Residential Burglaries and Robberies in Pasadena Are Down, Sex Assaults, Car Break-Ins and Vehicle Thefts Are Up

first_img Make a comment Public Safety Residential Burglaries and Robberies in Pasadena Are Down, Sex Assaults, Car Break-Ins and Vehicle Thefts Are Up By BRIAN DAY Published on Thursday, September 3, 2020 | 2:51 pm Pasadena year-to-date crime statistics as of August 2020. Credit: Pasadena Police DepartmentReports of car burglaries, vehicle thefts, and sexual assaults have shown significant increases in Pasadena this year, while incidents of home burglaries and robberies have declined, according to statistics released by police on Thursday.Much of this year’s crime trends appear to have been shaped, in part, by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, said Pasadena police Lt. William Grisafe.Residential burglaries this year have declined by 17 percent, as of the end of August, compared with 2019, which went from 209 to 174 reported incidents, according to the data. Grisafe attributed the decrease to the fact that people are staying home much more of the time.But at the same time, auto thefts and car burglaries have surged, “likely because of COVID as well,” Grisafe said. People are not using their vehicles as much, he said.Reports of stolen vehicles shot up 49 percent this year, from 149 to 222, according to the statistics. Burglaries of cars rose by 35 percent.Grisafe urged the public to avoid leaving items in unattended cars, decreasing the likelihood of being the target of a crime of opportunity.“If something is left in the car, thieves will take the opportunity to steal it,” he said. “Even something as simple as sunglasses.”He added that thieves take notice when vehicles sit parked for long periods of time and may target them as easy prey for burglary or theft.Domestic violence reports were down by 14 percent, but officials worried that might not reflect what’s actually happening behind closed doors amid stay-at-home orders.“There’s a concern that they are not getting reported,” Grisafe said.Reports of rape nearly doubled from 17 in 2019 to 32 this year, the data shows.Grisafe said a reason was not clear, especially considering the recent closure of bars and nightclubs, which often play a role in sexual assaults.But he pointed out that the figures are based on reports of crimes, not their outcomes. At least several of the reported rapes were ultimately determined to be unfounded reports made by people suffering from mental health issues.Commercial burglaries were up 12 percent and burglaries listed as “other,” such as those involving storage lockers, parking structures, and other locations that are neither businesses nor residences, were up by 44 percent.Homicides remained stable with two cases, the data shows.Robberies were down by 13 percent, continuing a steady downward trend over the past four years. Compared with 2017, robberies declined by 45 percent.Grisafe said he suspected the downward trend in robberies was a result of solid work by officers, as well as the public becoming increasingly alert and aware of their surroundings, reducing opportunities to be taken off-guard by a robber.Overall reported crimes in the city increased by 6 percent.

Man who allegedly killed wife, daughter with machete arrested in FL, police say

first_imgMiami Gardens Police Department(MIAMI) — Police arrested a South Florida husband who is accused of brutally killing his wife and their 10-year-old daughter with a machete on the woman’s 49th birthday.Noel Chambers, 57, was apprehended on Tuesday evening, ending a multi-day manhunt, after he allegedly attacked his wife, Lorrice Harris, and the couple’s daughter over the weekend, according to police. He was located outside of a Miami area fire station, Miami Gardens police said. The firemen were arriving back to the station from a call when they recognized him and notified the police, Carlos Austin, the department’s public information officer, told ABC News late Tuesday.“Chief Delma K. Noel-Pratt, chief of police of the Miami Gardens Police Department, directed all of our resources to ensure that we took Mr. Chambers into custody,” Austin said. “Mr. Chambers committed a horrible crime, was considered to be armed and dangerous, therefore we wanted to ensure we captured him quick, and without further incident.”Police responded to a reported dispute at the couple’s home in Miami Gardens, Florida, about 17 miles northwest of Miami, at around 11:30 p.m. Saturday.Officers arrived to the couple’s house a few minutes later and found the bodies of Shayla Chambers and her mother inside, police said.Shayla was found lying in her bed and Harris was discovered on the home’s back porch, police said. The couple’s older daughter, 29-year-old Shanalee Chambers, managed to escape and was rushed to the hospital with stab wounds, according to police.Noel-Pratt spoke about the “heinous” nature of the crime scene at a press conference on Monday.“That scene was terrible. It was just heart-wrenching to see what occurred at that location,” Noel-Pratt said. “These two individuals did not deserve that. His oldest daughter didn’t deserve to be in the hospital right now, trying to recover from wounds that she received after he took it upon himself to take a machete and go slicing up their bodies.”“If he could do this to his wife and his own 10-year-old daughter, he will do it to someone else,” she added.Harris’ family members also spoke to reporters on Monday as they pleaded for the public’s help in locating Chambers, who goes by the nickname “Massive.”“This could have been anybody’s sister, anybody’s daughter — a 10-year-old lying in bed,” Harris’ adult daughter, Ashlee Anderson, told reporters Monday. “This is not a human. This is a monster, and we need to get this monster off the street.”She said Harris and Chambers had been married for about 10 years.Authorities had offered a $3,000 reward for any information leading to an arrest.

