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

Break yourself: A woman was confronted by two men as she approached the front gate of an apartment complex on the 700 block of Pacific Avenue at 1 a.m. Sept. 18. One man produced a gun and held it to her waist, ordering her to “break yourself.” He then removed a $20 bill from the victim’s pants pocket and fled with his accomplice onto Stockton Street.

Richmond

Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

Surfers targeted: Numerous vehicles have been reported stolen in the area of the Great Highway between Balboa Street and Lincoln Way.

Many victims are surfers who hide their keys somewhere on the exterior of the car while they are out catching waves. The unknown suspects target vehicles either by looking for surf racks or by observing the victims. Most of these stolen cars are recovered the same day, parked within a few blocks.

The thieves’ strategy is to burglarize personal property from the vehicle at leisure and then flee the area.

Tenderloin

Tenderloin, bordered by Geary, Market and Larkin streets

Gang territory: Several gang members were loitering in the 300 block of Leavenworth Street on Sept. 14 when a 911 call reported that one of these individuals was carrying a firearm.

Tenderloin officers responded and detained several gang bangers. One suspect admitted to carryinga loaded firearm. Also in his possession were several rocks of crack cocaine.

He was booked on gun and drug charges.

Mission

Mission district, Noe Valley

Prostitution kidnapping: A woman called police at 2:45 a.m. Sept. 18 and reported that she had been kidnapped in Oakland and driven to the Mission district to work as a prostitute on 17th Street and South Van Ness Avenue.
