While the Upper Haight saw a bit more crime this past month, most notably a Haight & Stanyan skateboard attack that left a teen in critical condition, things have been relatively quiet in the Divisadero/NoPa/Alamo Square/Lower Haight area, aside from a few burglaries and robberies. Here's your monthly crime roundup, based on information provided by the SFPD. 

Phone theft turns into early-morning carjacking

At 1:40am on March 7th, two male friends, aged 26 and 27, were driving around when they encountered two suspects in their 20s and 30s near Central and Fulton streets. At one point, one of the suspects became angry with one of the victims, pulled a gun, and stole his cellphone.

The other suspect then got onto the driver's seat and the two of them fled the scene in the car, leaving the victims behind. The San Leandro Police Department was able to locate the stolen vehicle and assist in bringing one of the suspects into custody.
