Scam Alert Jun 19, 2018

The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office has been made aware of a recent attempted scam in which individuals are receiving calls on cell and home phones claiming to be from the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office. The callers leave messages or speak to the individual answering the phone and addresses the call recipient by name and supplies a correct date of birth. The caller claims to be collecting on a payday advance loan with a case number and demands an immediate cash payment be wired or the person will face arrest, prosecution and wage garnishment.

The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office NEVER calls with a demand for money or payment. Any such calls are a scam and the public is warned not to wire or otherwise send money in response to such calls.

Anyone receiving a similar call demanding payment may report the attempted fraud to the District Attorney’s Office by calling 510-383-8600.

People v Timothy Dalton May 18, 2018

On May 10 2018, a jury found Defendant Timothy Dalton guilty of Elder Abuse, Domestic Violence, vandalism and two counts of violating a stay away order, all misdemeanor offenses. On March 29 2018 at about 8:00p.m., Mr. Dalton went to his girlfriend’s father’s house convinced she was cheating on him. Mr. Dalton began punching his girlfriend in the mouth while in the front yard. When her 81 year old father came to her aid, Mr. Dalton punched him with enough force to knock him to the ground and began hitting him repeatedly in the face, leaving a permanent scar. The assault was witnessed by good Samaritan neighbors, one of whom had a Stay Away Order against Mr. Dalton because of his repeated past assaultive behavior against his girlfriend and threats to anyone who intervened on her behalf.

The case was handled by DDA Maggie Calonge, Inspector Jason Hawks and Victim-Witness Advocate Dina Aindow.
