The stranger then pointed a gun at the victim, firing one round that struck the victim on one of his feet, according to the report.

Bicycle thief ends up on roof of house
STOCKTON — A stolen bicycle report in the middle of the night led to the arrest of a woman on multiple charges after she ended up on a homeowner’s roof where she allegedly kicked police officers and a firefighter, according to police.
Officers responded to the area around the 1000 block of South San Joaquin Street, south of downtown Stockton, about 1:40 a.m. Monday where they learned that the suspected bicycle thief was in the backyard of a nearby home.
Upon arrival at the home — whose residents were not involved in the incident — officers discovered the suspect, identified as Chanel Hardwick, 31, on the roof. Hardwick, according to police, initially refused commands to come down, but officers continued to speak with her.
When she still would not get down from the roof, officers — with the assistance of firefighters — climbed up on the roof. As they were taking Hardwick into custody, officials allege she started kicking. Officers arrested Hardwick on suspicion of trespassing, resisting arrest, assault on an officer and public intoxication, according to police.
