At about 4:20 p.m., an officer spotted subjects getting into a vehicle in the area of the 4200 block of Marsten Avenue. This vehicle was connected to a homicide in the City of San Francisco that occurred on July 13. Additional subjects also got into an additional vehicle and they all drove away. The officer requested additional police assistance and made a high risk stop of both vehicles. A subject in the front vehicle fled on foot while the officers were ordering everyone out of the vehicles. Officers established a perimeter around the neighborhood; and with the assistance of other police agencies captured the subject when a police K-9 located the subject hiding in a yard. San Francisco PD officers responded and took over the investigation, which resulted in two subjects being arrested for homicide.
Officers investigated four auto burglaries in the Union Landing Shopping center near the Century 25 Theaters.
At about 2:31 p.m., officers responded to a residence on the 4400 block of Pinewood Court to investigate an assault. Arriving officers met with the victim who stated that he had been involved in a verbal conflict with a former neighbor in the area of Dyer Street and Alvarado Niles Road. During the argument, the suspect struck him with a rock, causing him to lose consciousness. The victim's friend came to his assistance and the suspect fled in his vehicle. The victim's friend drove him home and called the police to report this incident. The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
