Dear Requester:


We reviewed your request for information pertaining to an incident that occurred on 01/01/2020.


Your request was made under the California Public Records Act (the Act). The Department is cognizant of its responsibilities under the Act. It recognizes the statutory scheme was enacted to maximize citizen access to the workings of government and does not mandate disclosure of all documents within the government’s possession. Rather, by specific exemption and reference to other statutes, the Act recognizes that there are boundaries where the public’s right to access must be balanced against such weighty considerations as the right of privacy, a right of constitutional dimension under California Constitution, Article 1, Section 1. The law also exempts from disclosure, records that are privileged or confidential, or otherwise exempt under either express provisions of the Act or pursuant to applicable federal or state law, per California Government Code Sections 6254(b); 6254(c); 6254(f); 6254(k); and 6255.


We located an incident report responsive to your request.  Our ability to provide information is dictated by Government Code Section 6250 et seq.  While Section 6254(f)(2) allows for the release of some information, it does not provide for the release of copies of reports. The record may be obtained through a subpoena or court order related to pending litigation.


In accordance with Section 6254(f)(2), the following information from the incident report is summarized below:


  • Date and Time of Occurrence: 01/01/2020, 05:30 AM
  • Location of Occurrence: 1153 E 56th St
  • Date and Time of Report: 01/02/2020, 12:00 AM
  • Name and Age of Victim: Brittany Spivey, 27
  • Factual Circumstances of Incident: Suspect and victim had verbal argument; suspect grabbed knife and cut victim on hand.
  • General Description of Injuries, Property or Weapons: Butcher knife


If you have any questions, please respond to this email.
