A patron called to report that she had seen a male suspect expose himself and masturbate on a train. She and the suspect off-boarded the train at the 12th Street Station and the suspect went to platform #2. Officers detained a male matching the description given. The victim positively identified the suspect as the same man she had seen exposing himself on the train. A records check revealed that the suspect had an indecent exposure CDC warrant for his arrest. The suspect was interviewed before being booked for the warrant and for felony indecent exposure. The male was also issued a prohibition order. Train and station video will be requested.
While at the ticket machines in the free area, a male suspect was unsuccessful in trying to grab money out of a patron’s hand. The suspect later was successful in taking money from another female at the ticket machines after a brief struggle. The description of the suspect matched a person who was familiar to the officers. Approximately an hour later, a station agent reported a person matching the description was at the ticket machines. Officers detained the person, and a warrant check revealed an outstanding $500.00 arrest warrant out of San Francisco for trespassing. The subject was placed under arrest on the warrant. A search of the suspect’s person incident to arrest resulted in the recovery of a crack pipe. While in custody, a witness and victim of the robbery were contacted, returned to the station, and positively identified the suspected as the person who committed the crime earlier in the day. The suspect was also placed under arrest for attempt theft (based on probable cause), robbery, and possession of a crack pipe. A sergeant arrived at the scene to approve the arrest and interview the suspect, who invoked his Miranda Rights. A 30 day BART prohibition order was issued to the suspect.
An Officer saw a female that he knew had a prohibition order excluding her from using BART. The female was also in the transit system without a ticket. The female was clear of warrants and Dispatch confirmed the prohibition order was valid. The female was issued a citation for fare evasion and for violation of the prohibition order. She signed both citations and was released.
