19-Year-Old Man Suspected Of Assaulting Roommate At SCU Arrested

A Santa Clara University student suspected of assaulting his roommate early Tuesday morning was arrested, police said.

Officers responded to a report of an assault at the campus located at 500 El Camino Real in Santa Clara around 3:30 a.m.

Arriving officers found out that the suspect, 19-year-old Dillon Kim, allegedly assaulted the victim with a knife at their on-campus housing unit, police said.

The victim was transported to a hospital to be treated for multiple lacerations that included a stab wound and is expected to recover, according to police.

Kim was also taken to a hospital for self-inflicted injuries and was later booked into county jail, police said.

He is scheduled to be arraigned in Santa Clara County Superior Court on Thursday, according to jail records.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call Sgt. Derek Rush at (408) 615-4814.

In a statement released Tuesday evening, university officials said they are cooperating with the police investigation.

“The health and welfare of our students is of paramount concern to the University, and we are doing all we can to assist the affected families,” according to the statement.

Students or their families with any questions or concerns surrounding the assault were advised by school officials to seek assistance with the college’s Office of Student Life, Office of Residence Life, Campus Ministry, Campus Safety Services and counseling center.

Fugitive For 4 Years In Human Trafficking Investigation Turns Herself In

A suspect in a sex trafficking ring in four Bay Area counties who has been a fugitive for four years turned herself in to authorities Tuesday morning, Hayward police said.

The investigation began with Hayward police looking into the activities of a downtown Hayward residence operating as brothel in 2010 after receiving complaints from neighbors.

Hayward police eventually concluded the suspects operating that brothel were involved in a widespread prostitution ring operating throughout the Bay Area involving women forced to work as prostitutes, possibly victims of human trafficking.

After a yearlong undercover investigation, on Jan. 20, 2011, search and arrest warrants were served at 10 locations in Alameda, Contra Costa and Santa Clara counties as well as San Francisco.

Investigators said women were trafficked from China and Taiwan to work in the various brothels.

Ten women were rescued and provided with support services. Ten suspects were charged with various crimes including conspiracy, pimping, pandering and human trafficking.

However, one suspect, Wen Yen Gold, eluded capture and has been a fugitive since, police said.

Gold turned herself in to authorities Tuesday morning and is facing charges of operating a house of prostitution. Gold has a court date scheduled for Thursday and her attorney is working on a plea agreement, according to police.

Hearing Set In Felony Case Of 49ers Player Chris Culliver In Collision With Bicyclist

A hearing is set for today in the case of San Francisco 49ers cornerback Christopher Culliver, charged with felony possession of brass knuckles and two misdemeanors in a collision with a bicyclist in San Jose last March.

The hearing in Santa Clara County Superior Court will be about setting a date for a preliminary hearing into the criminal charges filed against Culliver last April 4, according to the court clerk’s office.

Last April 11, Judge Shelyna Brown granted a request by Culliver’s attorney Josh Bentley to not have to appear in future hearings on the charges and it is not clear if Culliver will be in court today.

San Jose police arrested the 26-year-old Culliver back on March 28 in a hit-and-run collision involving Culliver’s white Ford Mustang with a man a riding a bicycle near Tully Road and South Seventh Street.

Culliver, prior to the accident, was driving recklessly in the westbound lane of Tully Road before striking a bicyclist who was crossing the intersection at South Seventh Street, police said.

Witnesses who were in their cars at the time of the collision told police they pursued Culliver as he tried to drive away, heading on Tully Road toward Senter Road.

They then followed his vehicle to the area of Mekler Drive and Senter Road, where Culliver allegedly struck a witness’s vehicle while trying to escape, but the drivers boxed him in until police arrived.

Officers recovered brass knuckles, a hand-held weapon that is a felony to possess in California, from inside Culliver’s car.

Police further learned that Culliver had been driving with a suspended license.

He was arrested on suspicion of felony hit-and-run, felony reckless driving with injury, felony possession of brass knuckles, misdemeanor hit-and-run and misdemeanor driving on a suspended license.

