Price Street, officers were dispatched on a report of a trespasser in the backyard. A resident said he saw the suspect in front of their door at 12:30 a.m. The resident asked the suspect to leave. The suspect left after a few minutes. At approximately 2:29 a.m., the suspect returned and broke through a backyard wooden door. Behind the wooden door was a metal gate. The resident heard the suspect bang and shake the metal gate. Officers who arrived on the scene heard the wooden door break and the metal gate shaking. Officers announced themselves, and the shaking of the metal gate stopped. The suspect ran and jumped the fences of multiple backyards. The suspect fell and was apprehended by officers. The suspect, a 27-year-old San Francisco resident, was arrested and booked into jail for burglary and resisting arrest.

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!
