Here are some of the incidents that occurred in the Richmond Police District this week:
7/10/15 2:52 PM
ARGUELLO & GOLDEN GATE AVE
A male suspect entered a bike store asking to test ride a bike. The store owner recognized the suspect from the week prior when he had come in to test ride several other bikes. The male suspect left his California ID card and phone number with the store owner and took a bike to test ride. When he didn’t return the owner attempted to contact him, with no luck. When an Officer arrived on scene and looked at the surveillance footage, it appeared as though the suspect wasn’t the same person shown in the ID card’s photo. The suspect and bicycle are still outstanding.
Suspect: White male, 25-35 years old, 5’9’, 160 lbs, blonde hair and goatee.

The suspect jumped into a waiting vehicle, joining three other suspects who had been watching the robbery from the car, and fled eastbound on JFK.

Note: Always scan your surroundings including to your sides and behind you, and keep valuables out of site and under your control.