However, the district attorney’s office ultimately charged him only with felony possession of the brass knuckles and two misdemeanor counts of failing to stop at the scene of an accident, according to court records.

Signed by the 49ers in 2011, Culliver’s contract was set to end with the 2014 season and then he would become a free agent as of this year.

Culliver’s lawyer Josh Bentley could not be reached. Bob Lange, a spokesman for the 49ers, also could not be reached.

Man Survives Gun Shot Wound To The Head During Armed Robbery

A man survived a gunshot wound to the head Tuesday morning during an armed robbery in Salinas, according to police.

The robbery was reported at 8:13 a.m. in the first block of Williams Road at a building that houses two businesses, a gas station and a taqueria.

The suspect entered the businesses and robbed the gas station clerk before turning his attention to the taqueria clerk, who was preparing food at the time. Police said that when the clerk was unable to open the cash register, the suspect fired one round at him, striking the clerk in the top of the head.

The victim survived and was treated at a hospital for injuries that were not considered life-threatening, police said.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his late 20s with a chrome-colored gun and a bandana over his face. He was last seen wearing a black hooded jacket and blue jeans, police said.

He might be injured and limping, since a witness to the robbery may have chased the suspect down and struck him with a vehicle, according to police.

The Salinas Police Department is asking anyone with information about the case to contact Officer Jacky Bohn at (831) 758-7161 or (831) 775-4201, ext 6405.

Prosecutor Says Suspects Killed Girl In Act Of Street Justice

A prosecutor said Tuesday that two men should be convicted of murder for the shooting death of a 15-year-old Oakland girl in a barrage of bullets in what he alleged was an act of street justice in broad daylight that went wrong.

Prosecutor Glenn Kim said Jubrille Jordan was an innocent victim who was killed by careless crossfire on Dec. 30, 2012, when Lilron Jones, Vijay Bhushan and Marquise Thompson were gunning for a 14-year-old boy who they thought had killed their 15-year-old friend Hadari Askari five months earlier.

The 14-year-old boy was shot in his leg and survived the shooting but Jubrille, who attended Melrose School, was hit in the head and killed by one of the 20 bullets that were fired in the incident in the 6600 block of Lion Way in East Oakland, near the Lion Creek Crossings apartment complex, at about 3:40 p.m. that day, Kim said.

Referring to Jones, 19, Bhushan, 22, and Thompson, 25, Kim said, “They don’t care who is in the crossfire, in the kill zone, they just want the boy (the 14-year-old) dead.”

Kim’s comments about Jubrille’s shooting death came in his opening statement in the trial of Bhushan and Jones. Thompson is scheduled to be prosecuted separately in a trial next month.

The prosecutor said the three men were close to Hadari, who wanted to become an Oakland firefighter and was in a summer work program with the Oakland Fire Department but was fatally shot in the 6700 block of Leona Creek Drive at about 8 p.m. on July 10, 2012.

The word on the street was that the 14-year-old boy had killed Hadari but he hadn’t been seen much in public until a friend of Jones, Bhushan and Thompson spotted him at the 69th Avenue Village housing project in East Oakland on Dec. 30, 2012, Kim said.

Jubrille, her sister and several close girlfriends walked through the 69th Avenue Village on Dec. 30, 2012, on their way to the Coliseum BART station to take a train to go to the Bayfair Center shopping mall in San Leandro to buy clothes, Kim said.

The girls stopped to talk to a boy who one of them knew but the boy was with the 14-year-old boy and the suspects opened fire, he said.

The prosecutor alleged that Jones and Thompson were the shooters in the incident but he said Bhushan is equally guilty because he gave Thompson the gun that he used and the gun that he believes Jones used was later found at Bhushan’s house.

But Bhushan’s lawyer, Ernie Castillo, told jurors that Bhushan should be found not guilty because he made a decision not to participate in the shooting.

