Man Mugged at Gunpoint
A man in his 20s was walking on Wiliams Street near the I-880 pedestrian overpass Sunday around 10 p.m. when he was mugged at gunpoint.
The man was alone when three other young men approached him from behind. One grabbed him and another pointed a handgun at him, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the SLPD.
The robbers searched his pockets and took his cell phone before fleeing on foot.
The suspects are described as three Hispanic males, 18 or 19 years old, 5-foot-5 to 5-foot 7, with medium builds.
Man Tussles with Cop, Gets Away Half-Cuffed
A Union City man is wanted for battery on a police officer after a traffic stop turned violent last Thursday.
Shortly before 7 p.m., police pulled over a car in the parking lot of the Nimitz Motel at 555 Lewelling Boulevard, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the SLPD.
The driver tried to run away, but an officer caught up to him as he was trying to climb a fence. The driver then shoved the cop against a wall and they both fought.
The suspect’s girlfriend then exited the motel and began yelling at the officer, threatening him, and telling him to let her boyfriend go.
While the officer was in the middle of trying to get handcuffs on the driver, the suspect got free and ran away with one hand cuffed. During the struggle, the suspect also tried to grab the officer’s gun, Brandt added.
The suspect then ran out of the motel parking lot and crossed Lewelling Boulevard and officers lost sight of him. A perimeter was established, but they couldn’t find him after a five hour search.
The driver is still at large, but the girlfriend was arrested for threatening an officer. The cop was uninjured except for minor scrapes and bruises.
Three suspects stole nearly $1,000 worth of toothbrushes and other toiletries from the Safeway at 555 Bancroft Avenue on Sunday at around 4:30 p.m.
The suspects entered the store with pillowcases, filled them up, and left, according to Lt. Randy Brandt of the San Leandro police.
An employee called the cops, who arrived and found the suspects nearby and arrested them.
A home on the 900 block of Douglas Drive was burglarized last Thursday, at around 10 a.m.
The house was locked, but when a homeowner arrived home, he found a bathroom window open, around to Lt. Randy Brandt of the San Leandro police.
Power tools were stolen from the garage.
