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

Hot moped: An employee of a Haight Street business called police on Aug. 26 to report that someone had stolen his motor scooter. The moped had been customized and was extremely unusual in its design.

On Sept. 2 the victim reported that he had seen his moped for sale on the Internet. A sergeant called the listed phone number and contacted the seller, obtaining his true name and agreeing to meet with him to look at the moped. A computer check revealed that the suspect had been arrested on prior occasions on suspicion of theft. Two plainclothesmen went to the suspect’s house in the Mission district, posing as purchasers and agreed to buy the moped. As soon as the agreement was made, the suspect and his accomplice were arrested.

Ingleside

Glen Park, Bernal Heights, Excelsior, St. Francis Wood

Felony loitering: A number of suspects were loitering outside a residence on the 100 block of Highland Avenue at 10:50 p.m. Sept. 1, with one urinating on the property. The resident repeatedly asked the suspects to leave, so one loiterer lured the victim from his residence and hit him on the arm with a metal pipe before breaking the door’s glass. The group fled the area, but officers identified the suspect from the victim’s description. The suspect was located, identified and arrested on suspicion of felony assault, burglary and malicious mischief.

Central

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

Five fight busts: At 2:10 a.m. Sept. 2, officers quelled a large fight in a parking lot on the 400 block of Broadway Street. Five individuals were arrested for fighting and assault on a police officer, whose jacket was ripped.

Mugged by lady: A fellow walked into Central Station at 3 a.m. Sept. 2 to report that he had been assaulted and robbed by a female at Broadway Street and Columbus Avenue. The victim sustained small cuts to his face and reported the loss of his wallet and camera.