Defendant Pleads Not Guilty To Assaulting Newspaper Carrier And Pregnant Woman

A Santa Rosa man pleaded not guilty in Sonoma County Superior Court on Tuesday afternoon to assaulting a newspaper carrier and the pregnant girlfriend of his alleged accomplice in the assault.

Rodeo Vanbladel, 38, and Matthew Mills, 28, of Santa Rosa, are charged with assaulting the newspaper carrier Jimmy Troconis, 38, of Rohnert Park, in west Santa Rosa on Feb. 10.

Santa Rosa police said the two men assaulted Troconis and vandalized his gray Honda minivan with pipes or sticks because they believed the van was involved in recent thefts in the area of Baggett and Senna drives.

Troconis fled but when he crashed into a parked car, Vanbladel and Mills confronted him again, Santa Rosa police Sgt. Brad Conners said. Troconis was able to escape and called police.

Both men were arrested but Vanbladel posted bail and was released. Mills remained in custody.

On Feb. 11, Vanbladel and Mills’ pregnant girlfriend, 28-year-old
Santa Rosa resident Teresa Dempsey, visited Mills in jail, Santa Rosa police said.

After the visit as Dempsey drove Vanbladel’s truck home, Vanbladel became agitated and angry at Dempsey because he couldn’t find his cellphone, police said.

When Dempsey pulled the truck over at Stony Point Road and West Ninth Street in Santa Rosa, Vanbladel got out of the truck, pulled Dempsey out of the driver’s seat and onto the ground where he kicked her at least twice in the abdomen, police Sgt. Lisa Banayat said.

Vanbladel drove away and Dempsey walked home, Banayat said. She called police when she saw Vanbladel’s truck near her home and police arrested Vanbladel for assault around 11:30 p.m., Banayat said.

Mills was scheduled to enter a plea Tuesday, but Deputy Public Defender Emma Dewald said he was in a hospital.

A preliminary hearing for both defendants was set for Feb. 27.

Elderly Man Who Requires Daily Medication Missing Since Last Week

An elderly at-risk man who needs to take medicine everyday has been missing since last week in San Francisco, police said Tuesday.

Richard Smart, Jr., 78, was last seen on Feb. 11 in the city’s Bayview District, San Francisco police Officer Grace Gatpandan said.

He is not familiar with the city, Gatpandan said.

Smart is described as a black man standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall and roughly 180 pounds with brown eyes, white and gray hair and one gold front tooth, she said.

He was last seen wearing a brown checkered shirt, black leather jacket, black jeans, white shoes and a baseball cap with a “SF” logo, according to Gatpandan.

Anyone with information on Smart’s whereabouts is asked to call San Francisco police at (415) 553-1071. Anonymous tips can be made by calling (415) 575-4444 or sending a text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the start of the message.

8-Year Veteran Officer Shoots Allegedly Knife-Wielding Suspect Friday

An Oakland police officer who shot and wounded an allegedly knife-wielding man in East Oakland on Friday morning is an eight-year veteran of the department, police said Tuesday.

The officer was training a new recruit while on patrol in the area of 88th Avenue and E Street that morning. At 9:42 a.m., a mother flagged them down and said her adult son was acting erratically and armed with a knife, police said.

Her son, a 29-year-old Oakland resident, had talked about committing suicide by forcing police officers to shoot him, police said.

Officers got out of their patrol car and found the man armed. They ordered him to drop the knife but he refused and lunged at his mother and one of the officers, police said.

The veteran officer fired at the man, wounding him. He was taken to a hospital where he was listed in critical but stable condition, police said.

Neither officer was injured.

The officers were wearing body cameras, per department policy, and both were activated when the man was shot, according to police.

The shooting is being investigated by the Oakland police Homicide Section and the Internal Affairs Division. Anyone with information has been asked to call the Homicide Section at (510) 238-3821 or the Internal Affairs Division at (510) 238-3161.

Man Arrested On Suspicion Of Murder For Death During Burglary

A 49-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder for the death of another man during a burglary at the Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward early Friday morning, police said Tuesday.

