The weekend got off to a rocky start for San Francisco, as San Francisco Police responded to two tricky situations last night: a woman barricaded in China Basin and a bomb scare in the Mission District.
Around 4 p.m. on Friday afternoon, police responded to a barricaded woman in a building at 301 King Street, near the Caltrain station. The woman had gotten into a fight with her boyfriend, and stabbed him, according to KCBS. After a standoff with authorities and talking to negotiators, SFPD took her into custody before 6 p.m.
Her boyfriend was taken to a hospital, but the injuries he suffered were non-life threatening. According to ABC 7, police activity in the area tied up traffic and caused delays on Muni's T-Third Street line.
Later on that night, in the Mission, police closed off a two-block area after a suspicious-looking device was planted near 23rd and Bartlett Streets. After it was reported around 8 p.m., residents in the building closest to the suspicious object were evacuated. They were allowed back in just before 11 p.m. after a bomb squad robot determined it was not a threat, according to ABC 7.
Although it was thankfully nothing more than a two-hour delay, authorities say somebody was up to no-good. "It appeared to be a legitimate active device with a timer and wires. After rendering the device safe it was found to be a hoax device," according to SFPD Sergeant Monica McDonald.
