The driver of a Ford pick-up was headed south on 24th Ave when he sideswiped four parked cars. He then fled the scene, but an alert witness called the SFPD. Officers found the driver a short distance away and arrested him.

Geary & 25th Ave

JFK west of Chain of Lakes
At about 9:15 AM on 10/03/2015 a passerby found the body of Audrey Carey, a young woman visiting San Francisco from Quebec. A few days later, there was a homicide in Marin County that bore similarities to our Golden Gate Park case. Yesterday, three suspects were arrested in Portland, Oregon for the Marin case. These suspects had Audrey Carey’s property in their possession. Based on further investigation, they are also being charged with the robbery and murder of Audrey Carey.

10/03/2015 9:30 PM
Clement & 19th
The suspect became angry at his girlfriend and smashed her in the head with a grocery bag that contained a glass jar. This resulted in significant injuries to the side of her head.

10/04/2015 5:00 PM
JFK & Transverse
The victim locked his $3500 road bike to a rack using a cable lock. He returned a few hours later to find the cable lock cut and the bike stolen. The bike was not registered and the owner could not provide SFPD with a serial number.
Captain’s Note: Cable locks are not effective because just about any cable can be quickly and easily cut. Without a serial number it is very unlikely that the owner will get his bike back. For tips on registering and locking your bike visit www.safebikes.org

The victim and a friend were walking when the suspect ran up and grabbed the victim’s purse. They struggled briefly and the suspect pushed the victim to the ground before fleeing with the purse.

The suspect may have entered through an unlocked door.

  1. Has this neighborhood become unsafe, or am I just reading the police blotter too much?

  2. “has the n’hood become unsafe”

    For sure there might be one or two more bad types out there, bur I am betting that the opportunity for easy crimes is so great–there are just too many of us out there walking along, totally oblivious and without regard for the environment. Everyone is plugged into their cell phones–they are zombies and easy pickings for anyone.

    Just stand on Clement street or Geary during the day to watch idiots crossing the street, never once seemingly looking away from their cell phones. WHY ARE THERE NO LAWS CONCERNING CROSSWALKS? People saunter through cross-walks like they’re the only person in the world, zoning out on their phones, while other people in cars have to wait even longer in order to avoid them.

    Then there are the absolutely stupid an deserving of being robbed, people who are out at night, plugged in, oblivious—sure you’re gonna get mugged.

    Try it. You can walk up on just about anyone out there, lost in their phone in the middle of the night. I come home a lot around midnight and am amazed at what I see. I have no sympathy for stupidity.

  3. ‘Haven’t visited the blotter in a while. ‘Glad to see the Captain posts advice & description of perps, including ethnicity. Perhaps Cpt. Silverman read Ann Coulter’s book!

    Concerning the homicide, Ms. Carey allegedly camped in GGP after good times at HSB, not realizing how hellish GGP is at night. This is one horrible ghetto park after sundown. The three demons also killed a man in Marin, shot his dog & took his car, up to OR apparently. Where did they get the gat? Yup, stole it out of a car! Perhaps the Captain should advise citizens to keep heat on their person.
