The other driver got out of his vehicle and fired two shots from what looked like a handgun at the victim’s vehicle, damaging their window, then drove away. Officers checked the area and were unable to find the suspect. The damage to the car window looked like it was made by a pellet or bb gun. The suspect was described as a black or Hispanic male, 35-40 years old, of average height and weight with facial hair, wearing a black hat and black clothing.  He was driving a dark-colored SUV. (2017-65017)

Beat 6 (west Roseville)
Woodcreek, vehicle theft: Overnight September 29/30, someone stole a gray 1998 Honda Civic from an apartment complex parking lot at 1098 Woodcreek Oaks Blvd. This was a “Honda Hunter Special”—thieves like these old sedans because they’re quick and easy to steal.
