During the last seven day period, the Police Department handled 512 service events, resulting in 117 investigations.  Following are the last week's highlighted issues and events:
Grand Theft from Vehicle
January 6 at 6:51 a.m., an officer was dispatched to the 700 block of Wildrose regarding a vehicle burglary.  The victim reported that his truck was broken into sometime during the night.  The victim had parked his truck in his driveway, but did not lock it.  He returned to it in the morning and discovered the loss.  Investigation continuing.
Outside Assist - Los Angeles Interagency Metropolitan Police Apprehension Crime Task Force (LA IMPACT) - 5 Suspects Arrested 
January 6 at 1:02 p.m., an officer responded to the 800 block of West Duarte to assist LA IMPACT personnel on a residence check.  As they arrived at the residence, a vehicle was exiting the garage.  The vehicle was stopped.  A large amount of marijuana was located in the vehicle.  Five suspects were detained and arrested; one subject ran and was not located.
Vehicle Tampering - Suspects Arrested
January 6 at 7:31 p.m., a witness reported two male juveniles seen checking car doors on several vehicles on Foothill near Shamrock.  Officers responded and the two were stopped and subsequently arrested for vehicle tampering.  The investigation determined no burglaries or thefts had occurred, probably because all the doors were locked.  The two juveniles were later released to their parents with citations.
Attempt Burglary
January 6 at 11:34 p.m., an officer was dispatched to a business in the 700 block of East Huntington. An employee of a business reported that a male subject had just broken the front, glass door to an adjacent business.  When the suspect saw the employee, he left walking west on Huntington.  An officer responded and found the suspect at California and Huntington in a parking lot.  When the suspect saw the police car, he fled through the parking lot.  Containment was set up with the assistance of Arcadia police officers and the El Monte Police Department helicopter; however, the suspect was not located.
Assault with a Deadly Weapon / False Imprisonment - Suspect Arrested
January 7 at 6:59 p.m., officers responded to a residence in the 200 block of West Olive regarding a fight in progress.  When they arrived, a female subject exited the house and ran to the officers.  Her hands had been tied behind her back with a belt and she was screaming for help.  Her mother was with her and the mother's finger had been cut.  The two subjects were at the location visiting an aunt, who lives in the garage, which has been modified into a dwelling space.  An argument had begun with residents in the backhouse as to whether or not they had a right to be there.  The male resident from the backhouse grabbed the daughter by the hair and pulled her into his house, where he tied her up, then wielded a knife and slashed at the mother who was trying to protect her daughter.  The officers arrested the suspect.  An I.C.E. hold was placed on the subject, as he was found to be illegally in the United States.
Driving Under the Influence / Hit and Run Traffic Collision - Suspect Arrested
January 7 at 11:41 p.m., officers responded to the report of a traffic collision at Alamitas, just north of Diamond.  A driver struck a fire hydrant with his vehicle.  There was no damage to the hydrant; however, there was extensive damage to the vehicle.  The driver lost his front bumper as he fled the scene.  He drove around the corner to his home on Montana, followed by a witness.  As he parked in his driveway, officers arrived and saw him enter his home.  He was located hiding in a small cabinet next to the backdoor.  He was positively identified by the witness and was determined by officers to have been driving under the influence.  He was arrested and taken into custody.
Domestic Battery - Suspect Arrested
January 8 at 11:02 a.m., officers responded to a residence in the 700 block of West Walnut.  They arrived and determined a husband and wife had been arguing about an incident that occurred over a year ago, but the husband's mother had just found out about.  The husband slapped the wife once in the face.  He was arrested for misdemeanor spousal battery and later released on citation.
Assault with a Deadly Weapon / Conspiracy to Commit a Crime / Participation in Criminal Street Gang / Violation of Gang Injunction - Suspects Arrested
January 8 at 8:02 p.m., an officer responded to a residence in the 100 block of Montana regarding several victims being attacked by gang members.  The victims alleged they were standing in the carport area of the location when a black SUV approached and four gang members exited the vehicle.  One of the gang members was armed with a machete and another was holding a handgun.  The gang members chased the victims for a short distance, but returned to the SUV without further incident.  No shots were fired and no one was injured.
Approximately 30 minutes later, an officer located the SUV at Peck and Longden.  One of the suspects fled on foot through residential yards.  The Foothill Air Support helicopter arrived and directed officers to the suspect, and he was taken into custody.  The suspect is a juvenile gang member who had a no-bail warrant out for his arrest.  During the foot pursuit, a high-risk stop was conducted on the SUV.  Three additional suspects were detained.  The victims positively identify the suspects and their vehicle.  The weapons were not recovered.
Parole Violation / Possession of Methamphetamine Pipe / Possession of Marijuana - Suspect Arrested
January 9 at 2.55 a.m., an officer stopped a suspicious person parked behind a business at Pomona and Myrtle. Upon contacting the subject, a subsequent investigation revealed he was on parole for arson.  The officer found a glass methamphetamine pipe, marijuana, a folding knife, and a laptop computer that is believed to be stolen.  The subject was arrested and a parole hold was obtained.
Vehicle Burglary
January 11 at 5:52 a.m., two male suspects wearing dark clothing and black beanies were seen smashing the window on a vehicle.  The suspects were seen removing a GPS from the vehicle.  They fled and were last seen getting into an older Honda with a roof rack.  The incident is under investigation.
January 12 at 11:06 p.m., a robbery was reported at a business in the 500 block of West Huntington in the parking lot.  A female employee had just ended her shift and was walking to her car.  An older, grey, 4-door Honda Civic with tinted windows approached her.  The vehicle was occupied by two male subjects, possibly gang members.  The passenger exited the vehicle and approached the victim with a knife in one hand and a small black club in the other.  When he demanded the victim's money, she told him she did not have any.  He then demanded her cell phone, which she gave to the suspect.  The suspects fled southbound on Mayflower.  Investigation continuing.
