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

Boat breached: Officers met with Pier 39 security personnel, who had arrested a subject after he boarded and entered a boat being used by a couple as their residence at 3:21 a.m. Feb. 3. The couple was awakened by the burglar and confronted him. The residents then called security, who responded and took the suspect into custody until the officers arrived. The suspect apparently entered into the boat’s cabin area through a door that may have been left unlocked.

Bayview

Bayview, Hunters Point

Chain gang: Officers were near Evans Avenue and Selby Street when they saw a car behind them with its headlights flashing. A witness told officers that someone was currently pulling a door off a warehouse using a white van and a large chain. Officers followed the witness and came upon the van at Rankin Street and Custer Avenue. They detained both suspects inside the van and found the chain used to pull the door off inside of the van. Both suspects were taken into custody at the scene.

Syringe-wielding shoplifter: Officers went to Safeway, on the 700 block of Taraval Street, where a shoplifter had been confronted by security after he had left the store at 11:40 p.m. Feb. 3. The shoplifter pulled out a syringe and threatened to infect the security officers. The employees surrounded the suspect and took him to the ground. The suspect, who lives on the 2100 block of Mission Street, was arrested for robbery, felony assault and possession of illegal narcotics.

Ingleside

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