Hayward police blotter, May 22-26

From the Hayward police department:

The Jack In The Box restaurant on Winton Avenue at Clawiter Road was robbed. The suspect was described as a Black Male Adult, 20’s, 5’05, thin, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with the hood over his head, and his face covered by a light colored scarf. The suspect carried a black single strap messenger style bag, and was armed with a black semi-auto handgun. Nobody was injured.

On Parkside Drive a suspect attempted to break into a home by breaking a window in the backyard. The suspect fled when the alarm on the home sounded. An alert neighbor investigated the sounding alarm and saw the suspect run from the yard to a vehicle. The neighbor was able to obtain the license plate of the vehicle. Officers used this information to identify and detain the suspect, who was on probation for burglary, and the witness neighbor identified the suspect. The suspect was arrested for burglary and several related charges.

An informant reported that a woman brandished a knife at him in the downtown area. A Police Sergeant located the woman in the area and attempted to speak to her. The woman did not verbally acknowledge the Sergeant’s presence and attempt to speak with her. She suddenly reached into her purse and attempted to arm herself with a knife that was inside. She was restrained and determined to be a danger to herself or others and therefore detained for a psychiatric evaluation.
