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

Knock out posse: Patrol officers near the Western Addition housing projects on Ellis and Pierce streets at 11:46 a.m. Sept. 1 noticed a carload of gang members cruising the neighborhood. They recognized the driver as a young man who didn’t have a driver’s license, and made a traffic stop on the vehicle.

All five occupants were known gang members who had recently been evicted from MLK/Marcus Garvey Housing. Four of the offenders had “stay away” court orders which prohibited them from being in the area.

Four of the five suspects were taken into custody and booked for violating their court orders, effectively ruining any plans they might have had to revive their Knock Out Posse gang.

Ingleside

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

School bully: City College police arrested a resident of the 200 block of Dwight Street on suspicion of harassing a teacher and disturbing the peace in a classroom at 9 p.m. Aug. 27.

No quitter: A defendant who has been arrested three times in the past four months for auto burglaries made in No. 4 when he was identified by a witness of a new burglary on the 1-100 block of Dorland Street at 7:28 a.m. Aug. 26.

Central

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

Check bouncer: A Union Square beat officer responded and made a follow-up investigation of a fraud scheme where the 32-year-old male suspect used worthless checks to bilk a jeweler on the 200 block of Post Street out of several thousands of dollars in merchandise. At 1:17 p.m. Aug. 27, an arrest was made and 28 pieces of evidence were booked.

Mugged by woman: 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 and Columbus. The victim sustained small cuts to his face and reported the loss of his wallet and camera.
