Too slow: While investigating a lost dog call near Shelley and Mansell streets at 12:12 p.m. Tuesday, officers observed a vehicle driving by them at 3 miles per hour, with one of the occupants drinking a beer. They stopped the vehicle and the driver, who lives on the 200 block of Argonaut Avenue and claimed he was out of gas. He was also driving with a suspended license. Hispassenger was cited for possession of narcotics paraphernalia.

Tenderloin

Beaten on next block: On Aug. 17 a male victim was beaten, kicked and had a chair thrown at him by an attacker on the 300 block of Leavenworth Street, who then told the victim he was “going to kill him.” Officers gathered information from the victim and searched the area where the suspect was last seen. In a very thorough search, the suspect was found a block away, arrested and booked.

Coke bonus: Officers working the Broadway midnight detail on Aug. 26 were citing two individuals for open alcohol containers when they heard noises coming from the garage on the 400 block of Broadway.

I’m a violator: Officers recognized a parolee they knew in the neighborhood of Mary and Minna streets at 2:15 a.m. Aug. 27.
