Juvenile arrested after attempted stabbing in Central Park

Ricardo Cazares was arrested and charged with possession of a dangerous weapon following an attempted stabbing of another juvenile just coming out of the Sunnyside swimming pool area this past Saturday at 6:04 p.m.

Officers issued notices to Cazares and three others-Enrique Rodriquez, Jesus A. Magana and Ratmundo Casares-that they are not to trespass in Central Park in the future.

Shots heard just 12 minutes into this morning (Monday) were reported by a resident in the 700 block of Bagley Drive, who told officers about eight shots were fired and several people were seen running to a vehicle, which sped off on a dirt road leading into the county.

Over the weekend, officers also dealt with two reports of attempted suicide, one by an apparently intoxicated man, who fired a round from a shotgun in his garage at a home on Midvale Road at 11:07 p.m. Sunday, and a woman, whose difficulty was reported at 7:49 p.m. Friday at a home on South Sixth Street.

A report of an intoxicated person being dragged from behind the United Methodist Church on East Decatur Avenue and left on a slab in back of a house evolved into a report of a possible case of assault on a woman. That report was made at 1:48 a.m. Saturday. Sunnyside firefighters responded to this aid call and transported an injured person to Sunnyside Community Hospital.

At 4:53 a.m. Saturday, officers were called to Sunnyside Community Hospital to investigate a possible sexual offense, which allegedly occurred in the Grandview area.

Eight thefts were reported over the weekend in Sunnyside, but one was a practical joke on a graduating Sunnyside senior, who returned to his vehicle after graduation Friday to find parts of the stereo equipment missing. When he found out friends were responsible, he told officers he wouldn't press charges against them.

The other thefts included:

-two items of clothing shoplifted from Gen X Clothing, valued at $56, but recovered, reported at 4:56 p.m. Friday.

-a 20", boy's Mongoose Rebel bicycle, valued at $100, reported missing at 10:31 p.m. Saturday from a residence in the 500 block of Yakima Valley Highway. The bicycle is black with green neon markings and solid rubber tires from Les Schwab. It's serial number is PO5L16704.

-an attempted shoplift from Wal-Mart of a cart full of items, reported at 1:15 p.m. Saturday by Wal-Mart security, who attempted to make contact with the suspect, who ran to a forest green van.

-gas, valued at $49, pumped but not paid for at The Outpost, reported at 4:53 p.m. Saturday.

-a purse taken from a vehicle parked in the lot at 2705 East Lincoln Avenue, reported at 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

-a camera, reported missing at 10:24 p.m. Saturday by a Wal-Mart shopper who noticed the loss after arriving home.

-a black and yellow Road Runner bicycle, taken from in front of the Sunnyside Library, reported at 6:20 p.m. Sunday.

From 9:12 a.m. Friday to 7:26 a.m. this morning (Monday), officers also investigated five alarms, two alcohol offenses, four animal problems, five assaults, two citizen disputes, two abuses of a controlled substance, three disorderly conducts, four fights, one forgery, one fraud, two reports of graffiti, three reports of harassment, one intoxicated person, one juvenile problem, four reports of loud music, two 911 hang-up calls, two runaway juveniles, one suspicious person, one threat, 19 traffic problems, four trespassers, two reports of vandalism, a parking problem and three weapon violations.

They also checked out a report of a fire, served 15 arrest warrants, gave eight assists to agencies and three to citizens, fielded four informational calls, took a report of a recovered stolen vehicle and two reports of found property, including a rifle found in the yard of a home in the 1200 block of South 13th Street while the homeowner was cleaning the yard.
