South San Francisco, CA – April 22, 2022 from the South San Francisco Police Department Facebook Page
This week in South San Francisco:
April 14th, 2022, SSFPD Graveyard officers “responded to a hotel on the 200 block of South Airport Boulevard after a witness reported a male subject struck his 4-year old toddler in the face and was under the influence of alcohol.”
The officers made contact with the male and toddler outside of their hotel room. The male subject was said to be aggressive and displaying erratic behavior. He also was showing signs of intoxication through alcohol or controlled substances.
When officers attempted to handcuff the male, he resisted and was subsequently wrestled to the ground with other officers responding to assist. While struggling with the officers, a firearm (“Ghost Gun”) “fell from the male’s person.” He was booked in the San Mateo County Jail. No injuries to the subject or officers were reported.
The 4 year old toddler was released to family members.
“Chief Campbell commented on the incident by saying, ‘Outstanding police work! This volatile incident could have gone a number of different ways.’ He thanked the involved officers for their swift action, bravery, and safely resolving a potentially deadly situation.”

The male had a grocery bag with him and in it officers found a fully-automatic Glock 19, “ghost gun.” The firearm had been altered to contain a switch that allowed it to fire continuously.
