A San Francisco resident kept a would-be burglar on the ground early Wednesday until police arrived by saying he was armed with a gun at his three-story flat near UCSF Medical Center.
The 32-year-old resident woke up just after midnight to someone banging on the laundry room door connected to his flat near Woodland and Parnassus avenues, Officer Grace Gatpandan said. When the culprit opened the door, the resident told him to get on his knees because he had a gun.
The attempted burglar listened and waited in a prone position on the hallway floor until police arrived.
Responding officers arrested 34-year-old Dallas Scheller, a Colorado resident, on suspicion of felony burglary.
