6:01 am
this morning and very quickly east bay regional parks got involved in this. they launched a search of joaquin miller park which butts up against the backyard of the house. they sent officers to search for a suspect in the trails. they were called out by oakland police department in connection with a robbery and sexual assault on the 6800 block of wilton drive. they didn't find anyone. they searched the trails and for now, the search has been called off. but again, violent crime out here in the oakland hills what's being described as a robbery and a sexual assault. officers aren't saying much but we'll stick around and see what else we can find out. this is a nice neighborhood and you can imagine this would be quite a shock for some neighbors. >> yeah. you haven't had a chance to talk to any neighbors? >> reporter: you know what, they have all been inside there so typically in situations like this kind of just let them do their thing and once they come out, they will hopefully give us some more information. >> still early, too, at 6:00. thank you, kiet do live in the

6:04 am
obscured from this photo from tmz, prepared to testify that he was home with her the night of the attack babysitting. his attorney again says ramirez is entitled to this parole hearing. but our legal expert does not think ramirez is going to get out of jail anytime soon. of course, there are two other suspects in this case. coming up in the next half hour, we'll talk a little bit more about that. frank and sydnie? >> all right, anne, thank you very much. anne makovec in san francisco. coroner in joplin, missouri says some families will be able to enter the morgue today to try to identify loved ones killed by sunday's tornado. officials have a list of 232 people still considered to be missing. some of those on the list are among the 126 people who were killed. officials admit the list of the missing is not accurate. >> we know that there are individuals on that list that are deceased. and we are working directly with those family members. >> the work is not over.

