The crime blotter is compiled from public record and is not confirmed by Martinez Police or any other party unless otherwise stated. Some accounts may be unfounded.
Sunday, June 12
Around 4 p.m., a mother and her daughter exchanged hits in a fight that occurred at the Lotus apartments on Alhambra Avenue.
At 7:10 p.m., a man was walking around and screaming at the Goodyear Tire shop on Alhambra Avenue.
Eight minutes later, at the Safeway supermarket down the street, a man in a backpack was “yelling aggressively at people about sexual orientation.”
Near 8 p.m., a neighborly confrontation about a loose dog turned south when one neighbor pushed the other up against her front door and told her to go back inside. He then left the scene in his Range Rover.

An Alhambra Avenue Quick Stop market was robbed of lotto tickets at gunpoint at 1:36 a.m.
At 8:11 a.m., a Martinez woman was reportedly very upset over people entering her property on Elm Street. Which is the plot of that movie, “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”

At 7:22 a.m., a cigarette and a jug of lighter fluid were found in the burn area of a small fire that took place on a patio on Mill Road.
Near 9 a.m., a woman, alone in her Muir Lodge Motel room, stated someone was trying to kill her. That is some wake-up call they have there.
A woman on the corner of Estudillo Street and Haven Street was yelling and swearing at 11:45 a.m. Probably yelling, “It’s lunchtime.”
At 3:19 p.m., a man on Estudillo Street near the Campbell theater was asked by a stranger if he wanted to buy cocaine.
Later that afternoon, a man flourished a 6 to 8 inch knife in an imaginary fight he was having with a non-existent person outside the Starbucks on Main Street. He later put away his knife and entered Starbucks for a cup of victory-coffee, I presume.
