Another vehicle fired occurred this weekend at Hartford and 18th Street, according to San Francisco Police Department reports. Officers responded to a call around 3:00 a.m. Sunday saying there was vehicle on fire. They arrived on scene to find a car on fire at which point it was quickly extinguished. This fire is close to similar incidents that set two cars on fire in Liberty Hill last week and similar incidents last month. There’s also been several other vehicle fires elsewhere in the city in recent weeks. It’s unclear if these incidents are connected, but the arson investigation is ongoing.
Two people also went to the hospital this weekend following violent crime.
An aggravated assault at Cesar Chavez and Potrero Streets, also sent a 55-year-old man to San Francisco General hospital with non-life-threatening head injuries. The man had a verbal altercation regarding a noise complaint with a 29-year-old man around 10:40 Saturday morning. That fight ended when the younger man struck the older one with a glass bottle and fled.
Early Sunday morning, shortly before 2, two men in their 20s approached a 45-year-old man and grabbed his phone out of his hands near 19th and Hartford. One of the suspects punched the older man and another took his wallet before they both ran off. The man complained of head pain and went to General Hospital for his injuries.
Finally, a household of three people in their twenties reported of a burglary and the suspects are believed to be their movers. The household had hired two movers, both men in their 50s, to assist the three young people in moving into a new home on Liberty Street near Guerrero. Following a completed move on Saturday, the housemates went to sleep that night. The next morning they found laptops, smart phones, a watch, purses, keys and other items had been stolen.
