Police set up perimeter in Dogpatch in search for suspects

San Francisco and Oakland police set up a perimeter Wednesday afternoon searching for suspects near 19th and Indiana streets in The City’s Dogpatch neighborhood.

Details are preliminary, and police did not specify the crimes the suspects are sought for, or how many are wanted. About 3:15 p.m., the suspects bailed from a vehicle near the Mariposa Street exit near Highway 101, according to San Francisco Police Department spokesman Carlos Manfredi.

As of 5 p.m. the area remained closed to traffic. Police appeared to have two people detained at the scene.

A spokesperson for the Oakland police did not release much more information about the incident.

“The Oakland Police Department is the primary investigating agency. We are currently being assisted by the San Francisco Police Department and CHP in an area search for several suspects in connection with an open investigation. At this time we are not releasing any additional information,” said a statement from the department.
