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

Transgender thievery: A client entered into an agreement of sex for money with a transgender prostitute he had met at Post and Larkin streets at 2:30 a.m. Oct. 3. After the exchange took place in the victim’s residence on the 1200 block of Taylor Street, the prostitute took off with a computer, a wallet and cash. When last seen, the suspect was described as wearing a dark blue top, blue jeans and white high heels.

Showtime: Officers arrested a homeless individual who was exposing himself while he begged for money near Taylor and Jefferson streets at 3 p.m. Oct. 2. The suspect was determined to be a registered sex offender and therefore was charged with a felony in this case.

Mission

Mission district, Noe Valley

Shotwell shooting: A passer-by was standing on the corner of 15th and Shotwell streets when a red Geo mini-compact with three male occupants slowly drove up at 11:24 p.m. Oct. 1.

One passenger asked if he was a “scrap” and then pointed a silver revolver at him and fired several shots, hitting the victim in the foot.

Some detentions were made, but the victim could not identify his attackers.

Richmond

Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

SUV hater: A witness flagged police officers down at 2:29 a.m. Oct. 5 and pointed out a female suspect who had been scratching a sport utility vehicle parked down the street. The suspect was sitting on a curb nearby. Officers approached and saw that she was intoxicated.

When they attempted to detain her, she became belligerent and kicked one officer in the groin area. She continued to swear and kick until she was finally calmed down and handcuffed. A second witness arrived, telling officers he also saw the suspect damage another car and scratch the windows of several businesses on the block.

The suspect was charged with felony vandalism, battery on a police officer and resisting arrest.
