Daly City

Unattended envelope: A woman called at 8:55 a.m. Feb. 1 from a lobby on the 500 block of Clarinada Avenue to report the theft of her purse. She left her purse and moving boxes in the lobby to go lock her car, and when she returned, an envelope containing $1,000 in cash, $12,450 in jewelry and a pawn ticket was missing from her purse. She saw a 30- to 40-year-old man wearing a black jacket and blue jeans exiting the lobby.

Grocery-list grab: At 11:51 a.m. Feb. 2, a caller reported that her garage-door opener and a grocery shopping list were taken from a car stall on 1500 block of Southgate Avenue. The garage-door opener only opens her garage door, not the apartment complex’s door or gate. Nothing was tampered with.

Family Affair: A mother reported that she and her son were assaulted and battered at 8:10 p.m. Feb. 5 at 100 Skyline Plaza. A suspect hit the son’s head on the concrete pavement several times and told him he was going to kill him during the altercation. The mother intervened and was pushed by the suspect. The son had a bump to his forehead, a black eye, and scrapes to his right elbow and a possible laceration to a knee. He refused to cooperate with the police. The investigation is ongoing.
