Crime Alert Bulletin Covering the Week of September 25-October 1, 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 two robberies during the past week.
On Monday, 09-25-23, at approximately 4:18 p.m., officers were dispatched to Macy’s. A loss prevention detective stated that she saw two subjects grab items from shelves and exit the store without paying. After the suspects left the store, the loss prevention detective said she identified herself as asset protection from Macy’s and attempted to tell the suspects to go to the loss prevention office. The suspects continued to walk away. The loss prevention detective attempted to detain the first suspect; however, the loss prevention detective fell to the ground. Once she was on the ground, the first suspect began to strike her in the face. Other loss prevention staff arrived and assisted in detaining the first suspect. Meanwhile, another loss prevention detective attempted to detain a second suspect and got elbowed twice in the right shoulder. The first suspect stole approximately $860 worth of fragrance, and the second suspect stole approximately $510 worth of fragrance. Once the suspects were detained, it was discovered they also had approximately $2,300 worth of stolen Victoria’s Secret merchandise in their bags. There was a third suspect who stole merchandise from Victoria’s Secret and left the store. The first suspect, a 22-year-old San Lorenzo resident, was arrested and booked into jail for robbery, organized retail theft, grand theft, and conspiracy to commit a crime. The second suspect, a 20-year-old San Lorenzo resident, was also arrested and booked into jail for the same charges.
On Saturday, 09-30-23, at approximately 9:39 a.m., an officer was dispatched to Dollar Tree on Mission Street on a report of an armed robbery. The store manager stated that her cashier notified her a suspect was trying to purchase six $500 VISA gift cards. The store manager told the suspect she could only sell him one gift card. The manager attempted to activate the gift card, but it didn’t work; therefore, the suspect went to retrieve another gift card. After activating the $500 gift card, the suspect demanded a receipt and for the manager to open the register. The suspect then pulled a black handgun from his pocket and pointed it at the manager and the cashier. Both the manager and the cashier were scared. The manager completed the transaction, opened the register, and provided the suspect with the receipt. The suspect did not make any threats or attempt to take any money from the register; he only took the gift card and receipt and then left the store. The manager described the suspect as a skinny Hispanic male, approximately 20 years old, 5’6” tall, and wearing black gloves, a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood up, a black ski mask, gray sweatpants, and black shoes. The gift card was deactivated. This investigation is continuing. 
Residential Burglaries
There were no residential burglaries during the past week.
Commercial Burglaries
There were four commercial burglaries during the past week.
On Wednesday, 09-27-23, at approximately 12:25 p.m., a suspect entered 24 Hour Fitness on Gellert Boulevard and broke into a locker. The suspect stole a cell phone, debit cards, driver’s license, Costco card, house keys, vehicle key fob, and glasses, all worth approximately $300. The suspect was described as a heavyset Black female wearing a mask, black shirt, blue jeans, and black and white shoes. This investigation is continuing.
On Thursday, 09-28-23, at approximately 12:30 a.m., an officer was dispatched to Wendy’s on Mission Street on a report of a burglary. A suspect smashed a glass door with a rock and made entry. Once the suspect saw employees inside the restaurant, he exited the store, picked up the rock, and ran southbound onto County Street. Later, at 2:58 a.m., the suspect, a 31-year-old Hayward resident, was arrested and booked into jail for burglary.
On Thursday, 09-28-23, at approximately 2:58 a.m., officers were dispatched to Starbucks on Mission Street on a possible burglary via window break. The suspect exited the rear of the building holding a safe valued at $100. Officers located the suspect hiding in the bushes approximately twenty feet from Starbucks and apprehended him. They also located the safe with its contents rummaged through. The suspect had two rocks in his backpack and glass shards in his pants pocket. This is the same suspect mentioned above who burglarized Wendy’s. The suspect, a 31-year-old Hayward resident, was also arrested and booked into jail for this burglary at Starbucks.
On Friday, 09-29-23, between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m., a suspect broke into a locker at 24 Hour Fitness on Gellert Boulevard and stole a jacket containing car keys and house keys.

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.

There is also a mobile application, or you can have it sent to your e-mail. Give it a try!
