A moment of levity has sprung out of San Francisco’s car break-in epidemic: one of our resident smash-and-grabbers, it seems, has a crush.
“I walked past your car every day and I never break your window,” wrote the self-described “window breaker.” “You’re the shining star in my commute every morning. One day we’ll cross paths and I’ll get the courage to ask you on a date in your sexy car.”
The note was left on the windshield of a car parked on 18th Street between Guerrero and Dolores. A photo of the note was posted on Reddit a couple days ago.
Last year, some 30,000 cars were broken into in San Francisco. In the Mission, car break-ins skyrocketed 86 percent from 2016 to 2017.
Yet it appears one car has been spared — not because of the recently established property crime units or the SFPD’s Park Smart program — but in the name of love.
