[Monrovia Police activities from the Police Department's Neighborhood Watch Report for November 3-5 . - Brad Haugaard]

During the last seven-day period, the Police Department handled 349 service events, resulting in 70 investigations.

Critical Missing – Subject Located 
On November 3 at 1:49 p.m., dispatch received a call reporting that a bipolar female adult with diabetes was missing in Canyon Park. The subject had been walking with her husband and a friend, and had walked ahead of them. They had walked this area many times before and the subject had always waited at a certain place. This time, she took a different turn and may have gotten confused. Officers and Park Rangers responded and began a search of the area. A helicopter and Sierra Madre Search and Rescue were requested, but the missing person was located before they could respond. The subject was found near the dam on the paved road within 40 minutes of the initial report. She was in good condition, just a little confused.

Residential Burglary 
On November 3 at 4:46 p.m., a burglary was reported in the 400 block of North Primrose. The residents left at 8:00 a.m. and returned after 5:00 p.m. When they left, their home was locked and secured. They returned to find a rear window forced open, and the suspects had taken a safe, jewelry and coins. They exited the home through the entry point. It appears they backed into the long driveway near the entrance they used. The victim reported that the safe had no valuables inside.

Hit and Run Traffic Collision – Vehicle vs. Skateboarder 
On November 3 at 5:53, a hit and run traffic collision involving a skateboarder was reported to police. The skateboarder was crossing Foothill at Mayflower on a green light in the proper crossing area, when a vehicle turned left and failed to stop, hitting the skateboarder. The skateboarder went over the hood of the vehicle. The driver of the vehicle did not stop to help the juvenile skateboarder and fled the scene. Paramedics were summoned, but fortunately, the victim was only scraped up and received no serious injuries. The victim was able to remember the license plate of the car, which returned to a Toyota sedan out of the Altadena area. The officer was able to identify the driver and obtain his home address. Night watch officers went to Altadena and located the suspect. He admitted to being at the location, driving the car that hit the child, and driving away. The investigation is continuing.

Robbery 
On November 5 at 9:32 a.m., police responded to the report of a robbery at a business in the 500 block of West Huntington. A male and female entered the business and loaded multiple items of clothing into a mesh bag; they were observed by loss prevention. The male left the store with no items. The female left the store a few minutes later with the bag full of clothes and made no attempt to pay. The male had pulled a vehicle up to the curb and the female started to get in with the bag of stolen merchandise. The loss prevention officer identified himself and attempted to get the bag. The female slammed the door against the loss prevention officer’s arm and the male pulled the vehicle forward, causing the loss prevention officer to fall. The suspects fled the area. The investigation is continuing.
