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.

Richmond

Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

Aggressive panhandling: Someone walking on Sutter Street near Pierce Street on the way to a friend’s house nearby at 1:05 p.m. March 20 was approached by a man who asked him for $1. The victim told the suspect that he had no money and continued walking. When the victim got to the front of his friend’s house, the suspect started punching him from behind but was unable to get the victim’s wallet.

Bayview

Bayview, Hunters Point

Wallet scam: A 79-year-old Outer Mission district woman was approached by another woman on the 3300 block of Mission Street at 2 p.m. March 19. The second woman showed the first woman a wallet with money in it and said she had found it and needed help returning the wallet. A man joined them and said the money was good but that the first woman needed to leave collateral to help in returning the wallet. The first woman surrendered all her cash and jewelry as collateral. She left the man and woman to seek a reward from a third party. The third party was nowhere to be found, and neither were the man and woman. The loss equaled $1,784.
