Crime Alert Bulletin Covering the Week of October 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 four robberies during the past week.
On Friday, 10-06-23, at approximately 9:52 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Abbot Avenue on a report of an assault. A suspect had wrestled a $400 key from a postal worker and fled in a black Hyundai Veloster. The postal worker described the suspect as a Hispanic male, 5’10” to 6’0” tall, and 20 to 25 years old. This investigation is continuing.
On Friday, 10-06-23, at approximately 12:45 p.m., an officer was at the Westlake Shopping Center and flagged down by a Target security guard. The security guard stated a suspect selected merchandise and proceeded to the self-checkout. The suspect paid for some items and began to take an unpaid flashlight, razor blade, and luggage, all worth approximately $80. The security guard approached the suspect, and the suspect brandished the razor blade toward the security guard. The security guard stepped away, and the suspect left the store. The security guard described the suspect as a Black male with a beard wearing a gray sweatshirt.
On Saturday, 10-07-23, at approximately 3:24 p.m., officers were dispatched to Nordstrom Rack on a report of a robbery. A loss prevention agent said a suspect entered the store with empty bags, concealed merchandise valued at approximately $140 in one of the empty bags, and exited the store without paying for the merchandise. When loss prevention agents tried to stop the suspect, the suspect bit one of them. The suspect had metal knuckles, fentanyl, and metal foil with straws in his possession. The suspect, a 28-year-old Vacaville resident, was arrested and booked into jail for robbery, possession of brass knuckles, possession of fentanyl, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

On Sunday, 10-08-23, at approximately 3:47 p.m., officers were dispatched to Walgreens on Mission Street on a report of a strong-arm robbery. A suspect entered the store and took 36 boxes of trash bags valued at approximately $320. When the security guard asked the suspect to stop, he said the suspect punched him in the mouth and left the store. A manager said after the suspect left the store, the suspect boarded a bus headed northbound. The manager described the suspect as a heavyset Black male, 5’11” to 6’1” tall, late 50s to early 60s, with gray hair. This investigation is continuing.

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!
