S.F. woman arrested in vehicular attack on Bayview security guard 

A San Francisco woman was arrested in the Bayview on Saturday on multiple charges, including attempted murder, after allegedly intentionally hitting a security guard with her car, police Sgt. Danielle Newman said.

Lataya Robinson, 27, was reportedly outside a housing complex in the 2000 block of McKinnon Avenue about 11:20 p.m. Friday night causing a commotion, Newman said. The 43-year-old victim, a male security guard at the complex, came outside to see what the commotion was about.

Robinson allegedly attempted to throw a brick through a building window when the guard asked her who she was and who she was there to see, Newman said. Robinson gave the guard a name and he went into the building to find that person.

That person wasn't available but the security guard was advised that Robinson was not welcome at the housing complex, Newman said.

The guard went back outside and asked Robinson to leave, Newman said, when she reportedly became belligerent and threatened the security guard, swearing at him and threatening to kill him.

The guard then tried to call police on his cellphone and Robinson allegedly grabbed his phone and threw it into the street, breaking it, Newman said. The guard went into the street to retrieve his phone and as he was trying to put it back together, Robinson allegedly got into her car, put it in reverse and tried to strike the security guard.

The guard was able to jump out of the way but Robinson then allegedly aimed the vehicle at him and accelerated at a high speed toward him, striking him with the right front end of the vehicle, Newman said. The guard rolled onto the hood and Robinson reportedly sped up and the guard fell off the vehicle to the street.

Robinson then reportedly did a u-turn and accelerated back toward the victim's location, Newman said. He was able to crawl between two parked cars, which Robinson reportedly struck before driving into a concrete barrier on McKinnon Avenue.

When police arrived, about 1:45 a.m. Saturday, Robinson was still on the scene and she was arrested. She was booked on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, felony vandalism, threats, felony drunken driving, damaging a phone to prevent a call for help, driving on a suspended license and a basic speeding violation, Newman said.

The victim was taken to the hospital with what was originally believed to be life threatening injuries, but he was also able to speak with police, recounting the whole incident.
