Man Sitting on Tracks Disrupts Train Traffic & Other FPD Citations This Weekend

FREMONT – The Fremont Police dealt with a mixed bag of complaints and arrests this weekend, ranging from the mundane to the strange.

Friday afternoon before 3PM, police responded to the scene of an argument between two men that ended when one man, Elmer M. De La Rosa Juarez, 40, of Fremont, punched the other man.  The victim sustained only minor injuries, and De La Rosa Juarez was cited on suspicion of 3rd Degree Assault.

Saturday morning, about an hour before sunrise, Juan M. Hernandez-Montoya, 30, of Fremont was arrested on suspicion of criminal mischief following a disturbance at a residence in the 800 block of south Broad Street.  He is accused of forcibly breaking into the trailer of a former acquaintance while intoxicated.  He was also charged with disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct and 2nd degree criminal trespassing.

Sunday afternoon, police responded to the scene of a property damage accident in the 700 block of north Pebble street. Reports state that a vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed before it left the road and struck a street sign and tree. The vehicle then fled the scene. A short investigation later, Trevor R. McClurg, 35, of Fremont was cited on suspicion of driving with a suspended license and for leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

A few hours after that incident, at approximately 3:35PM, police responded to a call stating a man was sitting on the train tracks in the 1100 block of west Linden Avenue and refusing to move, a decision which interrupted train traffic on the line. When police arrived, they found Lefty R. Dillender, 36, of Fremont, still sitting on the railroad tracks. He repeatedly refused an officer’s requests to get off of the tracks, and showed signs consistent with the consumption of alcoholic beverages. As a result, Dillender was arrested on suspicion of 2nd Degree Trespassing.

The final incident of the weekend came just before midnight last night. Police received multiple complaints from different residences in the 1100 block of north D street, with each caller reporting trespassing. The first resident reported that a man entered their home and tried to go to sleep on a couch inside. The resident roused the man, kicked him out, and called the police. As police were en route, David L. Kriz, 62, of Fremont went down a few houses and was eventually found sleeping on the front porch of another residence. Police responded and arrested Kriz on suspicion of 2nd Degree Trespassing.
