Customer leaves O’Keeffe’s Bar angry, returns and shoots out a window

O’Keeffe’s Bar on the corner of 5th and Balboa is usually about as quiet as they come for neighborhood bars.

But in the early hours of Tuesday morning, an unruly patron was escorted from the bar. A short time later around 1:12am, he returned with a handgun and fired one shot through a closed window of the occupied bar.

The Richmond District Police Station reports that no one was injured, and officers arrived quickly and arrested the suspect. He was booked at County Jail on several assault and weapons charges.

One neighbor who lives across the street said that “one officer bravely caught the guy on his own without firing a shot. It was well handled. A minute later 5-8 cars responded too.”

Police Blotter – February 27, 2015

SFPD Richmond District Police Station
Weekly Update 02-27-2015
Captain Simon Silverman

Here are some of the 732 incidents handled by officers in the Richmond Police District this past week:

RECENT INCIDENTS:

ARREST: POSSESSION OF METHAMPHETAMINE FOR SALE
Fulton & 16th Ave
02-20-2015 11:39 AM
Undercover officers saw a suspect who was on probation for burglary. As a condition of his probation, the suspect is required to submit to warrantless search by police officers. The officers searched him and found 7.6 grams of methamphetamine, two scales (both with methamphetamine residue on them) and 22 small empty baggies (typically used to package individual amounts for sale). He was booked at County Jail.
CAPTAIN’S NOTE: Although recently passed Proposition 47 made possession of methamphetamine for personal use a misdemeanor, possession with the intent to sell is still a felony. In this case, the intent to sell was established by the quantity of drugs, the presence of packaging materials, the presence of scales and the absence of paraphernalia used to smoke or inject the methamphetamine.

ARREST: MISDEMEANOR WARRANTS
Pierce & Sacramento
02-20-2015 12:00 PM
Officers responded to a report of people shouting. The only person present was the complainant who was under the influence of drugs. She also had warrants for drug related charges out of Sunnyvale. She was booked at County Jail.

WELL BEING CHECK
Clay & Presidio
02-20-2015 2:42 PM
Officers responded to check on the well being of an 81 year old woman who lives alone. They found that her caregiver had departed three weeks ago and that she had neither food nor electricity in the home. A social worker from Adult Protective Services arranged for her to stay with a responsible family member and will be handling her case.

ARREST: MISDEMEANOR WARRANTS & RESISTING ARREST
Fulton & 2nd Ave
02-20-2015 10:33 PM
Officers saw a suspect who was looking into cars (a precursor to breaking into cars). They detained him to investigate and ran a records check which showed that he had warrants for his arrest for theft charges. When the suspect realized he was going to jail, he took off running into a wooded area of Golden Gate Park with the officers in pursuit. As they caught up to him, he turned to fight, but the officers restrained and handcuffed him. He was booked at County Jail.

ARREST: MUNICIPAL CODE VIOLATION & FELONY WARRANT
Geary & 15th Ave
02-21-2015 8:34 AM
Officers were on patrol when they saw the suspect drinking alcohol in public (a violation of the SF Municipal Police Code).

Geary & 26th Ave
02-21-2015 11:40 PM
Officers were on patrol when they saw the suspect urinating in public (a violation of the SF Municipal Police Code). They stopped to issue him a citation and found that he was so drunk that he could not care for his own safety. He was booked at County Jail.
CAPTAIN’S NOTE: The penal code allows for the arrest of a person who is found in any public place under the influence of intoxicating liquor…in a condition that he or she is unable to exercise care for his or her own safety or the safety of others. Usually, the person is released without charges once they are sober.

MISSING / FOUND PERSON

02-22-2015 9:30 AM
A man reported that his elderly wife who suffers from severe dementia had been missing from their home for about 20 minutes. After nearly three hours of searching, officers found her in Golden Gate Park and returned her safely home.

CAPTAIN’S NOTE: We have described variations on this scam in previous newsletters. If you have any doubts about the authenticity of someone claiming to need access to your property DO NOT LET THEM IN! Call the SFPD and we will come out to investigate.

02-26-2015 1:05 AM
A citizen waved down officers to tell them that he had just witnesses a white car hit a taxi on Post Street, then speed away and hit another car while parking at Geary and Masonic. The driver had fled into a nearby residence. Officers contacted her and found that she was under the influence of alcohol. She was booked at County Jail.
CAPTAIN’S NOTE: Because the taxi driver from the first collision sustained an injury, both the DUI charge and the first Hit & Run charge are felonies.

THEFT FROM A LOCKED VEHICLE
Geary & 22nd Ave
02-25-2015 4:41 PM
The victim waved down a passing officer to report that his car had been broken into and his computer equipment had been stolen. The theft was witnessed by an employee of a nearby business.
Suspect: Black male, 20-22 years old, 5’4” 170lbs, wearing a black jacket. The suspect had short hair.
CAPTAIN’S NOTE: In this case, the victim had hidden the stolen property underneath a mat. This did not fool the thief who broke the car window to have a look inside anyway. Never leave valuable items in your car.

ARREST: STOLEN CAR, FELON IN POSSESSION OF A PROHIBITED WEAPON, DRIVING WITH A SUSPENDED LICENSE, TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS
Westbound Turk to Laguna
02-26-2015 2:51 PM

They also found that the driver had a suspended license and that she had previously been convicted of a violent felony. They discovered a Taser (electrical charge weapon) in her possession.

Richmond District teen Sean Sidi still missing after 21 months

KPIX 5 News ran a story recently on a disturbing trend – 5 San Francisco teens who have gone missing in recent years, disappearing without a trace.

