Chronic Homeless Offender Keeps Police Busy with 17 Arrests this Year

FREMONT— Homeless persons keep police busy. One such homeless offender 26-year-old Belal Ayubzai has been arrested 17 times this year.

On August 26 he was arrested again—on suspicion of arson, battery, criminal threats, exhibiting a weapon, grand theft, and vandalism.

His arrest record points to a larger problem for California communities with homeless populations. In Fremont for example, disturbances involving homeless persons can account for half the calls logged in the weekly police blotter. The situation in Fremont is apparently not all that unusual.

In one incident on August 24, Fremont officers responding to a residential burglary were tied up for five hours. Ayubzai was located barricaded inside a residence on the 4200 block of Nerissa Circle, where he was allegedly damaging property. He was finally arrested at 7:57 p.m.

For his actions on August 24, Ayubzai faces charges for first-degree residential burglary and burglary while another person is present.

He is presently being housed in Dublin inside Alameda County’s Santa Rita Jail.  Bond for his release was set at $70,000, pending a September 24 court hearing at the East County Hall of Justice.

Ayubzai is no stranger to the criminal justice system. Prior to this year, Ayubzai was arrested 31 times. His offenses have included battery, burglary, robbery, and vandalism to name a few. He has been sentenced to jail and probation multiple times.
