The next Ingleside community meeting will be held at the Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 at 7p.m. The center is located at 515 Cortland Avenue across the street from the Bernal Heights Library. Refreshments will be provided, please attend. Thank you.

SFPD and San Francisco Planning are working with the operators of the radio tower at the top of Bernal Hill to make security (e.g. fencing upgrades and cameras) and landscaping improvements. This tower hosts antennas for both commercial systems as well as those used for communications by first responders (police and firefighters). The improvements are currently underway by American Tower. The lighting will also be adjusted and placed on a motion-sensor.

We would welcome your help in being an extra set of eyes and ears to discourage vandalism or potential disruption to crucial police and fire communications. If you see something suspicious, please call police dispatch at (415) 553-0123 or in an emergency call (415) 553-8090.

If you have questions about tower itself, please contact the Wireless Planner, Omar Masry, at (415) 575-9116, or Omar.Masry@sfgov.org


5:50am       Mission/Onondaga                 Robbery
This is the first chapter in a series of three robberies committed by the same group of suspects in the same area within a few hours. As related to Ingleside Officers Chang and Lim, it began when a man walking to work on Onondaga, between Mission and Alemany, noticed he was being followed by two men and a woman. As he neared the bus stop on Mission, the trio approached him and one of the suspects produced a handgun and demanded his property. The victim surrendered a cell phone he was carrying in one hand to one of the suspects while another suspect, holding an active taser, removed his backpack, dumping its contents on the ground, and taking a wallet, sunglasses, and cigarettes. All three suspects then fled northbound on Mission Street only to return a short time later demanding the victim surrender his pass code for his iPhone. The suspects then ran away again. Report number: 150895492

6:20am       300 Blk Silver                         Robbery
 In chapter two of this robbery saga, the same suspects approached a man parking his car at Mission and Silver Streets. The victim told Ingleside Officer Hauscarriague that three suspects, two men and a woman, approached his vehicle and reached in and took his cell phone from the center console. The startled victim began honking his car horn prompting the suspects to flee. The frightened victim decided to follow the suspects as they ran away on Mission Street, which he did until one of the suspects noticed the victim following them. The suspects stopped and pointed a weapon at the victim which persuaded him to abandon his pursuit. But the suspects were not finished with their morning crime spree as you will read next. Report number: 150895254

6:32am       Mission/Bosworth                   Robbery
Another man waiting for his ride to work was approached by the same three suspects who took out a taser and demanded his money. The victim surrendered his property and the suspects walked away just as the victim’s ride arrived. The victim’s called police and started trailing the suspects. But, one of the suspects noticed they were being followed and took out a weapon and pointed it at the victims. Ingleside Officers Lim and Chang arrived and were flagged down by the victims. They pointed out the female subject who was standing a few feet away. Lim and Chang quickly placed her in custody.  The other two suspects were arrested a short distance away and their weapons, along with much of the stolen property, were also recovered. Ingleside Officer Hauscarriague arrived soon after with a victim from a previous robbery who quickly identified the suspects as the robbers who took his property. All three were booked on a variety of felony charges. Report number: 150895298

10:45am     50 Phelan Avenue                   Robbery
A fight involving two men, with possibly a weapon, caused quite a stir on the City College campus. These days any call possibly involving a weapon on campus merits a serious response from law enforcement. So when dispatch alerted City College police and Ingleside officers that two men were fighting near the campus library and one of the combatants may have had a firearm, Several community college officers along with Ingleside police personnel arrived and found the wounded victim hiding in a library office. He identified the assailant as a fellow student. The officers interviewed witnesses and put out a city wide call to pick up the suspect. The next day, the suspect surrendered to City College police and was booked at the County Jail for assault with a weapon and robbery. Report number: 150895884
