October Emeryville Crime Report: Sexual Assault at Bay Street, Carjacking near Doyle Hollis Park

2 mins read

The Emeryville Crime Report for October includes 199 total crimes (up from 175 in August). Emeryville experienced its first reported Rape since April, mapped at the space of the former G by Guess store which shuttered last year. Little information is being provided by the EPD because of the age of the victim and offender but the case is reported to be “closed”. The report also lists our first Carjacking since June stemming from a highway shooting originating in Concord. The recently opened Parc on Powell Apartment complex was “welcomed to the neighborhood” with a burglary of four bicycles. Violent Crime fell overall from September with 21 vs. 30 reported incidents. Typically, Petty Thefts and Auto Burglaries accounted for the bulk of crimes reported making up nearly 70% of all crimes.


The City of Emeryville is divided into small geographical areas that facilitate the Department’s efforts to tract crime and neighborhood problems, and allocate personnel resources to meet the service need. Crime statistics are reported by the EPD through CrimeReports.com. An archive of monthly crime statistics provided can be viewed on the city website.
