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

Help, police: A police officer saw a man yelling profanities and pounding his fists onto the hood and windows of a car near the intersection of Post and Kearny streets at 10:26 a.m. Sept. 18. As the car inched forward in an attempt to escape, the irate individual continued to punch the hood with his fists. As the officer approached in full uniform, the man began yelling, “Police, police! Someone call the police.”

A physical struggle ensued and the officer wrestled the man to the ground, but he felt the subject attempting to remove the firearm from his holster. With the assistance of a passing citizen, the disoriented individual was handcuffed and arrested. It was soon determined that the individual is on active probation from Contra Costa County and his previous arrests include threatening/resisting a peace officer and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

Stabbing stopped: Passers-by on the 1900 block of Divisadero Street broke up the knife assault on a female victim at 3:07 p.m. Sept. 19. The attacker pushed the victim onto the hood of a vehicle and stabbed her in the neck, presumably in an attempt to steal her purse. Witnesses observed him repeatedly stabbing at the victim. One yelled at the suspect and scared him away. Another witness gave chase but lost him. Several passers-by aided the victims until paramedics arrived.

Numerous police units responded and an area search located the suspect. A 31-year-old man was identified by witnesses and charged with attempted homicide.
