A potentially tragic situation ended peacefully after Redlands Police officers persuaded an armed and barricaded man to surrender Tuesday night.

Police responded to a call of a man and woman struggling for control of a gun at a home in the 1200 block of Herald Street shortly before 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 25. While police were still en route to the home, the caller reported the man was chasing the woman with a knife.

The Redlands Police Department recently received a $18,600 grant from the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to conduct undercover and decoy operations targeting businesses and individuals who provide or serve alcohol to minors, businesses that overserve alcohol or provide narcotics and use of false identifications and to fund inspections and community education efforts for ABC-licensed businesses.

Police are seeking the public’s help to provide information leading to the identity of a suspect who followed a woman in a white minivan Tuesday morning.

The victim, a 24-year-old female, reported that she was walking north on Center Street shortly before 9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18, when she was approached by a white minivan. The driver followed and attempted to talk to her driving away after she threatened to call police. She then walked to a nearby apartment complex where she reported the incident to the apartment manager who called police.

Redlands Police cited clerks and servers at three local businesses for selling alcohol to minors during a minor decoy operation Friday, Nov. 14.

On Friday, an underage volunteer attempted to purchase alcohol at 20 establishments. Employees at three businesses sold or served alcohol to the minor decoy.

Redlands Police are warning parents as they seek to identify a man who exposed himself to at least two Moore Middle School students as they walked to a bus stop Monday morning.

The girls were walking to the bus stop at Sun Avenue and Calhoun Street at about 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 10, when they saw the man exposing himself next to a silver or gray four-door sedan. The man left the area in the vehicle after being spotted by an adult.

Earlier that morning the same man reportedly approached another student in his vehicle and tried talking to her but did not expose himself.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male between 20 and 30 years old, 5 feet, 7 inches tall, with a medium build. He had a small mustache and appeared to be unshaven. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt and unknown color shorts.

The City of Redlands Recreation Division and Redlands Police Department along with several local businesses are collecting toys for the 17th Annual Children’s Christmas Block Party. This year’s toy drive is critically important. Grant funding has been limited for the past several years and the toy drive will be a major contributor to the toys/gifts given to the children this year. In previous years, the toy drives have matched the gifts purchased through grant funding allowing more than 1,000 gifts/toys to be donated to our community, local shelters and families in crisis.
