    Man sleeping at the beach wanted for violent crime in Fresno
    On Oct. 4 at about 12:14 a.m., Pacific Grove Police officers contacted a man sleeping in a vehicle parked in a beach access turnout in the 1200 block of Ocean View Blvd., for being in the turnout after hours – a violation of Pacific Grove Municipal Code.
    The subject advised he was from Fresno and had no identification, but verbally identified himself to officers. A records check found that the name the man gave belonged to someone who was deceased.
    The subject was taken into custody and transported to the police station so that his identity could be verified via fingerprints.
    After the subject’s fingerprints were submitted to the California Department of Justice, Pacific Grove Police received a phone call from the Fresno County Sheriff’s Dept. advising that the subject, who was now positively identified as Christopher Crowder, 49, of Fresno, was wanted for beating his elderly father with a baseball bat earlier on Oct. 3 in Fresno County.
    Due to pre-existing medical conditions, Crowder was transported from PGPD to CHOMP. Fresno Sheriff’s Dept. detectives advised they would be following up on their case later in the day at CHOMP.
