A serial car burglar added another crime to his resume Thursday, when he ran over a woman who tried to stop his thieving ways.
According to the San Francisco Police Department, a man who appeared to be in his mid 20s to early 30s was breaking into cars on the 1800 block of Divisadero Street (which is between Bush and Pine Streets) at 10:05 a.m. Thursday.
One of his robbery victims, a 45-year-old woman, caught him in the act, police say. She chased the thief to his getaway car, a silver four-door sedan occupied by a woman who looked to also be aged 25-33.
The thief, now armed with a vehicle, drove it into his pursuer and ran her over. Police say that he was last seen fleeing north on Divis, then turning east onto California Street.
His victim suffered a "possible broken leg," police say, and was transported to San Francisco General Hospital for treatment of injuries police say are non-life-threatening.
The thief/hit-and-run driver, police say, remains on the loose as of Friday morning.
