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.

Central

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

Assault: Officers heard about an assault on the 600 block of Jackson Street at 4:35 p.m. April 20. The officers located two juveniles with stab wounds to their legs. The suspects were reported as four to six boys. The officers located BB guns and a knife at the scene. The injuries were not life threatening.

False imprisonment: Officers responded to the 700 block of Geary Street at 1:30 p.m. April 20 on a tip from the Nevada County Sheriff’s Department. The complicated scheme involving possible kidnapping and false imprisonment and assault resulted in one 19-year-old victim rescued and one suspect captured. The suspect was charged with robbery, assault, false imprisonment and possession of suspected crystal methamphetamine.

Northern

Pacific Heights, Marina, Japantown, Polk Gulch

Robbery: Officers were handling another call when a victim ran up to them April 14 and said he had been robbed at gunpoint. The officers got all the information from the victim and broadcast the information on the radio. The officers placed the victim in the back of their patrol car and searched for the suspect. As they searched the area, the victim saw a person he believed might have been the suspect. The person was detained. One officer searched the suspect and found a toy gun in his pants pocket. The victim could not positively identify the subject, so he was not arrested for the robbery, but was arrested for an outstanding warrant and the possession of an air gun.

Southern

South of Market, China Basin, Embarcadero

Escalator escapade: Officers responded to the BART station at Powell and Market streets April 16 regarding a robbery attempt. The victim told the officers she was taking a picture of her family on the escalators when a woman attempted to grab the camera from her hands. The victim injured her wrist, and the suspect was taken into custody with the assistance of two BART police officers who were nearby.
