Last spring, the Alameda Police Department advised the community of a series of strong-armed robberies targeting our elderly community members. One of these robberies included an incident where an elderly Alameda resident was robbed while attempting to enter a business on the 2400 block of Central Avenue. The victim was transported to a local hospital with serious injuries. The victim survived and has continued to assist in the investigation.

After detailed and relentless work from multiple APD officers and sergeants, two suspects were positively identified in connection to the May 13, 2020, heinous daytime robbery. On May 10, 2021, Alameda Police Department’s Violent Crime Unit authorized two arrest warrants. On May 20, 2021, the adult female suspect turned herself in and was booked at a local jail for her involvement in the crime. On June 8, the adult male suspect was arrested by US Marshall’s at his residence. After being taken into custody, the male provided a full confession and was booked into a local jail.

We would like to take a moment to thank the US Marshalls for their assistance and the dedicated APD officers and sergeants who continued to follow up on leads and pursue justice for the victim of this crime.

As we approach the summer months and anticipate the increase in outdoor activities, we would like to provide the community with a few tips on reducing the risk of being victimized and what to do if you are involved in a robbery:

• Stay alert and in tune with your surroundings.
• When possible, consider using online banking services.
• Avoid going to the bank alone or carrying large sums of money.
• Keep valuables out of sight when out and about.
• Utilize well-lit and heavily traveled paths at night.
• If you feel you are being followed, find a safe location and call APD immediately.
• If you become a victim of a robbery, do not resist. Give up your property, not your safety or your life.
• Write down any information you can recall about the suspect’s description, vehicle, or direction of flight. Do not compare notes about suspect or vehicle description with other witnesses.
• Immediately call the police after a robbery occurs, you may be instructed to stay on the phone with a dispatcher until officers arrive at the scene.

Alameda Police make an arrest after a female victim is seen being assaulted on camera.

Early this morning, Alameda PD responded to the report of suspicious circumstances after receiving a call about a female screaming and crying near Webster Street. Upon arrival, officers were told their assistance was not needed. Before leaving the scene, officers reviewed nearby surveillance footage to ensure a crime did not occur. While watching the footage, officers observed a single male physically assaulting and dragging a female through a parking lot into a nearby dwelling shortly before APD's arrival.

Based on the footage, officers believed the individuals were still inside of the residence. Officers returned to the scene to ensure the female’s safety. After answering the door, the female initially stated she was okay. However, based on the video footage and her statement’s being made in the male’s presence, officers wanted to separate the two to obtain their independent accounts of what occurred this morning.

While speaking with the male, officers observed ammunition on a nearby table and asked if there were any weapons present at the time, to which the male assured the officers there were not. After asking the male to stand, the male reached underneath a pillow exposing a concealed firearm. Officers immediately instructed the male to stop his movement and pulled him away from the firearm. The male was taken into custody without incident for kidnapping, battery, and false imprisonment.

Officers provided the female victim with several resources to ensure her safety and long-term care, including emergency shelter assistance and an anti-violence advocate. The officers will periodically follow up with the victim and offer additional support and resources if needed.

Acts of violence are never okay and can impact a person’s physical and mental health. Victims should never be ashamed or feel guilty for being abused. If you, or anyone you know, is a victim of violence, the City and County of Alameda have a variety of resources; including, legal services, shelter, and counseling services available. For information on shelters or crisis counseling in the City of Alameda please call, 866-292-9688. Alameda Family Services can provide counseling services to victims and offenders at 510- 629-6300. If you are in immediate danger, please contact 9-1-1 right away.

Taking steps to combat auto thefts.

In recent months, the Alameda Police Department has received several stolen auto reports from shopping centers, parking lots, and residential neighborhoods. Often stolen cars are seemingly used for transportation and occasionally can be stripped or intentionally damaged. Some of the most commonly stolen vehicles are 90s and early 00s cars, including pickup trucks, larger SUVs, Honda Civics, and Accords.

We are encouraging vehicle owners of any vehicle to take extra precautions in protecting their property.
🚘 Never leave your car unattended while it's running, even if it is to run into your home for just a brief moment.
🔑 Never leave a spare key hidden in your vehicle, the garage, or a discrete outdoor location on your property.
🔐 Always secure your vehicle when it is not in use.
🎒 Remove your valuables from your vehicle.
💡 When possible, park in well-lit and highly-traveled areas.
🔒 Mechanical devices can act as a deterrent to some criminals. Consider using steering wheel or brake locks, especially in older vehicles.
🚨 If your car is not already equipped with one, consider installing a vehicle tracking and/or security system.
✍️ Keep a copy of your license plate and VIN number in your home. If you become the victim of auto theft, you will need this information to have your car entered into the California Stolen Vehicle System.

Taking these precautions does not guarantee that your car will not be stolen, but it can help reduce the chances of becoming a victim. If you believe you are witnessing an in-progress vehicle theft, contact APD right away and provide dispatchers with as much information as possible – location, vehicle description, license plate, direction of flight, and if possible, suspect(s) description.

To help your fellow neighbor, Alameda PD maintains a list of recently reported, and still outstanding, stolen vehicles on our Crime Graphics website, https://alameda.crimegraphics.com/2013/default.aspx. Through this portal, community members can help keep an eye out for recently stolen cars to help in the recovery process. Thank you, Alameda, for continuing to work towards a safer island for all.
