San Francisco police report that on Monday, May 23, a 31-year-old woman woke up to find keys missing from her home on Guerrero Street between 14th and 15th streets. She left to go to work, but returned home at just before 1 p.m., and discovered a 25-year-old man in her home. The victim called the police, who arrived in time to arrest the burglar.

Sometime between 1 a.m. and 2 a.m. on Friday, May 20, a 34-year-old man was approached  on 16th and Mission streets by two men, who hit him on the head. The suspects then took the man’s wallet from his pocket and fled the scene. The victim suffered some head pain but was not transported to the hospital, and no suspects were arrested.

Finally, a 26-year-old man was arrested on Monday after several newsstands and garbage cans were set on fire. The fires occurred at about 6:25 a.m. near 15th Street and South Van Ness Avenue. Police say the damage is still being determined.
