Peninsula Police Blotter: Neighborhood crime log

A log of daily events from Peninsula police departments.

Redwood City

Cinema slugfest: Following a traffic altercation in front of 557 E. Bayshore Road at 5:45 p.m. Sept. 7, one driver followed the other into the Century 12 Theater, where he claimed he was grabbed and shaken. The assailant then drove off with his companion, but not before the victim recorded the license platenumber.

Suicide: The coroner has determined that a man found dead of a gunshot wound to the head Sept. 8 on a couch on the 400 block of Veterans Boulevard committed suicide.

Belmont

Drunk and disorderly: An inebriated man was arrested for drunkenness and yelling in the parking lot of the Hillside Lodge, 630 El Camino Real at 9:41 p.m. Sept. 11.

School tool theft: Unknown burglars broke into the storage shed of Ralston Middle School, 2675 Ralston Ave., sometime during the Labor Day weekend and stole an undisclosed number of tools.

Millbrae

Jump off roof: A mother on Palm Avenue called police when her misbehaving 10-year-old son threatened to jump off the roof at 4:44 p.m. Sept. 4. Officers determined the boy was not serious about the roof jump, but was just being defiant because his parents were arguing a lot. Family counseling was recommended.

Gimme that wine: A transient became extremely hostile when he was refused an alcohol purchase at the Valero gas station, 491 El Camino Real, at 2:55 p.m. Sept. 4. But because he was only slightly drunk and didn’t get physical, he was simply sent on his way.

San Carlos

Cited for pot: On Sept. 6 at 11:37 p.m., officers contacted and subsequently arrested three local 18- and 19-year-olds for possession of marijuana. All three were cited and released from the scene.

San Mateo

Harassed at TGIF: A male leaving TGI Friday’s, 3100 El Camino Real, reported being harassed by a group of four men at 11:13 p.m. Sept. 2.
