    Assault on TJ police station leaves one officer dead

    Assault on TJ police station leaves one officer dead

    December 19, 2007


    TIJUANA: A group of armed men opened fire inside Rosarito Beach's police station yesterday afternoon in an attack that left one officer dead and another wounded, Baja California authorities said. Two unidentified civilians were also wounded during the assault at 12:40 p.m., according to a news release from the state Attorney General's Office.
    The officers worked as bodyguards for the city's public security director, state authorities said. The director wasn't in the building during the attack.
    The dead bodyguard was identified as Guillermo Castro Corona, 35. The wounded bodyguard was identified as Leonel Pizaña Trip.
    Authorities later found four abandoned cars believed to have been used by the assailants. –A.C.
    SWAT team called on to bring in shooting suspect

    An 18-year-old suspected of fatally shooting a man at the College Grove shopping center in San Diego last year was arrested Monday night in Escondido after police used tear gas to flush him from an apartment.
    Tyierre Perry surrendered without a struggle as a SWAT team surrounded the apartment on North Midway Drive near East Valley Parkway, Escondido police Lt. David Mankin said.
    Perry was wanted in the fatal shooting of Spencer Watts, 20, in the parking lot of Wal-Mart off College Avenue and state Route 94 on April 22, 2006.
    A 15-year-old boy told a Wal-Mart employee that he was in a car with Watts when he picked up two men or teens, who then tried to rob Watts. The men were in the back seat, and when Watts refused to give them what they wanted, one shot him in the back.
    The car, which was running, rolled back into another car. Watts was dead behind the wheel when police arrived. Two men were seen running away.
    San Diego homicide investigators obtained an arrest warrant for Perry. Mankin said they received a tip that Perry was in the North Midway Drive apartment, and a detective who went there to check saw him Monday night. –P.R.
    Construction site mischief leads to transient's arrest

    NATIONAL CITY: National City police arrested a man suspected of stealing $1,860 worth of equipment and doing $10,000 in damage to a construction site yesterday, according to a police report.
    The 33-year-old transient was booked on suspicion of grand theft, vehicle theft, second-degree burglary, felony vandalism and on a felony arrest warrant for being a parolee at large.
    By the report's account, a guard saw the thief at the Harbor View Condominiums project on East 8th Street at about 1 a.m. The man was driving a pickup that had been reported stolen.
    The thief took copper plumbing fittings, fire sprinkler system fixtures, a welding tank and other gear, the report stated. Police chased the man to a nearby church, where they found him hiding, according to the report. –C.M.
    Man gets 45 years in jail for rape, police shootout

    EAST COUNTY COURTS: A man caught trying to rape a woman at gunpoint was sentenced in El Cajon Superior Court yesterday to 45 years in prison.
    Raúl Yepez Jiménez, 31, of El Cajon pleaded guilty Dec. 4 to attempted rape for attacking the woman and attempted murder for firing a handgun at police. Had he gone to trial and been convicted, Jiménez would have faced a maximum penalty of life in prison, Deputy District Attorney Renee Palermo said.
    Jiménez had approached a woman about 2 a.m. June 28 in front of an El Cajon apartment building on Washington Street, pointed a gun at her and groped her, according to witness testimony at a September hearing.
    Nearby police officers heard the woman scream. When they reached the scene, Jiménez tried to escape, firing at police as he ran. An officer who chased Jiménez shot him twice in the stomach. Jiménez spent about a week in the hospital. –R.H.

    This is becoming a typical incident in the Mexico regions as the drug cartels are getting more and more heat placed on them. Heck, they shot up a helicopter delivering Santa Claus to a depressed neighborhood because the druggies thought it was the Federales coming into town to raid them.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