6:31 am
>> reporter: good morning. in the past 30 minutes we have seen yet another oakland police officer and by our count that's about 4 officers that are inside this home on the 6800 block of wilton drive in the oakland foothills, they are in there interviewing witness to find out what happened. the incident began sometime just before 3:00 this morning. very quickly the east bay regional parks people got involved in this. that is because the backyard butts up against joaquin miller park. neighbors say there is a trail that goes parallel to the street on the other side of this property line. and presumably that's where the suspect took off because that's where the park officers were searching this morning. they went up and down the trails, didn't find anybody. so for now they have called off that search. but they reported to us that they were assisting oakland police in a robbery and a sexual assault at this address. so this is a really nice neighborhood in the oakland hills, highly unusual for this part of town. so this is probably why you're seeing such a large police response. but we'll stick around here for a little bit longer and see what we can find out.
6:32 am
the officers aren't saying much at this point and trying to figure everything out here exactly how everyone is doing and how this investigation is going. but that's all we have for now. >> kiet, thanks so much for the update. kiet do in the oakland hills. several dozen suspects expected to walk today because of alleged misconduct by some san francisco police officers. public defender jeff adachi expected to reveal new evidence against those officers and announcing more than two dozen felony cases are being dropped. he already released surveillance video that appears to show police conducting illegal searches and stealing from suspects. the department has launched and investigation. 6:32. we are learning more bizarre details about about a child abuse case in campbell. kcbs radio's matt bigler has more. >> reporter: good morning. we have some chilling new details about what this alleged abuse was of this 3-year-old girl and also how it was discovered. on may 9, the 15-year-old son
6:33 am
of the abuse suspect went into the family garage in campbell. he was apparently looking for a model car. he stepped on a mattress to try and reach higher. and when he looked down, he saw human hair. under the mattress wrapped inside a carpet was the 3-year- old daughter of his father's girlfriend. the son was the one who actually called police. they responded to the house. no one was there at the time. but fortunately two weeks ago the mother and the daughter were recovered. and the daughter is doing fine at this point. the mother is facing child endangerment charges. but captain dave carmichael with campbell police says they are still searching for 35-year- old george rodriguez who is still at large. >> we are still looking for george. and that investigation is still active. and we are currently following up every lead possible in our attempts to locate george, who
6:34 am
has a $125,000 warrant for his address as a result of this case. >> the girl's mother face felony child endangerment charges. campbell police have been searching homes here in san jose and in sacramento. they believe that george rodriguez has not fled the area at least northern california, that he is hiding out somewhere and anyone who may know about his whereabouts is asked to call campbell police. i'm matt bigler live in san jose for cbs 5. all right, matt bigler with kcbs radio, thank you. it is 6:34. hundreds still missing in missouri and the rescue mission continues five days after that killer tornado roared through joplin. officials have a list of 232 people still considered to be missing. but official admit the list is not completely accurate. >> we know that there are individuals on that list that are deceased. and we are working directly with those family members. >> 126 people are known to have
6:35 am
been killed in joplin. today, some family members might be allowed into the morgue to try to identify some of the victims. it is 6:34. lawrence has the forecast. >> we'll have sunshine and clouds and wind will be the biggest story over the weekend. but today a lot of clouds to start out with this morning, even a chance of some light sprinkles in parts of the north bay. most of that stay well to the north of us. but throughout the day, we'll try and clear out your skies a bit. still temperatures right now you have some 40s and 50s, mostly cloudy skies to begin the morning. toward the afternoon though we'll squeeze in some sunshine and temperatures running up into the 60s and 70s inland, 50s in the bay and 60s at the coastline. the weekend though, a little more sun coming our way. temperatures below average though as we'll see a few passing clouds, as well. but the winds are going to be kicking up on saturday and especially into sunday. come monday memorial day, looks good. temperatures a little bit warmer too. but as we head toward the middle of next week, can you believe it elizabeth? we're talking about the possibility of some more rain.
6:36 am
>> i know. i can't believe it. all right. let's go outside. people may be taking a very long holiday weekend because it is friday light-light this morning. here's a live look at all that light traffic heading towards the bay bridge toll plaza. the metering lights remain off. so no big issues all across the upper deck. we had a stall earlier but that's long since cleared. on the lower deck heading off the bridge towards the toll plaza we are getting word of a three-car fender-bender. it sounds like it's not blocking lanes. they may have cleared it to the right shoulder already. but yeah, that westbound traffic is great. more traffic coming up. in the meantime, back to you guys. >> all right, elizabeth. thanks very much. it is 6:36. you should notice some changes if you drive across the bay bridge this weekend. caltrans planning to change the eastbound lanes as they come off the bridge. some eastbound lanes will be closed overnight saturday and sunday for this week. it will cause a slight detour. the work is part of the process to speed up completion of the new span. and if you are taking bart, get ready for delays between 20 and 40 minutes over the next two weekends. one of the two tracks will be
6:37 am
shut down in the transbay tube which carries trains between oakland and san francisco. crews will be performing several types of maintenance work and conduct some repairs on some electric cables. riders, you can expect delays saturday morning until 7:30. and then again sunday afternoon until 2:30 p.m. the pressure is on for the investigators in the bryan stow beating case. lapd says it could be several days before they can present evidence on their prime suspects. anne makovec in san francisco where stow remains in critical condition. she joins us with more. anne, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we are also hearing that the suspect has a parole hearing coming up on june 4 where it's unlikely but he could actually be released from jail if he isn't officially charged by that point. all this waiting in the meantime very difficult for the stow family. they come here to sf general almost every day to visit bryan stow who is still in critical condition and heavily medicated this morning. the lapd's prime suspect

6:39 am
saw it happen. and yet do you have proof beyond a reasonable doubt? big question. >> ramirez maintains he is innocent. his lawyer says his daughter, whom we obscured from this photo from tmz, is prepared to testify that he was with her at home the night of the attac babysitting. his attorney says he is entitled to a parole hearing on june 4 if the d.a. hasn't filed charges. police say they will hand it over to the d.a.'s office in, quote, the near future. but not a day too soon for the stow family. frank and sydnie. >> i can imagine. taking their time, though, and hopefully patience will pay o. >> reporter: yeah, they say they want to build a strong case before they turn it over. that makes sense. >> absolutely. absolutely. okay, anne makovec, she is live in san francisco. thank you. 6:39. damage control for arnold schwarzenegger. phil matier and willie brown talking about the new twist in his sex scandal. >> plus, two of the biggest internet giants going toe to

mission boulevard north you can see there is no delay through there. and just a little sluggish now as you make your way past the livermore truck scales all the way towards grant line but you will notice that drive time 15 minutes, piece of cake, right? speeds under 25 miles per hour actually a little longer than that. you can westbound lanes of highway 4 look great through pittsburg into concord. all the approaches. so far, so good, no metering lights at the bay bridge toll plaza so no backups heading into san francisco. bart, ace, muni metro and caltrain all on time. there are slight delays on ace trains number 1 and 3, five

