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.

Financial District, Nob Hill, Chinatown, North Beach, Russian Hill, Telegraph Hill

Nitery crime wave: Counterfeit currency was passed at an adult entertainment club on the 400 block of Broadway at 10:40 p.m. Sept. 29. A pole-dancing aficionado was arrested with two counterfeit $100 bills in his possession. After 2:30 a.m. closing time the same night, unknown burglars broke into a nightclub on the 500 block of Broadway and stole 15 cases of liquor plus a locked safe with all its contents.

Taraval

Sunset, Parkside, portions of Golden Gate Park

Run over: A wanted parolee attempted to drive down officers with his vehicle at 23rd Avenue and Pacheco Street at 4:30 p.m. Oct. 7. A search of a related residence on the 100 block of Caine Street did not produce the hoped-for capture.

Mission

Mission district, Noe Valley

Armed and active: Two victims were in front of their house at 571 Shotwell St. when they were approached by three male suspects at 1:39 a.m. Oct. 2. Two suspects pointed guns at them and demanded money, which they received. Some 40 minutes later, a victim on 23rd and Treat streets had just parked his car and was putting items in his trunk when possibly the same two armed robbers took his wallet and cell phone.

Southern

South of Market, China Basin, Embarcadero

Shootings at Southern: Arrests have been made in two of the district’s three September shootings. A dispute in the gas station on 1000 Harrison St. at 12:48 a.m. Sept. 15 resulted in a shooting and arrest, as did a robbery gone bad in 68 Howard St. at 8:01 p.m. Sept. 20. But no arrests have been made yet in connection with a robbery and shooting at 1023 Market St. at 6:40 p.m. Sept. 29. Police made 168 felony arrests last month. Four suspects were taken into custody from three successful undercover anti-robbery operations where attempts were made to rob police officers acting as decoys.
