Officers gave chase on foot and successfully took both occupants into custody.

May 19

Involuntary committal: At approximately 2:50 near the 31850 block of Pacific Highway S., officers witnessed a female who was not making any sense when speaking. She kept saying she was Jesus and the police were demons. Then she started saying she had built the tires on the police cars and she was a demon while her mom was the devil. She had soiled herself, and proceeded to say she was doing magic tricks with her face. She thought they were in Seattle, and asked to be taken to Arizona. Business owners called the police on her for shoplifting.

Robbery: At approximately 4:39 p.m. near the 2200 block of S. Commons, a juvenile suspect had shoplifted several items from Target. Once the suspect exited the store with the unpaid merchandise, stoer security attempted to detain the suspect.
