Upper Haight Crime: Armed Robberies, Brass Knuckles Assault, Abandoned Wreck, More

Time again for another Upper Haight-in-crime recap. All reports are drawn from daily summaries provided by SFPD.

Two separate armed robberies on Cole Street

September 14th saw two robberies at gunpoint on Cole Street, one at the 100 block and one at the 700 block, about an hour apart.

Shortly before 11pm, a woman walking southbound on Cole at the 100 block was robbed at gunpoint. The robber, who got away, made off with a purse, wallet, and phone; the victim was uninjured.

An hour later, two young women walking south on Cole at Waller were robbed by someone fitting the same description. They were also uninjured. No arrests were made in either incident.

Police barricade ends in fatal self-inflicted shooting

A 26-year-old man barricaded himself in his home on the 400 block of Hugo Street Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning as a police Tactial Team tried to convince him to exit safely.

Despite making contact with the man, police were unable to secure a safe exit; the man died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. 

Assault with baseball bat and brass knuckles

On Monday afternoon, a 24-year-old woman sitting in a parked car on Clayton at Haight was attacked by two assailants, who started hitting her car with a baseball bat and then assaulted the woman with the bat and brass knuckles.

The victim was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, and the two suspects remain at large.

Abandoned car flip at Haight & Broderick

In the early hours of September 1, police responded to a flipped car at Haight and Broderick. The driver evidently walked away from the wreck and no injuries were reported.

Anyone who has information about any of these incidents is encouraged to contact SFPD via the department's anonymous tip line at 415-575-4444, or text TIP411 with "SFPD" at the start of the message.

Here’s why we usually don’t include suspect descriptions in crime reports.
