Arson, Assault Hit Mission on New Year’s Day


As if being prematurely uprooted, decorated and then cast aside like garbage wasn’t bad enough, a defenseless Christmas tree was set on fire when it was left lying next to a woman’s car on the 200 block of Capp Street around 6 p.m. on Wednesday. The passenger side of the car was burned, and the suspects — two white females aged 27 and 25 — fled the scene but were followed by the woman driving the car. The police arrived on the scene and the two suspects were arrested.


At 2 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, a 29-year-old white female was drinking with a Hispanic male between the ages of 40 and 55 at 24th and South Van Ness. Upon announcing she was leaving, the man became irate and began waving a knife around, which he then used to cut the woman on her hand. The woman fled the scene, and was treated shortly thereafter for the non-life-threatening laceration to her finger.

    The two people that followed the girls were not connected to the car. One had just parked her car somewhere else and saw it happen, the other whom I know was following the while talking to a 911 dispatcher.

    Nice to see that white crime gets mission locals attention
