Man arrested for alleged hate crime during SF Pride

A 50-year-old man was arrested for assaulting and threatening to kill a pair of woman during San Francisco’s Pride weekend, according to police.

The pair of 21-year-old female victims were walking along Market Street near Fifth Street around 11 a.m. Sunday when Emmanuel Morancy allegedly pushed one of them into the other.

Morancy then raised his fist and “threatened to kill them because of their sexual orientation,” police said.

A bystander and the victim’s girlfriend then stepped between Morancy and the woman he had pushed before the assailant walked away.

A Tenderloin Station foot patrol officer located Morancy about a half-hour later near Mason and Market streets, and detained him based on a description they had been given.

The pair of victims then identified Morancy, who was booked into County Jail on suspicion of criminal threats, battery and hate crime enhancements.

Second SF Pride hate crime under investigation

In an unrelated incident that same day in the Mission District, a 25-year-old man was shot in the hand by a passing car after being called a homophobic slur.

The victim was walking on 22nd Street near York Street when one of several male occupants in a passing car yelled a slur at the man. After a bang came from the car, he felt a pain in his right hand as the vehicle sped away. The victim believes he was shot in the hand with a BB-type weapon.

Police have yet to arrest anyone in relation to the crime and are asking anyone with knowledge of the incident to call the SFPD anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444 or to text “Tip” to TIP411.
