Multiple reports came into BART PD Dispatch via 911 of a male suspect chasing patrons on the platform and throwing things at them. A female victim came forward and stated that she was spat on and scratched on her face by the male suspect. At some point during the incident the male suspect was also pepper sprayed by an unidentified patron on the platform. The male was subsequently contacted on the platform by a BART officer and was physically taken to the ground and taken into custody. Pittsburg PD also responded and assisted with identifying witnesses. The female victim was transported to the hospital for treatment. The male was transported and booked into the Martinez Detention Facility for the battery and issued a prohibition order. The Sergeant responded to conduct the use of force investigation.

A victim reported that their vehicle was burglarized while parked in the lot between 0600-1250 hours. The passenger window was smashed to gain entry and the interior was ransacked.

Officers attempted to escort a male subject/suspect, who appeared intoxicated, from the last revenue train of the evening. The suspect, however, refused to readily comply with the officers as they continued to attempt to reason with him. The suspect eventually stepped out of the train, but then refused to leave the station which was closing for the evening. Shortly thereafter, the officers placed the suspect under arrest for trespassing and public intoxication. While being escorted to a patrol car, however, the suspect became physically resistive and officers used physical force to overcome his resistance. On reaching the patrol car, the suspect further resisted the officers’ efforts to place him in its rear seat, but the officers were able to safely place him in the seat. A short time later, the suspect began kicking one of the car’s rear (caged) windows and managed to slip out of his handcuffs. An assisting officer then arrived with the WRAP restraint device, and a sergeant arrived a short time later. Together, the sergeant and the officers managed to re-handcuff the suspect, but he physically resisted being placed in the WRAP. Police personnel were finally able to safely place the suspect in the restraint, and he was then booked into the county jail for public intoxication, trespassing and resisting arrest. No police personnel were injured. The suspect complained of wrist pain at the jail, where he was provided medical attention. A sergeant responded to perform the use of force investigation.
A train operator conducting end-of-line sweeps was punched several times by a male suspect who refused to get off the train. The suspect fled to the concourse, and was contacted by an officer. The suspect resisted being detained, but was taken into custody after a brief struggle. The train operator was transported to John Muir Hospital for treatment of facial injuries. The suspect was arrested for battery on a transit worker and resisting arrest. He was transported to County Hospital for treatment of minor pre-existing injuries and was booked at the Martinez Detention Facility once he was medically cleared. He was issued a prohibition order prior to booking.
Officers responded to check on the welfare of a subject who was reported to be sleeping inside the paid area of the station. The officers contacted the subject and determined that he was wanted on a no bail warrant for burglary and a $7,500 warrant for possession of narcotics. The suspect was arrested and booked for the warrants.
An officer was dispatched to a report of a male hitting and kicking the train doors. He was contacted on the platform. There was no damage to the train and no one wished to make a complaint, but the male was found to have a $110,000 warrant for forgery. He was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility for the warrant.
An officer performing a welfare check on an adult male discovered (3) outstanding misdemeanor narcotics / theft related warrants, held by BART Police and the San Mateo County Sherriff’s Office, for his arrest; the warrants totaled $11K in bail amount. The male was subsequently arrested for the warrants and booked into the county jail.
An officer attempted to detain a female suspect for an infraction violation in the station, but she refused to submit to the detention by walking away towards the station’s exit. A second officer arrived a short time later and the suspect was detained without incident. A wants/warrants check of the suspect subsequently revealed an outstanding $25K misdemeanor narcotics warrant, held by Pleasanton Police, for her arrest. At this point, the officers placed the suspect under arrest for the warrant and resisting/delaying police; she was then booked into the county jail.
Two female victims, one a juvenile (V1), and the other, the juveniles mother (V2), notified the station agent that they had been battered by the suspect. The suspect, who is the ex-boyfriend of V2, was reportedly involved in an argument with the victims when he punched V1 in the mouth. When V2 attempted to intervene, she was also punched by the suspect. The suspect then fled the area on foot. Responding officers conducted an initial area check, but were unable to locate the suspect. While the victims were inside the station, they looked out through the windows of the station and notified officers that the suspect was walking on the access road approaching the station. As officers converged on the suspect, he fled into a nearby shopping center. Officers set up a perimeter and eventually located the suspect who was hiding in a dumpster behind one of the business in the shopping center. The suspect was detained at gunpoint. A records check of the suspect revealed that he was on probation out of Alameda County. The suspect was booked into the Martinez Jail on the above listed charges. Although the crime had occurred in the City of Pittsburg, the investigation was handled as an outside assist due to the level of involvement of BART PD officers. A Sergeant was on scene to conduct the use of force investigation. The victims declined any medical attention.