Tyler Richard Johnston, of Hayward, is currently being held without bail at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin for a probation violation but police said they believe he’s responsible for the death of 42-year-old Martin “Marty” Thorton at the chiropractic college, which is located at 25001 Industrial Blvd.

Johnston is also being held on suspicion of burglary.

Officers who responded to a report of a possible burglary at the college found some damage to a window that was apparently caused by a nearby U-Haul truck and a man, later identified as Thorton, lying on the ground unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at the scene and police classified his death as a homicide.

Sgt. Ryan Cantrell said investigators developed information that Thorton was in the process of burglarizing the college at the time of his death.

An autopsy conducted Tuesday disclosed that Thorton died from major blunt force trauma, Cantrell said.

Johnston was arrested in Hayward on Saturday, according to police.

Cantrell said police plan to present their case against Johnston later this week to the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office so it can consider filing murder and burglary charges against him.

He said there’s no rush to charge Johnston because he’s being held on his alleged probation violation.

Investigators determined that neither Thorton nor Johnston had any ties to the college, according to Cantrell.

He said police would not disclose what they think happened in the incident at the college until charges are filed against Johnston.

Cantrell said the investigation is still ongoing and anyone with information about the incident should call Inspector Rob Lampkin at (510) 293-7034.

Bay Area Groups Expect Ruling Blocking Immigration Actions To Be Overturned

Representatives of two Bay Area immigrants’ rights groups said Tuesday they expect an order by a federal judge in Texas blocking presidential executive actions on immigration to be overturned.

“Our message to the community is that this is a temporary obstacle and we are very confident we will be able to overcome it,” said Vanessa Sandoval of the Services, Immigrant Rights and Education Network, known as SIREN, in San Jose.

Sandoval is director of the group’s immigrant legal services.

Executive Director Reshma Shamasunder of the California Immigrant Policy Center in Oakland said, “We have every confidence the higher courts will overturn this decision.

The temporary injunction was issued Monday by U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen of Brownsville, Texas, in a lawsuit filed by Texas and 25 other states to challenge executive actions on immigration announced by President Obama last year.

Unless overturned on appeal, the order would be in effect until a trial or further court order on the lawsuit and would block two actions protecting certain groups of immigrants from deportation.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest announced Tuesday that the Justice Department will appeal. The appeal would go to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.

While that appeal is pending, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is halting plans to implement the two programs, said Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

One of the two actions blocked by Hanen would expand an existing program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, which postpones deportation for undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children.

The Homeland Security Department had been due to start accepting applications since last Wednesday for the expanded program, which Sandoval said would apply to an estimated 270,000 people nationwide.

The existing DACA program applies to people who are younger than 31 years old as of June 15, 2012 and arrived in the United States before June 2007. About 636,000 people have received deferred deportation and a renewable two-year work permit under that program, according to Hanen’s ruling.

The now-blocked expansion would lift the age requirement, apply to people who arrived before 2010 and defer deportation for three rather than two years at a time.

The second program blocked by Hanen is known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, or DAPA, and was due to begin in May. It would provide deportation protections for an estimated several million people who have lived in the United States for at least five years and are parents of citizens or legal residents.

The judge said the Obama administration failed to follow the requirements of the federal Administrative Procedure Act in setting the new policies.

Port Contract Talks Resume With Help From U.S. Labor Secretary

Contract talks between unionized dockworkers and their employers at 29 West Coast ports, including those in the Bay Area, resumed in San Francisco on Tuesday with the assistance of U.S. Secretary of Labor Tom Perez, according to a Port of Oakland spokesman.

Mike Zampa of the Port of Oakland said port officials are “pleased” that President Obama’s administration is now involved in the talks, which have dragged on for nine months.

The previous contract for the 20,000 dockworkers represented by the International Longshore and Warehouse Union expired on July 1.

A federal mediator was already involved in the contract talks.

White House deputy press secretary Eric Schultz said in an email that President Obama directed Perez to meet with the parties to urge them to resolve their dispute quickly.

