Police blotter: Feb. 19, 2010 


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

Bumper cars: At 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, two officers were on patrol when they heard a report of a hit-and-run in a parking lot near them. When they arrived at Seneca and Mission streets, the officers learned that the driver of one car had been battered by the occupants of another after he rammed their car. After being punched a few times, he then tried to run down one of the other men with his car. Everyone involved was booked on battery- and assault-related charges.

Upset: At 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, an officer responded to Cortland Avenue and Elsie Street following a report of threats being made to another person.

The victim was talking with an elderly client who had been the victim of a theft a few days before. The client’s caregiver walked by and made a threatening motion to the victim. The suspect apparently was upset that the victim had helped the elderly client close her bank account.



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

Knock-knock: At 11:26 p.m. Feb. 6, a man was at home in his apartment in the 100 block of Columbus Avenue when he heard a loud noise. He went to check it out and saw three men who had forced open the door to an apartment. The trio was startled by the neighbor and ran away.

Cable lie? Between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. Feb. 9, an apartment building in the 1300 block of Leavenworth Street experienced eight burglaries. No forced entries were found on any of the apartments in question. In one apartment, the resident heard her front door open and went to see who it was. She saw a man with a green fluorescent vest standing inside her apartment. She asked him what he was doing and he said he was a worker with Comcast, smiled, apologized and left. The man apparently was using a pass key to enter the apartments. He was described as a black man, 30 to 35 years old, 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds with black hair.

Helping hand: On Feb. 8, a report of a robbery was made at McAllister and Leavenworth streets. The two responding officers found the victim, who was bleeding from his nose and had two swollen, black eyes from the assault. A witness told the officers that he knew the victim because he shops at the flea market at U.N. Plaza. Four males had been observed punching and kicking the man as he laid on the ground. One suspect grabbed the man’s backpack and headed north on Jones Street. Officers found the suspect, whom the victim was able to confirm was the person who attacked him.

Screen saver: On Feb. 8, two officers went to the 200 block of Golden Gate Avenue on a report of a laptop

Going down swinging: At 2:48 a.m. Feb. 6, two officers stopped a drunk man who was combative toward another person. The man violently resisted officers’ attempts to subdue him. He was charged with battery on a peace officer.

Not happy: At 12:25 a.m., four officers responded to 22nd and Capp streets following a report of an aggravated assault. The suspect apparently tried to run over a bouncer.
