On October 7, 2010 in the early evening a twenty-two year old cyclist was traveling north bound on 6th Avenue between Geary Boulevard and Clement Street. The young cyclist and a MUNI bus, also traveling north bound on 6th Avenue, collided and the cyclist was killed. The cause of collision is still under investigation. Please drive safely and defensively. Also remember that at this time of the year our streets are more dangerous due to intensity of both the early morning and late afternoon sun. Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclist should all be careful. It is also important to not to assume that a driver, pedestrian or bicyclist will act in any particular way. You should remain vigilant and ready for all possibilities.

On 10/03/10 at 2:00pm officers that were assigned to the music festival in Golden Gate Park observed a hand to hand narcotic sale between 2 males.

The 33 year old male was charged with several narcotic violations.
On 10/03/10 at 3:00am a male left a party on the 1000 block of the Great Highway. He reported that he got into a fight with an unknown male and when the fight was over his backpack and Nordstrom’s suit that was inside was missing.

On 10/04/10 at 1:00am three victims (2 males and 1 female) left a restaurant in the area of 7th Avenue and Geary. They were followed out by the three female suspects who accused the female victim of staring at them. The victim told the suspects that they were mistaken and the 3 victims tried to walk away. Two of the suspects then began to punch the female victim and the third suspect punched one of the males. The male who was not being assaulted at the time pushed one of suspects backwards and she fell into one of her friends and they both landed on the ground. At this point as the victims were trying to retreat, a suspect took off her high-heeled shoe and chased after the victims. The victims were able to flee the area without any further injury.
