Tenderloin woman battles drug-dealing creep who wanted more than kiss

A Tenderloin woman said an alleged drug-dealing dope assaulted and sexually harassed her after she took her garbage out on Monday, police said.

The woman had returned from taking out the garbage and saw the suspect, who also lives in the building, on her way back. The alleged creep grabbed her, tried to force her into his apartment and kissed her but she managed to get away, police said.

But the suspect did not quit, finally forcing his way into her apartment. The victim said she knew he had a gun and feared for her life. The creep grabbed her by the neck and squeezed, police said.

“You don’t understand how this works?” he said.

The victim grabbed a stick in self-defense and ran out of the apartment, where she found police. She showed the cops her injuries and another resident confirmed the suspect was a known drug dealer who carried a gun, police said.

Police responded to the suspect’s apartment and were let in. Once inside a search revealed methamphetamine in a clear plastic bag and nearly $600, cops said.

He was booked for aggravated assault, terrorist threats and possession of methamphetamine, police said.
