SF man arrested at public housing unit on weapons charge 

A convicted felon was arrested on suspicion of possession of an AK-47 assault rifle and related child endangerment at the Alice Griffith public housing complex in San Francisco's Bayview district Tuesday morning.

The Police Department served a search warrant at a home on Cameron Way near Nichols Way about 9:15 a.m. Tuesday, following a brief surveillance period, said Officer Grace Gatpandan.

The occupants of the home were all detained while officers searched the residence, she said.

Police located an AK-47 assault rifle in the home and determined that the gun belonged to 52-year-old San Francisco resident Randall Bass, Gatpandan said.

Bass was arrested on suspicion of numerous assault weapon violations and child endangerment, she said.

No other suspects were detained.

Bass is a convicted felon and therefore prohibited from possessing firearms, according to police. The AK-47 was also determined to be an unregistered short-barreled rifle, which is illegal.

Gatpandan said Bass was additionally arrested on suspicion of child endangerment because he had an illegal, unsecured weapon in a residence with children.

Bass also has a warrant for about $1,700 in unpaid traffic tickets.
