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.

Taraval

Sunset, Parkside, portions of Golden Gate Park

Shoplifting: Officers went to a shop in Stonestown, where a suspect had shoplifted some electronic items at 6 p.m. April 6. The resident of the 4300 block of California Street was cited.

Tagger takedown: Officers on patrol at Capitol Avenue and Lobos Street at 7:43 p.m. April 6 spotted a juvenile with a spray-paint can raising his arm to spray graffiti on a wall. The suspect saw the officers and ran to a nearby store. The officers chased and tried to detain the suspect, but the boy’s father intervened, trying to block the officers. The boy violently resisted arrest and had to be taken to the ground.

All the while, the father and son yelled obscenities and struck the officers. With the assistance of additional officers, both suspects were subdued and arrested on suspicion of battery and resisting arrest. The boy’s telephone had photos of graffiti, including a recent marking on a parked San Francisco Police Department patrol car.
