S.F. Police Blotter: Neighborhood crime log

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.

Bayview

Bayview, Hunters Point

Not a Charger fan: A man was reportedly running down the street with a blue Dodge Charger driving in reverse on his tail at 18th at Missouri streets at 9:49 p.m. Jan. 9. An officer in the area heard two gunshots and saw the man duck for cover, then run into a nearby restaurant. The Dodge turned around and began to flee toward the freeway. The officer gave chase but lost the car at the freeway interchange. The man on the run was not harmed during the encounter. The victim told officers that he was outside when the Charger pulled up and the suspect asked him directions to a store. The suspect allegedly produced a gun and the victim fled on foot. The victim heard shots as he ran and assumed the suspect was shooting at him.

Southern

South of Market, China Basin, Embarcadero

Poor getaway: A suspicious person was spotted near a parked vehicle on Jan. 10. The person backed away from the car and dropped a bag. Nearby officers saw that the window of the car had been smashed. The suspect, who attempted to ride away on a bicycle, resisted arrest and allegedly threw the bike at the officer, striking him near the legs. The officer fell to the ground, cutting his hands and knees. The suspect fled on foot, but the injured officer, still hurting from his injuries, chased the suspect and placed him in custody. The owner of the vehicle was notified and all of the stolen property was returned. The suspect was wanted on a parole violation and was on court probation for breaking into vehicles.

Central

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

Alleged burglary: Officers passing through the Tenderloin on the 300 block of Ellis in an unmarked car, observed a suspect attempting to force his way into a parked vehicle at 5:56 p.m. Jan. 14. After arresting the suspect, the officers learned that the suspect was using a screwdriver in an attempt to pry open the driver’s door. The suspect was due to appear in court the next morning for sentencing of a recent auto burglary conviction.
