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.

Bayview

Bayview, Hunters Point

Wrong way out: A citizen on Westbrook Court spotted some suspicious-looking people lurking about her block at 9:56 p.m. Dec. 11, and then saw them open the front window of the home across the street and climb inside. She quickly called the police. Officers arrived on scene at the same time the homeowner did, and she gave the police the key to her house. As the police opened the door from the outside, the suspects were opening the door from the inside. They noticed the police were at the door and tried to close it. Two suspects were caught inside the house, but one managed to escape. The two suspects had numerous pieces of jewelry and currency belonging to the victim on their person. They were booked for burglary and possession of stolen property. During the booking process one the suspects stated, “Can I keep the $48? That belongs to me.”

Central

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

Ready to rumble: At Columbus Avenue and Kearny Street, officers responded to a report of a fight at 2:22 a.m. Dec. 16. An off-duty member of the department was walking down Columbus with a female companion when he observed a fight involving about seven people. One man was kicking another man who was already on the ground, and several other people were exchanging punches. The off-duty officer identified himself and ordered the man to stop kicking the individual on the ground. Another person then struck the officer with a fist to the face. When the officer fell, the assault continued. Officers arrived quickly and were able to arrest those responsible for initiating the assaults.

Teenager stabbed: A stabbing was reported on the 300 block of Bay Street, and officers responded to the scene at 10:24 p.m. Dec. 17. The officers located a 14-year-old victim who had been stabbed once in the leg by one of a group of three male youths. The motive for the attack was unclear. The victim described the primary suspect as a 15- to 17-year-old man, wearing a black “hoodie” and dark pants, with a black bandanna over his face.
