The recap of Saturday night reported only three incidents citywide and none in the Mission, but soon after midnight, crime here perked up – first at 25th and Potrero streets.
Imagine, a husband, his wife and another man in the back seat of a car at 1:15 a.m. The husband yells at the other man for sitting too close to his wife. The accused hits the husband over the head with a glass bottle and flees. No arrest, no serious injuries.
Nine minutes later at 1:24 a.m. Sunday, the biggest (reported) Mission drama of the night happens at 28th and Dolores. A witness hears screams outside, investigates and sees a man dragging a woman down the street. The suspect and the victim drive off in a dark colored, older vehicle, the police report states.
Eleven minutes later at 22nd and Mission streets, two alleged thugs grab a victim, push him to the ground and “place a cold object against the back of the victim’s neck.” They want his property and the victim complies. The thugs make a run for it—apparently successfully as no arrests are made.
Then at 2:30 a.m., the last noteworthy Mission weekend crime. Two men on 20th and Valencia get jumped by three other men. You know the story — the suspects run, the victims end up at San Francisco General with minor injuries, and no arrests are made.
