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.

Central

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

Bad trip: Citizens called 911 to report a man laying down in the intersection of Haight and Stanyan streets at 8:04 p.m. Aug. 26.

Officers arrived and found the subject lying in the middle of the intersection, yelling and screaming incoherently. He started to walk away as police approached. When stopped, he turned and punched an officer in the face. He became so violent that it took four officers several minutes of fighting in order to control him and place him in handcuffs.

The subject reportedly had taken eight hits of LSD, but was soon resting well at county jail.

Tenderloin

Tenderloin, bordered by Geary, Market and Larkin streets

Dragged by hair: Patrol officers around McAllister and Jones streets on Aug. 25 saw a man dragging a woman down the sidewalk by her hair. The woman said the man was her boyfriend and was dragging her out of her building after she told him she did not want to go.

The boyfriend was arrested and charged with kidnapping.

Ingleside

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

Unlicensed andgross: Officers observed a man urinating next to a vehicle with the engine running at 1:42 a.m. Aug. 28 on Mansell and Visitacion streets. The Gavin Street resident had no license for driving, so he was cited and his 1993 Toyota was towed.

Mission

Mission district, Noe Valley

Fast action: Officers responded to the report of an auto burglary in progress on 18th and Castro streets at 5 a.m. Aug. 31 and arrived quickly enough to find the suspect still inside the vehicle with a crowbar, trying to pop open the ignition.