One of them was 19 year old Richmond District resident Sean Sidi, who disappeared 1 year and 9 months ago. On the day he disappeared, he called a family member and said he was headed to Golden Gate Park.

To this day, his family has not been able to get any concrete leads as to Sean’s whereabouts.

“It’s hard,” Lynn Ching, Sean’s mother, told KPIX. “Humans are prepared for death, but not for someone going missing.”

On Tuesday, May 21, 2013 Sean called his father around 1:30pm and said he was “catching a bus to the park”. That was the last time that anyone heard from Sean, and he was last seen during a visit to a former high school teacher at the International High School on Oak Street earlier that day.

Sean’s family is especially concerned because several months before his disappearance, Sean suffered a severe traumatic brain injury that left him medically fragile.

Police traced the last ping from his phone on May 21, 2013 to an area “near and/or around Alvord Lake (Golden Gate Park), Stow Lake (Golden Gate Park), and the Inner Richmond”.

According to KPIX News, “four other young men, Crishtian Michael Hughes, Shawn Dickerson Tyler, Cameron Remmer and Jackson Miller had also gone missing in San Francisco in the three years before Sean disappeared, all about the same age as Sean. Together they became known as the California 5, and all are still gone without a trace.”

Watch the video above to get the full story.

Photo: SUV charred by porta-pottie arsonist

On Valentine’s Day a 3:07pm, someone set a porta-pottie on fire on 10th Avenue. The car parked next to it also suffered fire damage.

This isn’t the first time an arsonist has targeted porta-potties. Since 2008, this has been an ongoing problem across the city.

According to Hoodline, 27 portable toilets were set on fire across San Francisco between late 2008 and fall 2009. At the time, police arrested a 62 year-old homeless woman but she was never convicted.

In 2012, a similar rash of porta-pottie fires occurred, but no one was arrested and police are still unsure if it was the same arsonist from the 2008-2009 spree.

And most recently in January, one was burned down on Divisadero Street.

Who knows whether this is the same person or a copycat but the problem doesn’t seem to be going away. In the meantime, be mindful of where you park…

ARREST: LEWD ACT IN PUBLIC & PAROLE VIOLATION
Middle Drive West & Transverse (Golden Gate Park)
02-11-2015 @ 10:15 PM
Officers were on patrol when they saw a male and a female engaged in sexual intercourse in public view. They stopped to ensure that the activity was consensual. A records check revealed that the male was on parole as a high risk sex offender. Officers carefully interviewed the female who confirmed that the officers had interrupted a mutual, amorous encounter with her boyfriend. The parolee was arrested for violating terms of his parole and the female was released at the scene.
CAPTAIN’S NOTE: California law makes it a misdemeanor to engage in “lewd or dissolute conduct in any public place or in any place open to the public or exposed to public view.”

ARREST: THREATENING AN OFFICER & RESISTING ARREST
Cabrillo & LaPlaya
02-11-2015 @ 11:02 PM
A MUNI bus driver called the SFPD to remove a passenger who refused to disembark at the end of the line. The officer asked the suspect to get off the bus and the suspect immediately threatened violence against the officer. He approached the officer with clenched fists and continued to threaten the officer. The officer made verbal and physical attempts to gain control of the suspect but he continued to resist and to threaten the officer. The officer then used his oleoresin capsicum spray (commonly known as pepper spray) which was effective in stopping the suspect. Paramedics responded to treat the suspect for the effects of the OC spray and he was taken to the hospital for medical clearance (this is standard protocol). He was then booked at County Jail.
CAPTAIN’S NOTE: During training at the SFPD Academy, every new recruit is sprayed in the face with OC spray so they can experience the effects first hand… but you won’t see that on the SFPD recruiting posters.

ARREST: CRIMINAL THREATS & WARRANTS

SFMTA spot-checking blue disabled placards on Clement & Geary today

Cub reporter David H. came upon some plainclothes SFMTA officers on Clement Street who are in the neighborhood today enforcing the blue disabled placards on cars.

The blue placards, which are issued to people with disabilities, exempts a driver from paying a parking meter for up to 72 hours (that’s any parking meter, not just ones in blue spaces).

In San Francisco, that can save $55 or more a day in parking costs. California is one of just five states that provide disabled-placard holders with free, virtually unlimited parking.

In November, the Chronicle reported that there were 60,750 placards held by drivers in the city in 2012. That’s twice as many as were registered in 2001, and is more than double the number of metered spaces that actually exist in San Francisco (28,000).

The abuse of these placards is a long-time problem for the city. A 2008 Muni report found that almost half the cars in downtown metered spaces had blue placards hanging from their rear-view mirrors.

A 2014 report from the City Controller’s office reported an estimated $22.7 million in lost meter revenue in 2013. Not to mention the abuse makes parking even harder for those disabled drivers who have valid placards.

So it’s no surprise that the SFMTA allocates officers and time to spot-check placards, trying to catch abuse as it’s happening. Officers visit different parts of the city several days a week, pulling up placard numbers at parking meters to see if they’re valid. A placard may be phony, expired or even stolen.

During their enforcement today, SFMTA officers had no problem finding violators. They issued 10 citations alone on Clement, and one officer told David that they estimate about 50% of the placards being used city-wide are invalid.

Abusing a placard is expensive – a citation costs the car owner $1,000, but catching them can be time-consuming and costly to city resources.

David chatted with a SFMTA officer while he waited for an owner of a car that was using a placard that had been stolen from someone born in 1929.

On one block of Clement, David observed 3 metered parking spaces that had cars with blue placards parked in them.

“Clement Street is placard heaven,” the SFMTA officer said.
