Deputies responded to a battery report in the 900 block of Foothill Boulevard on Aug. 17 at 10 a.m. The victim, his wife and infant daughter were waiting in front of a business until they opened, when a female walked to the front of the store bypassing the line of customers waiting. The victim then pushed the stroller that had his infant daughter in closer to the front door to prevent the suspect from being the first person in the store. While the victim was shopping with his family, the suspect walked up to him and started to talk to him. The victim was concerned about his daughter’s safety, so he and his wife started recording the suspect. The suspect then tried to grab the victim’s cell phone, but failed and left the store.

Deputies responded to a vehicle burglary in the 800 block of Town Center Drive on Aug. 17 between 5 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. The victim was at the gym and locked her vehicle which she parked on Town Center Drive. When she returned to her vehicle, she discovered the passenger side window was smashed. Upon inspection, she noticed that multiple credit cards were stolen, along with her driver’s license, permanent resident car, Germany identification card, a handbag, wallet and money.

A grand theft was reported in the 900 block of Town Center Drive on Aug. 17 at 12:02 p.m. The victim said he arrived at the business and placed his purple Aventon Level 2 electric bicycle, which had his yellow bike helmet, and his two black Pannetier bags attached to the bicycle, by the north corner of the entrance, near the ramp leading to the parking lot. He had a phone charging battery pack inside of the left Pannetier bag. The victim said that he secured the bike by placing a bike chain through the spokes of both tires to prevent the bicycle from being driven away. After going into the business to get some water, he noticed that his electric bicycle was gone and believed that someone had taken it. He notified the business and tried to look for his bike but was unable to find it. After deputies obtained surveillance footage, they found that the footage showed a man making several passes by the bicycle, until he finally took it and carried it away.

When she retrieved her purse prior to leaving, she noticed the weight of it to be lighter than before. She then discovered that her wallet was missing, which contained various credit and debit cards, her driver’s license and banknotes. She then received text messages regarding fraudulent activity associated with her credit and debit cards and froze her cards and did not suffer any financial loss.
