A two-hour standoff between police and a wanted 19-year-old male on Tuesday ended when the officers realized that the subject was not, in fact, in the building where they had been waiting for him.  At approximately 5:58 p.m. on February 9, officers patrolling the Mission saw a suspect who was wanted in connection with an aggravated assault, and began pursuing the man on foot. The suspect managed to flee into a building on the block of Treat between Cesar Chavez and 26th Streets, where he barricaded himself — or so the officers thought.

Tactical units and Crisis Negotiators were called to the scene, according to Sgt. Michael Andraychak, and a command post was set up. It wasn’t until 8:29 that officers determined that the suspect was not in the building, said Andraychak. The standoff was called off, and officers resumed the search for the man, but have not yet made an arrest.

A late-night burglary and a stolen cellphone

Sometime between 7:30 p.m. on February 8 and 7:50 a.m. the following day, an unknown suspect entered into a residence on the block of 18th street between Harrison and Alabama streets and proceeded to take items from various rooms, including backpacks, a purse, various credit cards and a U.S. passport. There were no signs of a forced entry, and the victim, a 27-year-old female, woke up in the morning to find the main entrance door to her apartment wide open. No arrests have been made.

A group of teens robbed another teen of his cell phone on Tuesday evening. The attack occurred at 9:30 p.m. on the corner of 19th and Valencia streets between a group of five males between the ages of 14 and 16, and another 17-year old male.  The 17-year-old victim was looking at his cell phone when one of the other teens grabbed the cell phone from his hands and ran away with it. The victim attempted to follow the cell phone thief, but was stopped by the boys in the group, who stepped in front of the victim and chased him away, according to police. It is unclear whether the victim and suspects knew each other, and no arrests have been made.
