Manhunt ends at Daly City mall

A manhunt  stemming from a Daly City burglary Wednesday ended at the Serramonte Shopping Center, police said.

Dashawn Simmons, 21, of Oakland, and Clarence Stimpson, 22, of San Leandro, were arrested in connection with a burglary of a home in the 600 block of Skyline Drive.

Residents told cops the suspects had broken a window and entered the home around 10:30 a.m.

Responding officers detained Simmons at the scene, but say Stimpson fled across a rooftop, crossed Skyline Boulevard, then eluded police by scampering through backyards on Higate Drive.

Around 1:20 p.m., a resident reported that a man “appearing to be disoriented” boarded a SamTrans bus in the area, police said. Cops caught up with the bus, but by then the suspect had hopped off.

Police figured he must have escaped into the Serramonte Shopping Center, a stop along the bus route, and so they alerted mall security.

A security officer reported seeing a person discard dirty clothing and then change into new clothes, police said.

The suspect was detained at the mall, where he violently resisted arrest, and was found with stolen items from the burglarized residence, police said.

Simmons and Stimpson were booked into the San Mateo County jail on charges of conspiracy, residential burglary and parole violations.

Stimpson was additionally charged with resisting arrest.
