Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

To-go order: On the 3300 block of Balboa Street, a suspect gained entry into a restaurant between 9 p.m. Feb. 15 and 6:20 a.m. Feb. 16 by prying open a window. The suspect took a small amount of cash.

Reinforced fist: A Union Square beat officer approached a suspect on the corner of 500 Post St. at 2 p.m. Feb. 22 on a complaint that he was an aggressive panhandler. The officer asked the suspect to put down a newspaper that he held and heard a “clank” that newspapers do not usually make. Further investigation revealed metal knuckles, a prohibited weapon. The suspect was arrested for felony possession.

Unyielding: An officer stopped a motorist for failing to yield to a pedestrian at Geneva Avenue and Mission Street at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 25.

Her car was impounded.

Taraval

You saw my blinker: Officers investigated a road-rage incident at Alemany Boulevard and Capitol Avenue, where a suspect had gotten into an altercation with a victim and attacked his face, causing an injury to one of his eyes at 5:45 p.m. Feb. 25.
