- Taking a cue from the East Bay's recent restaurant robberies, an armed gunman entered Valencia Street Italian eatery Beretta (formerly Last Supper Club/Radio Free Valencia) on Tuesday morning and robbed the joint. The restaurant was filled a with 10 patrons at the time. According to the Gate:
Police got a call at 1:21 a.m. Wednesday that a man had walked into Beretta on Valencia Street between 22nd and 23rd Streets, waved a gun and shouted, "This is a robbery! Everybody get down!" He didn't fire his gun, and no one was hurt. A restaurant worker handed the man the cash, and he fled on foot eastbound on 23rd Street.
Naturally, no arrests have been made. But the suspect is described as a African-American between 25 and 35 years old (!), 5'8",150 lbs, sporting a "brown hooded jacket, black baggy jeans, and black shoes."
- According to SF Crime (via Bay City News) a man was found shot inside his car on the 3000 block of Harrison Street last night at around 9:30 p.m. He later died at SF General Hospital.
No arrest have been made.
