During the last seven-day period, the Police Department handled 546 service events, resulting in 94 investigations.  Following are the last week's highlighted issues and events:
Theft from Vehicle
On September 22 at 9:08 a.m., a resident in the 600 block of Vaquero reported a theft from his vehicle.  The victim had parked his vehicle during the late night, leaving the vehicle unlocked.  The resident returned to his vehicle in the morning and discovered his vehicle had been ransacked and his wallet was missing.  The wallet contained credit cards and cash.  No suspect(s) were seen or heard.
Petty Theft from Commercial Business
On September 22 at 10:47 a.m., a business in the 1500 block of California reported three pressure washers stolen from the property.  The pressure washers were being stored outside the building in the parking lot adjacent to Evergreen.  The equipment was last seen at the close of business.  When they opened in the morning, employees discovered the loss. 
Injury Traffic Collision
On September 22 at 3:36 p.m., a Honda Civic was traveling west on Duarte Road. The driver fell asleep and collided head-on into a pickup truck, which was traveling east.  Both drivers sustained injuries.  The driver of the pickup truck had to be extracted from the vehicle by cutting the driver's door with the "Jaws of Life."  Both drivers were taken to a hospital with moderate injuries.
Missing Person Located
On September 24 at 4:55 p.m., an officer on patrol in the area of Foothill and Canyon observed a vehicle impeding traffic.  The officer stopped the driver.  A check on the license plates returned a hit for a missing person, a 78-year-old female out of Cathedral City, last seen two days prior.  The female appeared disoriented and was brought to the police station.  The woman had no family in the area.  Cathedral City Police Department was contacted and took custody of the woman.
Spousal Battery - Suspect Arrested
On September 25 at 1:00 a.m., officers responded to a family disturbance in the 400 block of Genoa.  When the officers knocked on the door, it was answered by the 14- year-old son, who appeared nervous.  The son directed the officers to his parents' bedroom, where they found the father hiding under the bed.  A subsequent investigation revealed the father had battered his wife.  He was arrested.  When the suspect was placed in the backseat of the patrol vehicle, he began to bang his forehead against the Plexiglas divider.  Officers had to restrict his movement to prevent him from harming himself.  He was then taken to Monrovia Police Department without further incident.  The suspect did not sustain any injuries.