6:47 am
security, welfare benefits. essentially over the past three months, incomes have basically been flat. that's something we absolutely need to see increase for greater confidence for people to start spending more on other things besides just gas and food and really stimulate the economy. two-thirds of the economy does depend on consumer spending. yesterday, google unveiled its digital wallet. it's a paying system in conjunction with citibank and mastercard. you can wave your phone in front of a mastercard terminal in stores and buy things without a wallet. ebay isn't happy. its paypal business is its biggest part of its business or at least it will be in the coming years. and as a result it is suing google over poaching a couple of executives over the past couple of years that worked for paypal that were critical in forming that system. and it says that basically in its suit that it's misappropriated some trade secrets by google in using that
6:48 am
information to form its tap to pay system. the stock market is gaining. the dow is up by 57 points. nasdaq higher by 10. s&p right now is up by 7. >> are you going to take monday off? markets closed? >> with any luck i'll be sleeping at this time. but who knows. >> get a few winks for us. >> will do, thanks. >> thanks, jason brooks with kcbs and there are have been a number of twists and turns in schwarzenegger's sex scandal. two people watching it closely cbs 5 political insider phil matier and former san francisco mayor willie brown. gentlemen, good morning to you. >> hey, we're not the only ones watching this very closely of mayor brown, by the way, last week, your comments here... kicked over a hornets nest. your defense of arnold schwarzenegger? people having asking me all week, what is he thinking? >> i'm thinking i'm not running for election. [ laughter ] >> let's get that out.
6:49 am
absolutely. absolutely. but the idea of defending arnold, upset a lot of people. >> you have a man who engaged in certain conduct of. when discovered it becomes reprehensible in everybody's eyesight and he did that and he has to pay whatever the price is. >> and your price for depending him has been -- >> i'm not exactly defending him. i'm simply bringing a touch of reality and people don't like that. they don't like to be reminded that if they were similarly situated, they too would conceal it. >> well, a few people just strongly disagree. as a matter of fact, some people are writing to the "chronicle" saying excuse me, just like you and me, pahleeeze! obviously have very different set of morals than the rest of us. >> well, that obviously is somebody who has a very different set of morals. but you know, there is a standard required for people who are seeking public office. it's called character. and it's more important apparently to a person like that on whether or not you perform, whether or not you're able to fix a pothole, whether or not you're able to fix the
6:50 am
budget. far more important. i happen to believe that i want your performance in the office for which you have been sworn sworn. your character is your business. >> okay. >> now, this one crosses over into celebrity. what do you think of this latest revelation. they are both lawyering up. are we looking at a messy divorce played out in the tabloids? >> i don't think so. i think both of them, maria and arnold, will be smart enough to know in that situation, the lawyers make the money. and i'm a lawyer. >> don't tell me you're going to be representing one of them? >> no, no. that's not my area of the law. but i can tell you that lawyers bill by the hour. and lawyers keep their own hours. >> but back to the question of the mantle, where is the line? john edwards? bill clinton? it is -- there is to live and lead by example, there is that part of it. >> phil, we expect our
6:51 am
politicians and our athletes in particular a level that most of us cannot achieve ourselves if we were similarly situated. we don't require that out of opera singers. we don't require that out of movie stars. we don't require that out of any other collection of people. the word character is incredibly important, particularly in america in public life in those respective categories. and that just is a reality. and if you are going to be there, you better have the ability to display character. >> well, you certainly displayed it. [ laughter ] >> pro and con. thank you for joining thus morning. back to you guys. >> he took a little heat, too. okay. >> yeah. and it will be interesting to see what arnold's child thinks about his character as he grows up and has to read all of this stuff, too. >> and the kid apparently didn't even know he was his dad until just a couple of weeks ago. cbs 5 political insider
