A log of daily events from Peninsula police departments.

San Mateo

Hard to spot: Three juveniles wearing jeans, Timberland boots, lip piercings and carrying big handbags stole merchandise from a store at 200 Hillsdale Mall at 12:48 p.m. Dec. 11. The caller stated that one of the thieves had red streaks in her hair.

Clean your safe?: A caller reported that a person with his hair tied back and wearing a red scarf in his back pocket and sloppy in appearance was ringing doorbells and asking to clean houses at 3:30 p.m. Dec. 11 on the 2000 block of Sullivan Street.

San Carlos

Backbreaker: Police, fire and ambulance personnel responded to the 700 block of Laurel Street on a report of a pedestrian that had been struck by a car at 5:33 p.m. Dec. 6. The downtown street was closed down for approximately 40 minutes. The pedestrian, a 47-year-old San Carlos woman, was crossing the street when she was struck by a 1999 Volkswagen Cabriolet traveling southbound. The woman was transported to the hospital for complaint of back pain. The driver of the Volkswagen was not injured, and the car was not damaged.