Tom Brady ‘thought it was great’ that players took a knee during national anthem

first_imgJune 15, 2018 /Sports News – National Tom Brady ‘thought it was great’ that players took a knee during national anthem Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailJohn Tlumacki/The Boston Globe via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Tom Brady has “respect” for the players who chose to take a knee during the national anthem before football games last season, the New England Patriots quarterback told Oprah Winfrey in an interview.Brady said the controversy surrounding the kneeling protests prompted “a lot of good healthy conversations … in our locker room.”“I respect why people are doing what they are doing. And they’re doing it for different reasons, and that’s okay. You know, you can do things for your reason. They can do things for their reason, and you have respect for that. But, I thought it was great,” Brady told Winfrey.In the interview, a clip of which was released ahead of the full special this weekend, Brady talked about how the Patriots “chose to lock arms” as they walked out as a team after group discussions.“We had meetings after practice talking about how we wanted to deal with that particular situation,” he said.“We support what people are going through,” he said.“I’ve been playing sports long enough [to know] everyone comes from something different, and I think showing respect for everybody, in a locker room, with a team of guys trying to go in the same direction —- you better have that empathy for everybody. That’s what sports are about,” he said.This isn’t the first time Brady has talked about the decision of some players to take a knee to protest police brutality.In September 2017, Brady criticized President Donald Trump, with whom he has been friendly in the past, for calling on any kneeling players to be fired or suspended.Brady said Trump’s comments were “just divisive.”“I think everyone has the right to do whatever they want to do. If you don’t agree, that is fine. You can voice your disagreement, I think that is great. It’s part of our democracy. As long as it is done in a peaceful, respectful way, that is what our country has been all about,” Brady said during a radio show appearance.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Simone Biles wins her 5th all-around World Championships title

first_imgOctober 10, 2019 /Sports News – National Simone Biles wins her 5th all-around World Championships title Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailiStock(NEW YORK) — American gymnast Simone Biles has made history once again.The 22-year-old won the individual all-around title at the 22nd World Championships Thursday.The win is her fifth world all-around title and her 22nd world medal.Biles scored 58.99 points across the balance beam, floor, vault and uneven bars, beating second-place finisher Tan Xijing of China by 2.1 points. The win broke Biles’ own record for women’s record margin of victory.The next closest Team USA finisher was 16-year-old Sunisa Lee, who finished in eighth place with 55.63 total points.Earlier this week Biles and Lee helped lead Team USA to its fifth consecutive world championship title — finishing almost six full points ahead of second-place Russia.The win gave Biles her 21st world medal and the female record for most world gymnastics championships medals.The four-time Olympic gold medalist struck not one but two signature moves: the double-double dismount on the balance beam and triple-double on the floor, both of which will be named after Biles.Both are also performances that the International Gymnast Federation (FIG) even found controversial for the added safety risk.Before the competition began, controversy ensued when FIG announced that Biles’ beam dismount would be valued as an “H,” when it had been widely expected that a skill of such difficulty would be valued higher, as an “I” or a “J.”When questioned why FIG decided to give the dismount what was considered to be a lower value, the federation released a statement, essentially calling the skill a safety risk for other gymnasts to attempt.The backlash from Biles’ camp after FIG’s value was announced was swift, with Biles tweeting out that the ruling was “bulls–t.” Her coach, Cecile Landi, tweeted the decision was “#totalbs.”USA Gymnastics, the sport’s governing body, also released a statement on Biles’ dismount, saying, “USA Gymnastics respectfully disagrees with the value assigned to the balance beam dismount.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Torpids trophies inequality

first_imgOxford University Rowing Clubs (OURC) has voted to launch an investigation after it emerged on Tuesday that the women’s teams who win Torpids do not receive a trophy, unlike their male counterparts.Women have been able to enter Torpids since 1969, although the winners have never received a trophy.Women’s teams who win Summer VIIIs do receive trophies. A captain of one of the men’s college boats told Cherwell: “We voted unanimously in favour of the committee investigating [getting] trophies which would record all winners of women’s Torpids back to its inception.”He continued: “[It’s] really important that they are recognised along with the men seeing as they do exactly the same race, and it’s just very unfair that they wouldn’t be rewarded the same. Hopefully we will see this rectified by the OURCs.“Whilst it will probably be quite expensive to put in place, for me, and I’m sure the majority of the other captains, it’s a point of principle that we uphold a commitment to equal opportunity.”The co-captain of the Balliol women’s team, Nermeen Hilton, who also attended the meeting, said: “We absolutely want there to be a trophy for the women at Torpids.“It’s a great inequality, and knowing people who have won the headship for other colleges we think it’s a real shame that there isn’t a trophy.“In fact, there’s only a women’s trophy for [Summer] Eights because gracious Balliol donors Andrew and Peggoty Graham bought one when Balliol women won the headship in 2010.” Other students voiced their concern over the discrepancy.Second year student Violet Smart, who rows for Mansfield, told Cherwell: “To hear of such blatant injustice within the collegiate rowing system is a massive shame.“Both men’s and women’s teams put in enormous amounts of effort for Torpids and Summer VIIIs and for many college rowers these competitions form the apex of their university rowing careers.“It’s easy to trivialise matters like these, but I think it’s important that we stop perpetuating the image that gender limits the potential of sportspeople.“To win Torpids as a a male or a female is just as much of an achievement, and that should be recognised in the same manner for both teams.”Tom Coles, Sabbatical Officer for OURCs, told Cherwell: “OURCs was only made aware of the absence of a trophy shortly before the meeting where this was raised.“The current trophies (the two trophies for Eights and the men’s trophy for Torpids) long pre-date the existence of OURCs as an organisation and are handled directly by the headship clubs without the involvement of OURCs.”Coles added: “The current ownership of the trophies is unclear, but can be traced back to Oxford University Boat Club and is apparently lent out on a year-by-year basis.“As resolved at the meeting—with the unanimous support of both the committee and the captains—we will be investigating ways to fix this inequality as a matter of priority.”Women’s crews first rowed for the University in 1927, but it was only in 1974 when more colleges started admitting female undergraduates that female college level rowing took off.last_img read more
