Fare evader: At 2:50 a.m. Oct. 29, a cab driver picked up an inebriated man at Polk and Vallejo streets. When they arrived at the man’s home in the 100 block of Font Boulevard, he refused to pay the fare. The cab driver began to drive to a police station. At 19th Avenue and Vicente Street, the man started to strangle the cab driver. The cabdriver stopped and called police, and the man ran into a park after throwing a crumpled up $10 bill at the cab driver. Officers responded to the scene, located the man and arrested him on suspicion of assault and theft.

Walking into trouble: At 1:30 a.m. Oct. 28, a man was walking on 11th Avenue toward Cabrillo Street. A vehicle pulled up alongside the man and the passenger exited and pointed a gun at him. The armed passenger told the man to give up his bag, to which he complied. The robber got back in the car, which then fled north on 11th Avenue. The robber was a man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans. The vehicle was described as a dark, four-door sedan.

Just go with the flow: At 5:55 p.m. Nov. 1, officers were undercover on a Muni bus in the area of Mission and 30th streets when they noticed that there was a man drinking beer on the bus. The man was asked to exit the vehicle. He complied, but once outside he became agitated and began to yell at the officers. The officer advised the man that he was only going to be cited.
But the man began yelling and said he would not sign the citation. The officers allowed the man to relax before issuing the citation. The man was given a date to appear in court.
