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.

Central

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

FSunglass raid: A group of eight men and women rushed into a retail store in Embarcadero Center at 1:38 p.m. Oct. 3 and stole 165 pairs of sunglasses with an approximate retail value of $64,400. They fled in two getaway vehicles waiting nearby.

Hooked on video: The Vice Detail arrested a woman and detained an associate on Polk and California streets for loitering with the intent to engage in prostitution at 3 a.m. Oct. 6. The woman’s activities were videotaped prior to her arrest in hopes of improving chances for a successful prosecution.

Still steals: A male suspect was witnessed burglarizing a parked vehicle on Lombard and Sansome streets at 2 a.m. Oct. 1. Four officers traced the suspect a few blocks away and arrested him. He was found to have an outstanding warrant, a long history of theft and burglary arrests, and was on active probation for burglary.

Mission

Mission district, Noe Valley

Bogus sex mugging: Officers were flagged down on 16th and Mission streets by a victim, who stated that while he waited for the bus at 12:55 a.m. Oct. 4, a female came up to him and asked if he would like to go into Weise Alley and have sex for $50. The victim liked this offer and walked into the alley, where a male came up from behind and elbowed him in the mouth, taking the victim’s money from a pocket. The female also reached into his pocket, but did not find anything. The victim pointed out the bogus prostitute when he first encountered the officers. She was arrested and found to have a current stay-away order for 16th and Mission streets.

Spray-paint run: As dawn rose over 24th and Hampshire streets at 6:47 a.m. Oct. 6, plainclothes officers saw two men running to their car with spray-paint cans. They detained the duo before they could escape and determined that they had just spray-painted graffiti on a wall and a Port-a-Potty. The suspects admitted to the crime and wrote statements admitting what they did. Their backpacks were also loaded with spray paint.
