Hammocks Officers-of-the-Month honored Nov. 20 by Citizens Advisory Committee chair James Blough (far left) and Maj. Arnold Palmer, district commander, (far right) include (l-r) Giovanni Rodriguez, Orlando Sanchez, Enrique Noriega and Sgt. Ricardo Toledo. The quartet nabbed a knife-armed assailant who threatened a mother seated on a park bench while watching her son play at Quail Roost Park on Nov. 12. The subject escaped with the woman’s neck chain and wristwatch. Sgt. Toledo and Officer Noriega quickly arrived on scene to get the victim’s description of a white male who drove away in a Toyota, which they later stopped, only to see him open the door and flee. With the help of Officers Rodriguez and Sanchez, who blocked his route, the subject was captured “on the run,” apprehended and later charged following a positive ID and recovery of the knife in the subject’s pants pocket.
