A 20-year-old woman said she was approached at Sansome and Vallejo streets by a male who appeared to be about 18 to 20 years old.

Tantrum: Officers were dispatched to a dispute at a bar on Valencia Street on April 14. When the officers arrived, they saw a man lying on the ground bleeding from the face and the bar’s front window smashed.

The officers determined that a patron was not allowed inside the bar because he was too intoxicated. When he left, he used a bicycle chain to break the bar’s front window. The bar’s doorman went outside and confronted the suspect, who then turned the chain on the doorman, nearly striking him with it. The doorman detained the suspect until police arrived.

FILE — Mort Sahl on Nov. 10, 1967. Sahl, who confronted Eisenhower-era cultural complacency with acid stage monologues, delivering biting social commentary in the guise of a stand-up comedian and thus changing the nature of both stand-up comedy and social commentary, died on Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021, at his home in Mill Valley, Calif., near San Francisco. He was 94. (Don Hogan Charles/The New York Times)
