Upper Haight Crime: Sidewalk Stabbing, New Captain, Officer Honored, More

It's a new month, and time for a new Upper Haight crime recap—our first summary under a Park Station helmed by Captain Una Bailey, who comes to the station from the department's Special Victims Unit.

In a recent letter to the community, Bailey said she looked forward "to building and maintaining community involvement and relationships over the coming years. I know that when we work together, we will create a district that will be safe and sound for all."

On Thursday, November 16th, Bailey is holding a Coffee with a Cop session to meet members of the public at Stanza (1673 Haight St. between Cole & Belvedere) from 9–10:30am.

Man stabbed near Haight & Clayton

Shortly after 10:30pm on Friday, October 27th, a 25-year-old man suffering from stab wounds was reported on the sidewalk outside of Hobson's Choice (1601 Haight St.) on the Clayton side. A knife was found a few feet away.

The victim was transported to the hospital and the knife logged in evidence at Park Station. The suspect, described as a man between 19 and 25, was not apprehended and the incident is still under investigation.

Shots fired from a car

On Friday, October 13th, police responded to the 900 block of Baker St. in Anza Vista to reports of shots fired from a moving car. The vehicle and suspect remain at large but no injuries or property damage were reported.

Later the same night, at around 1am, shots were fired from a car around 1400 Baker St. from a fast moving car. Shell casings were found at both locations.

Park Station officer honored for off-duty heroics

Last night, San Francisco Police-Fire Post #456 honored Park Station Officer Riley Bandy as their Officer of the Year for Valor, citing actions he took while off-duty in 2016 while apprehending a robbery suspect.

The incident occurred in July 2016 when Bandy was jogging around Lake Merritt in Oakland and came across a suspect aiming a rifle (later found to be a BB gun) during a robbery in progress. Bandy intervened and identified himself as a police officer, at which time the suspect ran away, and the officer gave chase.

Although the suspect aimed his weapon at Bandy multiple times, he called 911, continued the chase and apprehended the robber, a 16-year-old male, after he dropped his weapon. Soon after, Oakland police officers took the suspect into custody.

Park Station community meeting

Park Station holds a monthly community meeting every third Monday at 5pm. The next meeting is on Monday, November 20th in the station's meeting room (1899 Waller Street at Lincoln Way).
