Police arrest man they say took captive 

A stakeout at the Transbay Terminal led to the arrest of a man who had held his ex-girlfriend prisoner for two days in the Haight, allegedly repeatedly raping her.

San Francisco police arrested Denton Geiger, 42, a white male San Francisco resident, on the morning of Nov. 19 after receiving information that he planned to leave The City.

Geiger allegedly spent Nov. 16 through Nov. 18 holding his ex-girlfriend captive in their former home, where he beat and raped the woman, according to police.

The District Attorney’s Office has charged Geiger with attempted murder, five counts of rape, oral copulation, terrorist threats and kidnapping for the purpose of rape. His bail was set at $1 million and he will be arraigned Tuesday.

Geiger allegedly approached the victim on Haight as she sold marijuana and persuaded her to go to their former home, police said.

The victim escaped on Nov. 18 when an acquaintance entered the residence and intervened as she fled to a neighbor’s house.
