6:00 pm
that can be best described as erratic. >> abc 7 news reporter chris nguyen is live on the scene. what's going on right now. >> that suspect was safely taken into custody just moments ago. you can see behind me the heavy police presence here on warm springs boulevard as police continue their investigation. the scene is active, but their goal, of course, is to get this road back open as soon as possible. as we take a look at some video from sky 7, fremont police tell us the suspect was involved in a home invasion robbery around 10:30 this morning. he made his way to this hotel under construction where he spent nearly six hours in a standoff with police. at one point he was throwing gasoline cans and tools off the roof of the building. he even let soit some rags on f appearing very agitated. >> our crisis floishnegotiators
6:01 pm
trained to deal with that to keep the channel of communication open. >> police were able to use drones to see what the suspect had access to in terms of those construction materials and equipment. that was a huge concern throughout the day. they knew that he could be violent because police say he assaulted the victim in that home invasion robbery earlier in the day. but police do tell me that the victim is expected to be okay. back here live. police tell us the suspect did make a request for some cigarettes and food. they provided those items to the man as part of the negotiation, but just moments ago he surrendered peacefully to police. we're live in fremont tonight. i'm chris nguyen, abc 7 newsment back to you. >> what a bizarre story. glad it's all at an end. now to storm watch. sky 7 found some people who enjoyed this weather, have you ever seen
6:02 pm
other people, though, aren't enjoying this weather quite as much. >> it sucks. because it's still -- every time it's like this, means zero. you can't catch any crab. >> in pacifica this morning they told us that the strong surf stirs up too much sand. drew tuma joining us now with a look at the storm. >> drew? >> we got rough surf along the coast line. this is where the rain is falling. it's light in intensity. some light rain falling from palo alto down through cupertino over into campbell right now. just a smattering of showers as you go north into cloverdale along 101. the wider picture, what we're watching is a cold front that's currently moving through northern california. light rain here, but we are seeing snow in the sierra with a winter weather advisory there. we are watching our visibility
6:03 pm
begin to decrease, down to 3 miles. down to 5 miles in santa rosa. this is a level 1 light system with scattered showers tonight. some of this is going to try to linger into part of our day tomorrow. so i'll show you what to expect for the weekend ahead we will find dry times and we'll have that full forecast in a few minutes. now a steady snow is falling over the sierra as we speak, and that's making travel to the tahoe area a challenge. roads are slick and snow covered, and visibility is poor. just over an hour ago the chp issued chain controls in both directions on i-80. you'll find some but not all resorts are completely open. this chart you see here shows the amount of skiable terrain at each. kirkwood and mt. rose at 100%, followed by sugar bowl, sierra at tahoe, and borial.
6:04 pm
a reminder, you work always track the storm and check conditions with live doppler 7. we look at what needs improvement. this week we've been reporting on the city of san francisco losing business. first, oracle decided not to hold its annual conference in the city because of high costs and dirty streets. that will cost millions. yesterday we told you businesses at pier 39 are saying the dirty streets are drivin tourists away. many of you responded to that story by reaching out to us with your opinions. lea spent the day reading through so many interesting comments. >> after reading some of those comments from viewers, it seems san franciscans have reached a tipping point. they want results, they told me. many complained the city continues to increase its budget on services for the homeless, but they're not seeing things improve as quickly as they would
6:05 pm
like. pier 39 is one of the safest places in san francisco because it has its own security. it's also impeck bly clean. yesterday the president of sim coe restaurants said they are not getting the number of tourists they used to. in the past two years they had to hire a marketing team and a bus service that brings tourists to them. this way, she says, they avoid many of the problems of the city. >> so you step off the property at pier 39 and you're just faced with all of this. i think the city has to open their eyes and realize that something has to be done. >> many of you agreed. a viewer gave us this feedback. san francisco has turned into a giant ghetto and the politicians said we voted for it. another viewer told us the wine country is seeing the impact of the city's problems. one wrote to us, they, meaning the tourists, are just disgusted by what they see in the city and the cost and will never go back. napa valley piggy backs on the
6:06 pm
sf tourism. if people stop coming, it will affect us too. on the streets we heard this. >> i thought it had gotten better. >> other viewers didn't think it was fair for businesses to blame the homeless. larry nelson also wrote to us, when businesses take the easy route with blame, it's cheaper than the quality of some of their products. blame is a shame. give the homeless a job. this visitor from sacramento seemed to agree. >> we need to help our homeless. >> these are all opposing arguments that will continue as long as homelessness persist. i hear people saying they have a compassion fatigue towards the homeless. mayor breed says she can fix it and that will work in her xaver obviously the homeless crisis is more than just people who lost
6:07 pm
their jobs and became homeless for o reason or another. there is really a much darker side to this, and that is of course mental illness, which we see in huge numbers out on the streets. that's the biggest challenge in terms of how to address that part of this crisis. >> it is the biggest challenge by far. that drove it home for a lot of people. they saw it. what is the city doing? this past tuesday the board of supervisors voted to provide mental health care to those who need it and who are homeless. they're going to pour a lot of resources into that, but the second part of this is getting these people to realize that they have mental issues, mental problems, and the city knows it won't be easy. >> huge challenge. leann, thank you so much. >> we're always interested in your feedback.

6:15 pm
it's really what they do at the event and how they enable the feedback they get. >> now, it's understandable that apple can't invite everybody, but it is worth noting that this is a 175-acre property housing about 12,000 employees, so they do have the room. apple didn't return our calls. in cupertino, chris reyes, abc 7 news. a popular hayward restaurant is closing after 71 years in business. the hayward ranch on mission boulevard. it will close cloez for good after a final new year's eve farewell. abc 7 news reporter leslie brinkley takes you inside. >> you can't miss the bull-headed sign of the bhaihay ranch. you step into a time capsule, filled with old cash registers and phone graphs.