The Pacific Maritime Association, which represents shipping companies that operate at West Coast ports, suspended cargo operations at the ports over the long Presidents Day weekend, saying it didn’t want to pay higher holiday and weekend wages to workers while a slowdown is happening.

The PMA also suspended some operations at the ports the previous weekend.

Zampa said cargo operations, which involve loading and unloading container ships, resumed at the Port of Oakland on Tuesday.

He said currently 11 ships are at berths at the Port of Oakland and another 19 ships are waiting for berths to open up there.

Zampa said there was “a full complement” of workers at the port on

A federal mediator who’s been involved in the contract negotiations recently ordered a media blackout barring the two sides from talking to reporters.

Before the blackout was imposed, ILWU spokesman Craig Merrilees said the shipping companies’ allegation that there is a worker slowdown is exaggerated.

Merrilees said productivity has been good at the Port of Oakland and safety concerns at some Southern California ports have led employers to complain the union has been uncooperative.

The PMA said before the news blackout that it is offering dockworkers a 14 percent pay increase over its proposed five-year contract.

The contract talks have been rotating on a weekly basis from the PMA headquarters at 555 Market St. in San Francisco to the ILWU’s office at 1188 Franklin St. in San Francisco.

Man Arrested In 2009 Alleged Gang-Related Homicide Pleads Not Guilty

A suspected gang member who has been charged with fatally shooting a man in San Francisco’s Western Addition neighborhood in 2009 entered a not guilty plea in court Tuesday.

Jonathan Quintay Brown, 29, entered the plea Tuesday morning for the killing of 40-year-old San Francisco resident Myron Edwards, who was shot in broad daylight on Feb. 7, 2009, according to the San Francisco medical examiner’s office.

The day of the shooting, police heard gunshots and witnessed Edwards getting shot at the intersection of Eddy and Laguna streets. Edwards was found lying in the street and later died at San Francisco General Hospital, police said.

Police believe the murder may have been a tragic case of mistaken retaliation, since Edwards filed a burglary report with police just days before the shooting.

Among the items stolen from Edwards’ home was a puppy, which later turned up at a residence being searched by the San Francisco Police Department’s gang task force, police said.

The same day the gang task force served the search warrant, Edwards was beaten up by a group of suspected gang members. Police said the warranted search might have mistakenly caused the suspected gang members to believe Edwards had tipped off police.

However, police said the search warrant had been issued before Edwards’ police report and that Edwards had nothing to do with the search warrant being conducted by the gang task force and didn’t know his dog was at the residence.

Brown, a suspected gang member, was arrested three days after the homicide when he arrived to check in at his parole office, according to police.

According to San Francisco Public Defender’s Office spokeswoman Tamara Barak Aparton, Brown was initially arrested in connection with Edwards’ murder, but then was released.

Aparton said Brown was again arrested on Feb. 5 in connection with the homicide of Edwards while he was serving a sentence in state prison in Vacaville for an unrelated crime.

According to San Francisco District Attorney’s Office spokesman Max Szabo, Brown was charged with murder with gang and firearm-related enhancements. He was also charged with criminal threats.

Brown is being held in lieu of $5 million bail.

Kensington Police Chief Ousted Amid Controversy

Amid controversy over the handling of an investigation into a police sergeant’s misconduct last year, the Kensington Town Board voted Monday night not to extend its contract with its police chief, the board announced Tuesday.

The board decided during a closed session meeting not to extend the contract for police Chief Greg Harman, who also acts as the small community’s general manager, past May 31. His employment with Kensington will end June 1.

Harman recently came under fire for his handling of an investigation into allegations of inappropriate conduct by Sgt. Keith Barrow. Harman allowed Barrow to continue working with the department for months after learning of the allegations.

The incident was first reported to Harman last May, but Barrow remained on the force while the chief looked into it. Barrow was handed down an unspecified discipline in January, according to a board press release issued last week.

During Monday’s meeting, the board also considered new allegations against Barrow stemming from his involvement in a West Contra Costa Narcotics Enforcement Team raid of a Mill Valley store in 2011.

