The station agent reported seeing a male suspect running away from a vehicle (silver 2005Honda Accord) after hearing glass breaking and an alarm sounding. Officers responded and confirmed the vehicle’s right rear window had been shattered. The officers also found some traces of blood on the exterior of the vehicle. Eventually, with the assistance of the station agent, officers detained the suspect in a nearby shopping center. During the detention, the suspect was found to be too intoxicated to care for his own safety due to his level of alcohol intoxication, in addition to having a pre-existing superficial wound to his right elbow/arm. A subsequent search of the suspect revealed he was in possession of small porcelain pieces, commonly used to burglarize vehicles; a criminal history check revealed he was on active probation for grand theft. While being interviewed, the suspect admitted breaking the vehicle’s window with his right arm, but denied any further wrongdoing. The officers were unable to substantiate an auto burglary had taken place, but placed the suspect under arrest for public intoxication, possession of burglary tools, vandalism and probation violation. A sergeant responded and approved the arrest. The suspect was then booked into the county jail. The suspect did not require medical attention for his injury, and an attempt was made to contact the vehicle’s registered owner.
An officer responded to the station on the report of a female suspect having battered a male. At the time the officer arrived at the station, the suspect had apparently left aboard a city bus. During this time, the officer was told by the male victim that the suspect, with whom he shares two children, had punched him about the face and then left aboard the bus. While the officer spoke to the victim, the suspect returned to the station and was detained by the officer without incident. The officer determined that the suspect was the primary aggressor in the battery and, based upon their shared relationship, placed her under arrest for domestic violence. A sergeant responded to approve the arrest. The suspect was issued a prohibition order and then booked into the county jail for domestic violence. The victim declined medical attention at the scene, and was not visibly injured.
A station agent saw two male suspects masturbating one another while aboard a station elevator. An officer responded and, on arrival, also witnessed the suspects engaging in the same lewd behavior. The officer managed to detain one of the suspects in handcuffs without incident. The other suspect, however, did not readily comply with the officer’s verbal orders to stop as he attempted to walk away, so the officer used a minimal amount of physical force to stop and handcuff him. At this point, both suspects were placed under arrest for performing a lewd act in public. A sergeant responded to approve the arrest, perform the post arrest interview and conduct the use of force investigation. The suspects were then issued prohibition orders before being booked into the county jail for performing a lewd act in public.
A male and a female couple were standing in the bus zone when they were approached by the suspect who demanded the male victim's phone. The male refused and the suspect, described as a Hispanic male, 5'04", dark hair and wearing a thin black hoodie, punched the victim in the face. When the female screamed, the suspect fled on foot from the station. The suspect did not get the victim's phone. The crime originally occurred at approximately 2109 hours, but was not reported until 2253 hours. The female called to report the crime, as the male victim did not wish to speak with police. The female said she could identify the suspect. The victim was not injured.
