Peninsula Police Blotter: Neighborhood crime log

These are excerpts from Peninsula police departments’ daily log of activities. Incidents are listed by police precincts and the neighborhoods they patrol.

Redwood City

Reliving past: A manager reported that a person was lying in the parking lot at 12:05 a.m. Jan. 8 on the 1400 block of Broadway. Medics were called, and transported the subject to a nearby hospital emergency room where he woke up and told the nurse that a transient, reportedly named Lawrence, hit him in the head with a baseball bat, near a bridge. The subject does not want to press charges. The incident occurred at the foot bridge at Stambaugh and Spruce. Officers learned that the suspect is not named Lawrence, but rather Jim Rice.

Daly City

Alleged assault: An alleged strong-arm robbery was reported at 3 p.m. Jan. 1 on the 600 block of Sylvan by a woman who said she was kicked and her purse — a black Coach shoulder bag with a black wallet and credit cards, plus $300 in cash — was grabbed by one of two suspects. The woman believed she was raped due to losing consciousness. There were no physical signs of trauma, and the victim did not requesta sexual assault examination at Chope Hospital.

South City

Needs a shave: A man wearing a brown hat and black sweatshirt walked into a Southwood Barber Shop on El Camino Real at 9:07 a.m. Jan. 5 and wanted a free haircut since he just got out of prison. He stood 5 feet 10 inches tall and appeared to be around 21 years old. When the owner refused, the man took off his shirt as if he were threatening to fight the reporting party. He was gone when police arrived.

Millbrae

Pot break: A caller reported at 10 p.m. Jan. 10 from 540 Broadway, seeing four people loitering in the Starbucks parking lot; one was allegedly a Starbucks employee. The previous week, the employee was contacted for possession of marijuana. Three of the four in the group were found to be in possession, cited and released from station. The fourth subject was not in possession.
