Remember to vote!

Posted by Len Gilbert on June 7, 2010

Remember to vote in tomorrow’s election (Tuesday, June 8th). I was going to write an election recommendation here, but changes at work, lots of kids’ sports and school activities mean that the piece is only “written” in my head…

My one quick recommendation is for John Creighton for Alameda County Superior Court Judge. He has great endorsements, the right approach,  and I feel he’s the best and most qualified candidate.

for Alameda County Superior Court Judge

Below is the official press release from the Piedmont police department.

Press Release

On Tuesday, June 1, 2010, at approximately 4:58am, the Piedmont Police Department received a 911 call from a woman reporting that she was being robbed and the suspects were still in her house.  Piedmont police officers arrived to the home, located in the 300 block of Magnolia Ave., and contacted a male victim who was outside of the home.  He was bleeding from a cuts to his arms that he received from jumping through a window to escape the suspects.  He was transported to Highland Hospital by Piedmont Fire Department Ambulance.  Shortly after the officers’ arrival, the female victim exited the home, stating that her children were locked in a bathroom.  Piedmont police officers entered the home and retrieved the children.   A search of the home was then conducted with the help of a K-9 from the Emeryville Police Department.  No suspects were located.

According to the victims, four black males wearing “hoodies” and armed with guns entered the home through an open bedroom window and confronted them, demanding money.  At one point, the male victim jumped through the bedroom window to escape and summon help.  Several of the suspects exited the home and chased after the male victim.  The remaining suspect then left the home in an unknown direction.  The victims report that a Rolex watch and cellular phone were taken by the suspects.

A small, light-colored car was seen leaving the area shortly after the time of this robbery.  The car had been parked on Arbor Dr. and was driven off toward Grand Av.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective George Phifer at 510-420-3013.
