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.

Mission

Mission district, Noe Valley

Stubborn fugitive: Officers were flagged down by a resident regarding a trespasser who was refusing to leave a business on the 100 block of Shotwell Street at 11:17 a.m. Sept. 13. The trespasser was found seated in a dark office and placed into custody. Investigation revealed that he was in possession of burglary tools and narcotics paraphernalia — not to mention he was also a wanted parolee.

Central

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

FBI to the rescue: An off-duty FBI agent from Erie, Pa., observed a classic bump-and-pickpocket crime in front of him on a cable car near Pier 39 at 4 p.m. Sept. 13. Two males in their 40s worked together against a standing victim. As the trolley came to a stop, one suspect bent over in front of the victim and bumped into him. The second suspect bumped him from behind and lifted his wallet in the process. The vacationing agent followed the team off the trolley and confronted them as they tried to get away in a taxicab.

GTA arrest: Chinatown beat Officers Yuen and Lam observed a young male unsuccessfully attempting to open a parked car with a key at 10:30 p.m. Sept. 12. They saw that he became startled when he saw them. Investigation revealed that the vehicle was not his and he was also in possession of a crowbar and other burglary tools.

Ingleside

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

Parked drunk: A driver was parked in a bus zone on the 1100 block of Persia Avenue at 10:06 p.m. Sept. 9. When a police officer asked him to move, further inspection revealed that the driver was intoxicated. Officers then arrested the resident of the 1700 block of La Salle Avenue for drunken driving with a suspended license.

Dragnet arrest: Seven officers were looking for a suspect who had fired shots at another individual on Sept. 6. They spotted the suspect on the 200 block of Hahn Street at 5 p.m. Sept. 8 and took him into custody. The resident of the 400 block of Argonaut Ave. was arrested for the shooting, trespassing and a gang affiliation.
