June 15, 7:22 p.m. Antioch police officers responded to the report of an armed, suicidal subject at Worth Shaw Complex, 801 James Donlon Blvd. The subject, a 58-year-old male Bay Point resident, was seated in his vehicle, holding a handgun and threatening suicide. Negotiators were called in, and during the negotiations, the subject stated several times he wanted the officers to shoot him. The negotiations continued for approximately one hour before the subject surrendered peacefully. The weapon was confiscated and the subject was transported to a local hospital for evaluation. No one was injured.
June 15, 9:39 p.m. On 412 K St., a 49-year-old Antioch resident was returning home from the local market, placing cash from his pocket into his wallet, when he was approached by two black male adults, one riding a razor scooter, who grabbed the wallet out of his hands and fled. The victim gave chase to the robbers, but lost them shortly after the case began. The first is described as 20 to 30 years old; medium build, wearing red shorts. The second is 20 to 30 years old; thin build, riding a razor scooter. The victim was not injured.
June 16, 5 p.m. In the 1600 block of East 18th Street, a woman stepped out into the street in front of an eastbound car, forcing the driver to come to a complete stop in order to avoid hitting the woman. A black car also stopped in the roadway about 50 feet ahead of the first car. Two Hispanic males exited the black car, one carrying a baseball bat and the other a handgun. The male with the gun pointed it at the driver and told him to get out of his car. When he exited the car, he was struck in the arm by the subject with the baseball bat and told to get into the back seat of his own car, at which time the female got into the black car. Both cars traveled eastbound, while the assailants told the victim to empty his pockets. He was forced to exit the car at East 18th and Phillips Lane. From there he was able to get a ride home. The victim did not call the police right away, and his story changed several times. The Antioch Police Department will be investigating the inconsistencies. The stolen car is a blue, four-door 1988 Acura Legend; license plate 3JHA 393. The male suspects are described as Spanish speaking. The first is 30 to 35 years old; 5 feet 6 inches, 175 pounds; wearing a black ball cap, black jeans and blue shirt with white stripes. The second is 20 to 30 years old; 5 feet 6 inches, 175 pounds; wearing black pants. The female is blond, 20 to 25 years old; 5 feet 1 inch, 150 pounds.
June 20, 12:01 a.m. Officers of the Antioch Police Department responded to several reports of shots fired in the 2400 block of Silveria Way. Upon arrival, officers found that an 18-year-old female had been shot twice in the legs. The victim was taken to an area hospital and treated for her injuries, which appear to be not life-threatening. The shooting occurred as a result of an argument in front of a residence on Silveria Way during a party. It appears that the victim was only a bystander, and not involved in the argument. Several nearby homes and vehicles were hit with bullets. The case is still under investigation.
