Bayshore Boulevard and Arleta Avenue
11:45 p.m. Saturday
A man allegedly trying to steal beer from a 7-Eleven fled when police arrived, dropping the booze and his cellphone. The forgiving clerk decided not to press charges since he got his beer back. But the suspect was still arrested on an outstanding warrant.
Campbell Avenue and Rutland Street
1 a.m. Saturday
A masked crook attacked a woman after she parked in her driveway. He shoved her to the ground as she ran and yelled for help, then fled with her purse.
Arlington and Bosworth streets
9:35 p.m. Saturday
Illegally parking is especially not a good idea if you have a warrant for your arrest. Two cops who spotted a car parked in front of a fire hydrant ended up arresting one of its occupants.
Rotteck and Bosworth streets
2:20 a.m. Saturday
A woman heard a knock on her window, pulled back the curtain and saw an enraged man outside demanding to see a person who no longer lived in the home. He punched a window, shattering it, then hurled a planter box at the woman’s car, shattering a window.
