San Francisco Police Blotter

These are excerpts from the San Francisco Police Department's neighborhood log of activities.

Taraval: Sunset, Parkside, portions of Golden Gate Park

Concealed weapon: Officers on patrol at Arch Street and Brotherhood Way at 6:37 p.m. Nov. 1 observed a person on the median. As the officers approached, the person suddenly stepped off the median and sprinted away in the middle of traffic. Both officers gave chase on foot and observed that the suspect was holding his hands near his waistband as if he were concealing something. The suspect stopped at Alemany Boulevard and Bright Street and hid behind a car but then took off running again. He then pulled a firearm from his waistband and threw it to the ground. Other officers assisted in detaining the suspect as he fell to the ground. The suspect violently resisted arrest. The officers recovered a large amount of cocaine from the plastic bag and a loaded revolver.

The suspect, who resides on the 1500 block of Quesada Avenue and has multiple prior felony arrests, was charged with narcotics and weapons violations.

Richmond: Richmond, most of Golden Gate Park

Parole violation: An auto burglar recently released from prison was seen in Golden Gate Park on Oct. 26. It appeared that the suspect was going to flee, but he recognized the plainclothesmen from his previous arrests and gave up without incident. He was arrested for the violation of the stay-away order and a parole warrant.

Tenderloin: Tenderloin, bordered by Geary, Market and Larkin streets

Potentially deadly assault: On the 400 block of Ellis Street at 2:35 a.m. Oct. 21, four men (two adults and two youths) approached a 38-year-old man on the street allegedly to rob him, and during an ensuing struggle the victim was shot in the chest with a handgun. The assailants fled, two in a car and two on foot. With the help of several witnesses, officers arrested all four suspects. All have been charged with robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and conspiracy. In addition, the two juveniles (15 and 17 years old) were charged with resisting arrest. The victim, a parolee with a history of drug dealing, lives in the city of Richmond.
