Bayview District Weekend Recap
Lesson Number One: If you are wanted on a no bail arrest warrant for rape in the East Bay, don’t approach an on duty uniformed female San Francisco Police Officer with numerous “amorous advances”. You will go to jail! Details below.
On January 6th at 5:30 pm, a Bayview resident came home to his residence on the 1100 block of Silver Ave and opened his garage door. To his surprise, as he stepped in, he noticed two subjects running out of the garage through the side door. Both subjects ran from Silver toward Mission St. The officers who responded to the burglary call noticed that the side door to the garage appeared to have been left unsecured. Both thieves, in their rush to flee, left their bicycles at the side of the house. These were collected as evidence to be processed for finger prints. The victim stated that nothing appeared to have been stolen from the garage though a complete inventory was still pending. The officers searched the area for the suspects but were unable to locate them that evening. This incident is under investigation. (SFPD Case No. 120015965)

They met with the 30 year old victim who told them that he was seated on the coach while holding his iPhone in his hand. When the bus came to stop, the suspect, who was also on the bus, went to get off and in passing the victim, grabbed the phone in his hand. The victim struggled with the suspect to hold onto the phone, but the suspect threw him to the floor of the coach and punched him several times until he let go.

He was detained and the officers ran a record check that revealed that aside from his probation status, the suspect had an active no bail warrant for probation violation. He was placed under arrest. A search of the suspect revealed that he had a glass smoking pipe with crack cocaine residue in it. This item was seized and the charge was added. The suspect was booked at Bayview Station.

On January 6th at 9:30 pm, plainclothes officers were patrolling in the area of Oakdale and Baldwin Courts. This area is notorious for high violent crime and gang activity and is the turf to the “Oakdale Mob” gang members and their associates. While in the area they observed a vehicle being driven by a suspect that they knew was a documented “Oakdale Mob” member who they knew to be on probation with a search condition. They pulled the vehicle over and
made contact with the suspect and his passenger.
The passenger turned out to be a documented gang member as well as being on Superior Court probation. The conditions of that probation include a 6:00 pm curfew as well as a stay away order from the area he was currently in. The court order also specifically restricts the subject from having any contact or associating in any way with other “Oakdale Mob” members. This subject was in violation of all three of these probation restrictions and was placed under arrest.
The officers responded to the driver’s home on the 1500 block of Revere to conduct a probation search of the home. They got into the apartment with the suspect’s own keys. During the search, they found 36 rounds of ammunition in the suspect’s bedroom along with a loaded gun magazine. They also located photos depicting other “Oakdale Mob” gang members in the same room along with other gang indicia. This suspect was also placed under arrest. Both subjects were booked at Bayview Station for gang related offences. (SFPD Case No. 120016402)

The victim told the officer that all three of the female suspects had already been on the bus when he boarded. He went on to say that as he stood by the rear exit door, one of the suspects approached him and tried to pull his gold chain from his neck. The victim fought back at which point the other two suspects jumped in. One of these suspects pulled a handgun from her waistband and held it out while the others punched and kicked him. The suspects went through the victim’s pockets before all getting off the bus and running east on Silver. The officers obtained suspect descriptions from the victim and witnesses and broadcast the information to units in the area. The victim was treated for his injuries on scene by paramedics.
A unit who was searching for the suspects located a group who matched the broadcast description in the area of Waterville and Thornton. As they drove up, they noticed one of the suspects hiding a jacket under a car parked on the 600 block of Thornton. They detained all the suspects and located the jacket that one of them had tried to conceal. Inside the jacket pocket was a silver .380 handgun. The victim’s cell phone was discovered in another suspects’ pocket. She told the officers that she was only holding on to the phone for a friend.
The officers conducted an identification viewing of the suspects for the victim and several witnesses. All of them positively identified all three suspects as having been involved in the robbery on the bus. All three suspects were placed under arrest. One of the suspects was currently on probation for robbery. All of the suspects were booked on numerous robbery, aggravated assault, conspiracy, and gun related charges. (SFPD Case No. 120016979)
