A parolee who led police on a short foot chase Thursday was linked to a stolen car full of burglary tools. Just before 1 p.m., the Berkeley Police Department received a call about a man in South Berkeley who was slumped over in a car that reportedly had been running for three hours, said Capt. Andrew Greenwood, in the 2900 block of Adeline Street. Police responded and found a 41-year-old man who was later identified as Roberto Pasillas of Berkeley. He was arrested after running from police. Pasillas remains in custody and is scheduled for a hearing to revoke his parole on June 27, according to the Alameda County sheriff’s department. (Read more on Berkeleyside.)

The Berkeley Police Department arrested a man alleged to have tried to shoot and kill his wife in West Berkeley. According to Berkeley Police, the incident occurred in the 800 block of Bancroft Way between Fifth and Sixth streets at 10 p.m. The 68-year-old man, Harold Owen Covington was at home when he got into a verbal dispute with his wife. According to court papers, the woman came home after visiting a friend to find all the doors locked. When she tried to go inside, police said Covington told her, “If you come in, I’ll blow your head off.” Police said he then opened the door slightly, pointed his shotgun at her head and chest, and said again he would kill her. She asked him to put down the gun, and he refused, according to court papers, telling her that she had disrespected him. She grabbed the shotgun and pushed it away from her. They struggled briefly and the gun went off, striking the top of their door. Afterward, the woman was able to talk Covington into putting down the weapon and letting her inside. The woman called police Saturday, June 14, shortly after 5 a.m. to report what had happened. Officers responded to the home and arrested Covington on suspicion of attempted homicide. He is being held on several related charges with a $115,000 bail at Santa Rita Jail and is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing June 25 at Wiley W. Manuel Courthouse in downtown Oakland. (Berkeleyside broke the news about this incident June 16.)Continue reading »
