Bayview

Out of my way: An officer on Market Street on Dec. 23 saw a woman harassing people for money. The woman yelled obscenities at him, then ran toward him with a lit cigarette in her hand attempting to push her way past him. The officer hurt his shoulder while containing this person while backup was on its way.

Southern

Car robbery: Two people were robbed on Sixth Street about 4:30 a.m. Jan. 13 by a group of youths as they were getting into their car. One of the victims was robbed of her purse. Hearing the broadcast of the fleeing youths, an officer located them nearby in the Tenderloin. Even though most of the valuables taken were not recovered, the victim in this case wavered about whether or not she wished to press charges.

Handgun holdup: A man who had been robbed at gunpoint met with police officers at Francisco and Taylor at 8:55 p.m. Jan. 7.

Aggressive Walgreen’s shoplifters: Officers responded to the Walgreen’s on the 700 block of Van Ness Ave. at 4 p.m. Jan. 5. Employees were fighting with two shoplifters they were trying to detain. Officers arrived and detained the suspects. One of the employees suffered a puncture wound to his left shoulder when he tried to detain the male suspect. The female suspect became enraged that her “man” was stopped by the employees. The female suspect pulled a knife from her purse and stabbed the victim in the shoulder. Officers placed both the suspects under arrest and located the knife the suspect used. The victim was transported to a nearby hospital and treated. Both suspects were booked.
