Cops contend with unusual suspects

Paranoia is causing floods and alien invasions in San Francisco.

On Thursday afternoon, a 30-year-old man in the 1600 block of 15th Street told cops that he is a federal agent “who had been abducted by aliens,” police said.

The aliens had “changed his internal organs,” the man insisted.

The man was placed on a 72-hour mental health watch, cops said.

Three hours later, a 53-year-old man flooded a downstairs apartment while taking a long shower in a residence near 25th and Guerrero streets.

The man said he “was trying to clean himself ‘of the poison,’” police said.

He allowed his shower to overflow to the point that water flowed into the downstairs apartment, police said.

The man was also admitted for a 72-hour mental health evaluation.
