Stabbed in the Hand
A man was stabbed in the hand after a party on the 2000 block of Alvarado Street turned into a fight. Last Friday at 9:43 p.m. a 24-year-old San Leandro man allegedly stabbed at 42-year-old victim after they got in an argument, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the San Leandro police. The victim received a small wound to his right hand after the suspect attacked him with a pocket knife, Brandt said. The suspect tried to run away, but a passerby restrained him until police arrived. The suspect and victim were both treated and released for minor injuries. The suspect was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon.
A burglar was nabbed after a victim fought back last Sunday around 10:48 p.m. The victim found the 20-year-old suspect in his garage on the 100 block of Oakes Boulevard, according to Lt. Jeff Tudor of the San Leandro police. When he was spotted, the suspect tried to flee, but the victim fought him and restrained him until police arrived. Tudor said the police never advise victim’s to fight back and put their safety at risk, but also called the victim “brave.”
A Hayward woman was arrested for possession of a loaded gun just after midnight Tuesday morning. An officer pulled the 26-year-old suspect over for a traffic stop on the 500 block of Lewelling Boulevard and discovered that she had a loaded firearm after she acted suspiciously, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the San Leandro police.
An alert citizen helped cops collar a car thief last week. On Sept. 11, around 11:30 a.m., a man saw a suspicious vehicle pull onto his property on Dutton Avenue, near East 14th Street. The citizen then walked to the police station and reported what he saw, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the San Leandro police. The cops went to the man’s property and found the suspicious driver. It turned out that the car had been reported stolen earlier this month. The driver was arrested and the car was returned to its owner. Brandt said that the incident is a good example of how important it is for citizens to report suspicious activity of any kind.
A man was mugged while walking on the 2200 block of Washington Avenue around 8:30 p.m. on Sunday evening. The victim was approached by two men and one had a knife, according to Lt. Randy Brandt. The victim gave them money and the suspects fled. One suspect is described as a black male, 20 to 30 years old, around 5-foot-11 with a medium build. The victim did not get a good look at the other man.
