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.

Tenderloin

Tenderloin, bordered by Geary, Market and Larkin streets

Bashed by bottle: On Aug. 21, a man was hit over the head with a glass bottle on the 300 block of Ellis Street. When officers arrived, the victim was unconscious and bleeding profusely, making it impossible to obtain any information from him. Officers did, however, receive several detailed accounts from eyewitnesses, which soon led to arrest of the suspect while the victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment.

Richmond

Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

BB bluffer gang: Four suspects were arrested Aug. 24 in connection with three strong-arm robberies on Ninth, 19th and 34th avenues between 10:45 and 11:20 p.m. Each time, a lone victim walking down the street had a gun (later determined to be a BB pistol) pointed at him while surrounded by accomplices.

The victims then gave up property and the suspects fled in a gold-colored sedan. Numerous police converged to locate the suspect vehicle on Eighth Avenue and Cabrillo Street. Identified by victims, three adult males and one juvenile were charged. The arrestees are also under investigation for robberies occurring earlier that month.

Central

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

Devil on Haight: Officers were called to Haight and Divisadero streets at 2:16 p.m. Aug. 25 on the report of a man wearing red devil horns and armed with a knife. A beat officer came across the devil, who had a 12-inch handsaw tucked in his waistband.

He was a very drunken devil, so officers arrested him. At the station he claimed he was having a major heart attack, whereupon an ambulance was called and he was carted away for medical help — minus his saw.

Robbery arrest: Officers apprehended a robbery suspect at Taylor and Vallejo streets at 8:40 a.m. Aug. 20. The victim said that a transient approached him and demanded money. When refused, the suspect punched the victim with a closed fist until he turned over some cash.
