S.F. Police Blotter: Neighborhood crime log

A log of daily events from the San Francisco Police Department.

Mission

Mission district, Noe Valley

Stabbing: A youth was at the bus stop at 16th and Mission streets at 1:30 a.m. Aug. 19 when he was approached by three suspects who asked what he “claimed.” He boldly stated he was into gangs and a “tagger.” A physical fight ensued and the victim was slashed across his stomach. The three attackers escaped and the victim was treated at General Hospital.

Park

Cole Valley, Haight, Castro, Twin Peaks, Panhandle

Happy dazed: A KOP gang member threatened to shoot up the Happy Daze Medical Marijuana Dispensary, 607 Divisadero St., at 1:40 p.m. Aug. 18. He had been refused entry by the front-door security guard. The gangbanger then pulled up his shirt and displayed a semiautomatic pistol tucked into his front waistband. The security guard quickly closed the door and called police. The suspect left while the police were en route, but an hour later a plainclothes officer observed him again loitering outside the business. After being arrested, the gangbanger continued to make death threats against the security guard.

Southern

South of Market, China Basin, Embarcadero

Transbay tussle: A security guard intervened in a fight inside the Transbay Terminal at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 19. The aggressor turned on the guard and struck him in the chest with a closed fist. An officer responded to the scene and searched the neighborhood with the guard. They found the assailant at Mission and Fremont streets. The Oakland man was arrested for battery and a knife was found in his waistband.

Richmond

Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

Multiple robberies: Between Aug. 14 and 17, there were four reported strong-arm robberies along Lincoln Way in the vicinities of 47th Avenue and Martin Luther King Drive. All four occurred between 8 and 9:30 p.m., with the victims being lone male adult pedestrians. In each robbery, a group of six young males physically assaulted the victims and took their property.

A similar robbery occurred there at 10:20 p.m. Aug. 20, but several witnesses observed the incident, followed the robbers and led officers directly to where three suspects could be arrested.
