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.

Park

Cole Valley, Haight, Castro, Twin Peaks, Panhandle

Concealed weapons, public beer: Foot patrol officers saw a street lounger drinking a beer while sitting on the sidewalk in front of 1432 Haight St., at 11:10 p.m. Sept. 8.

While citing him for drinking in public, the officers asked if he had any weapons on him and he mentioned that he had a knife in his sweater.

In fact, he apparently forgot that he had two knives, both illegal to possess in California, thus earning himself a trip to jail.

Mission

Mission district, Noe Valley

Quit while ahead: Neighbors called in a report of an auto burglary that had just occurred on the 1100 block of South Van Ness Avenue at 6 a.m.Sept. 4.

Officers searched the area for the suspect, who had just fled.

He was located nearby while in the process of burglarizing yet another vehicle, and was taken into custody.

Richmond

Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

Weekend burglaries: Sometime during the Sept. 8-9 weekend, a burglar gained entry into a building on the 600 block of 32nd Avenue by climbing through a transom window.

He stole a television set and a DVD player.

And sometime during the afternoon of Sept. 9, a burglar on the 2900 block of California Street gained entry into an apartment by climbing the scaffolding of the building and, most likely, going through a window to steal a computer.

Central

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

Naked man: Officers responded to the 1-100 block of Joyce Alley at 1 a.m. Sept. 7 to find a 52-year-old male naked and acting in an obscene manner.

A woman resident had called police in fear that the stranger might have forced entry into her building.
