Knife play: Officers were dispatched to a bar on First Street on May 4 regarding a drunken man inside the bar playing with a knife. The officers detained the man, who also had numerous packages of cocaine.

Drug bust: Officers conducted a narcotics operation near Market and Mason streets May 5, arrested two suspects and seized narcotics and cash. The dealer was 15 years old and had more than $150 when arrested.

Ingleside

Glen Park, Bernal Heights, Excelsior, St. Francis Wood

Citizens’ arrest: A Bernal Heights man parked his car on the 100 block of Kingston Street and locked it at 1:20 a.m. May 4. Fifteen minutes later, he heard his car’s alarm. He and a friend found another man sitting in the car. Its right rear window was shattered. The man in the car ran away, and the two friends gave chase. They captured the 26-year-old burglar and held him for police.

Park

Cole Valley, Haight, Castro, Twin Peaks, Panhandle

Bitten: Officers responded to a doctors office at 6:30 p.m. May 7 on a dog bite report. When they arrived, they were told that as a woman walked on 47th Avenue, a dog attacked her. She received several lacerations on her leg that required suturing. Further investigation showed that this was the third time the dog had bitten someone. The case was sent to a vicious-and-dangerous dog hearing at the Department of Public Health.

Bayview

Car chase: Members of Bayview’s plainclothes team were near Bayshore Boulevard at 11:50 a.m. May 8 when they saw a vehicle that had been involved in a robbery on another date.

Officers placed the driver under arrest and searched the vehicle, locating narcotics on the dashboard.
