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

Did someone call a cab? Officers met a man who, after an evening of cocktails in the Mission district, was robbed at gunpoint at 24th and Illinois streets at 8:42 p.m. Jan. 8. After leaving a bar at the corner of 16th and Mission streets, he noticed a car that circled the block a few times. The car pulled over, and the victim asked for a ride home. The victim got into the car, but he told the police that he was too intoxicated to remember the details.
