The 63-year-old man went to a bar and met a 30-something woman early on April 7, according to the police report from today.

At 3 a.m., they headed back to his place on the 300 block of Elsie Street, a Bernal Hill street known for its annual block party. 

The gentleman agreed to be tied up. Sex, he thought, was in the offing, according to the police report.

Instead, the suspect finished tying the knots and then turned to goods she considered more alluring: the victim’s laptop, tablet and cell phone.

She fled and no arrests have been made.

The 79-year-old man who opened his door on Spencer Street Sunday at 8:55 p.m. was doing the 30-something woman a favor.

She asked if she could use his bathroom and he said yes, according to police. The woman then walked into his kitchen, grabbed a box cutter and walked into the victim’s bedroom.

When the victim asked the suspect what she was doing, she threatened him with the box cutter and held him up.

She fled with the victim’s money.

At 3:51 a.m. Saturday near Mission and 16th Street, a 35-40-year-old woman  pulled a 20-year-old woman by the hair, took her cell phone and fled, according to police.

Soon afterwards at 4:30 a.m., a 34-year-old was on 17th Street near South Van Ness with a friend when an argument started between the victim’s friend and two suspects — a 35-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman, according to police.

The male suspect pulled out a handgun, placed the weapon against the 34-year-old victim’s abdomen, and took his cell phone.

The two suspects fled in a 4D silver sedan, according to the police report.


On Friday at 9 p.m., four men in their 20s jumped a 44-year-old man on Mission Street near 16th Street.

They took his cash and California ID and fled on foot.