A federal civil rights complaint filed last September alleges the team did not have sufficient evidence for the raid, which cost the plaintiff, David McDonald, his business. He also alleges he was mistreated while in custody.

Tensions between citizens and police have been rising for years in the small affluent community near the Berkeley hills, according to Kensington resident and retired English professor Jim Hausken, who unsuccessfully ran for the board in 2012.

94-Year-Old Orinda Man Killed In Crash

A 94-year-old Orinda man was killed in a solo-vehicle crash near the San Pablo Reservoir on Tuesday afternoon, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported at 1:39 p.m., after a gray Cadillac XTS crashed into a tree in the 500 block of Old San Pablo Dam Road northwest of Orinda in unincorporated Contra Costa County.

CHP Officer John Fransen said the Cadillac was traveling south when the driver drifted off of the roadway for reasons yet to be determined.

“He was 94 years old, so the coroner is going to have to make the determination if there were medical causes that contributed to this,” Fransen said.

The victim’s identity is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Two Men Who Died When Canoe Capsized In Bay Identified

Two men who died after their canoe capsized off of Coyote Point in San Mateo on Monday have been identified by the San Mateo County coroner as 49-year-old Guillermo Ruvalcaba-Sandoval and 22-year-old Luis Ruvalcaba.

Both victims resided in Daly City, Coroner Robert Foucrault said.

At about 10:20 p.m. Monday, U.S. Coast Guard crews received a report from South San Francisco fire officials that three people departed from Oyster Point in South San Francisco to fish in a 12-foot orange canoe, but did not return as expected, Coast Guard officials said.

After finding the trio’s vehicle still in the parking lot at Oyster Point Marina, Coast Guard boat and helicopter crews began searching the Bay, as did a South San Francisco boat crew, according to the Coast Guard.

At 1:20 a.m. Tuesday, the South San Francisco crew heard a cry for help about a mile off of Coyote Point and found a 22-year-old woman, who was pulled from the water. She was taken to a hospital and was conscious and responsive, Coast Guard officials said.

At 1:53 a.m., Coast Guard crews found in the water a second person, the 49-year-old man later identified as Ruvalcaba-Sandoval, who was unconscious and unresponsive and was taken to Mills-Peninsula Hospital in Burlingame.

The overnight search continued into the morning, when the Coast Guard helicopter crew found a third person in the water south of Coyote Point at about 8:50 a.m.

The person, later identified as 22-year-old Ruvalcaba, matched the description of the third person who was in the canoe, Coast Guard officials said.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the individuals involved in last night’s tragedy,” Coast Guard Capt. Greg Stump said in a statement Tuesday.

“The outpouring of assistance from both the local response agencies and the public who searched the shoreline at first light is a testament to the spirit of the local community members and public agencies,” Stump said.

Man Robs Wells Fargo Bank This Morning

Marin County sheriff’s officials said a man robbed the Wells Fargo Bank in the Strawberry Village Shopping Center on Tuesday morning.

The robbery happened around 11:15 a.m. at the shopping center in the unincorporated area of Strawberry.

Barn Storing Nearly A Dozen Vehicles Severely Damaged In Fire

A barn housing nearly a dozen vehicles sustained significant damage in a fire Tuesday night in Napa County, a Cal Fire spokesman said.

Fire crews responded to a report of a structure fire in the 4000 block of Old Sonoma Road west of state Highway 29 around 8 p.m., Cal Fire Capt. Joe Fletcher said.

The roughly 4,000-square-foot barn stored five all-terrain vehicles, a forklift, two tractors, a pick-up truck and two cars, Fletcher said.

A transformer was also damaged in the fire, he said.

The one-story barn is on a vineyard and located about a half-mile away from the road, Fletcher said.

The blaze was contained at about 9 p.m. and did not spread to the vineyard or wildland, according to Fletcher.

No one was inside the structure during the blaze, according to Fletcher.

Fletcher did not have a damage estimate available Tuesday night.

Firefighters remained at the scene Tuesday night to conduct overhaul and put out any hot spots, he said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
