Several San Diego police officers arrived at Azucar bakery/café on Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach on October 9 at around noon. Two patrol cars parked in the adjacent gas-station parking lot; two more police cars were in front of the popular Cuban business. Neighbors and customers in the area feared the worst. Some thought a robbery had occurred.

As patrons gathered outside while police investigated, it was learned that the activity was prompted by a lady customer of Azucar wanting to speak to police about problems with her daughter. According to an Azucar employee, the woman, who lives up the street, "specifically requested the police meet her [here].... The customer did not want to upset her daughter by having the officers come directly to her home."

So a woman called the cops to a bakery because she didn't want to them to talk to her daughter at home? And this is newsworthy because....?

I would say it is newsworthy because the cops have been taking a lot of heat from the women (& men) of OB for not doing enough to stop the peeping toms & sex abusers who are harassing the beach area's females. I commend the Reader for being balanced in their coverage of both the cops helping out & the frightened OB females who are mobilizing to stop the creepers. BTW, the Halloween cookies @ Azucar are out-of-this world delicious!

So the point of the story is that the cops do come when they are called? Or, people do call the cops when they need them? Or, the cookies are really good at this bakery? Or, the cops know to go to a bakery whenever they called because they will probably end up with good cookies?

Yes to all, @Javajoe25. But I think the cops might have all been there looking for donuts, not cookies!

Ahhh, donuts. Yummy. No one ever said the cops were stupid.

I just hope donuts or not, the cops and the citizens in OB are able to get a handle on the problems that have been occurring. Just read about the stabbing and another groping yesterday. Unreal.
