While walking home from Tracy High on Ninth Street on Friday, Jan. 11, a student was reportedly harassed by a man.

The girl was walking on the 200 block of East Ninth Street around 4 p.m. when the man, who was walking the other direction, began to follow her and tried to “touch” her, the log states.

The girl’s father saw the man and confronted him, saying that he needed to leave his daughter and all children alone. The man reportedly acknowledged the father’s words and walked away.

The man was described as being Latino and in his 30s wearing a black jacket, gray shirt and blue jeans.

The father wanted to report the incident to police, though the log indicates no report was taken.

Tracy police received 447 calls for service Friday, Jan. 11 to Sunday, Jan. 13. The following is a sample of those reports.

Sunday

2:36 a.m.: Police arrested a 24-year-old man on the 1800 block of Parker Avenue for allegedly driving under the influence. The man was reportedly confronted by a resident on Parker Avenue after he and an accomplice parked outside of a house. When the men started walking toward the residence, the homeowner yelled for them to leave. One of the men was allegedly holding some kind of bottle. Officers were able to locate the vehicle and make an arrest for DUI.

1:12 p.m.: A resident on the 4600 block of Windsong Court reported that his neighbor was throwing dog feces over their fence and into his yard. The neighbor denied the claim.

7:20 p.m.: Police responded to the 600 block of Tulare Court where a resident accused his neighbor of setting a fire in his backyard. The victim believed that the neighbor threw a lit cigarette over the fence, catching a cooler and table on fire. The neighbor denied the charges.



Saturday

2:53 a.m.: About 15 people were seen fighting on the 1500 block of Holly Drive. When officers arrived, they stopped several people and arrested a minor who was wanted on a warrant from the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office. The minor was taken to San Joaquin County Juvenile Hall.

Friday

7 a.m.: A resident on the 2100 Lighthouse Circle reportedly found two male teenagers inside his daughter’s closet when he went to wake her up for school. The daughter allegedly snuck the two boys inside her room sometime during the night. They refused to give their names to the father, who then called police. Police cleared the scene after neither teen was found to have a criminal history.

11:14 a.m.: A 1997 BMW Z3 roadster was reported stolen from the driveway of a residence on the 1200 block of Cornucopia Place. Neighbors found broken glass in the driveway and told police that the car had been missing for at least two days. The owners were reportedly out of town for about a week.

The man was taken to San Joaquin County Jail in French Camp.

The BMW roadster was stolen because he made it obvious he wasn't home. NO lights on the inside and lights on night and day on the outside of the house. Get light timers and you make it harder for them to know.

Wow, what would you do in a situation like this? I wonder how old the daughter was and how old her'friends' were? Someone needs to sit that daughter down for a serious talk.
