S.F. Police Blotter

These are excerpts from the San Francisco Police Department's daily log of activities. Incidents are listed by police precincts and the neighborhoods they patrol.

Richmond

Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

Burglary in progress: A neighbor reported seeing a strange man with a flashlight in the alleyway of a home on the 600 block of 45th Avenue at 10:42 p.m. Sept. 26. Sounds of glass breaking had been heard moments before.

The first officer arriving on the scene saw a broken window in the backyard. He heard footsteps inside and alerted the other responding officers that someone was still inside the home. Then the suspect climbed out the backyard window, apparently unaware of any police presence. He was taken into custody without a fight. The residents, who were out of town, were informed of the incident.

Mission district, Noe Valley

Robbery gang: A couple was returning to their car at Green and Sansome streets at 1:15 a.m. Sept. 16 when two vehicles pulled up alongside them. Three young men exited one of the vehicles and approached the victims demanding their valuables.

One suspect punched the male victim twice while another suspect threatened the victims with a baseball bat. The victims were robbed of a purse, wallet and camera.

Lights on: A vehicle was pulled over for driving without headlights in the area of Geary Boulevard and Hyde Street at 10:58 p.m. Sept. 27.
