On Aug. 10, at approximately 11:52 a.m., San Francisco Police officers assigned to the Richmond Station responded to a report of a battery in the area of 26th Avenue and Geary Boulevard. 

Upon arrival, officers met with a 65-year-old female victim who told officers that she was walking on Geary Boulevard when an unknown male suspect walked in front of her and punched her several times. The victim said that the assault was unprovoked, and she suffered non-life-threatening injuries as a result. Following the attack, the suspect fled the scene. 

Investigators obtained video of the suspect who was later positively identified as 35-year-old Terence Chrisman of San Francisco. 

On Aug. 22, a police officer assigned to Central Station was on the 800 block of Bryant Street when he spotted Chrisman and took him into custody without incident. 

Chrisman was booked at San Francisco County Jail on two charges of assault likely to cause great bodily injury, elder abuse and a new felony arrest while out of custody on pending felony.

While the victim was driving his vehicle into his garage, he looked to the side and observed a subject throw an unknown object at the windshield of his vehicle, damaging it. The suspect then fled eastbound on California Street. 

Responding officers located a suspect on 14th Avenue who matched the description and detained him. 

The officers conducted an eyewitness identification and the suspect was placed under arrest. 

The suspect was booked at County Jail for felony vandalism, and an active warrant for felony vandalism. 

Aggravated Assault with Force: 300 Block of Third Avenue, Aug. 23, 1:35 p.m.

The victim saw two subjects exit an apartment building and walk toward a black two-door sedan. 

The male suspect approached the victim and asked something to the effect of, “What are you looking at?” The victim did not understand what else the male suspect was saying, as he does not understand English fluently. The suspect punched the victim’s right cheek with a closed fist, which caused the victim to temporarily lose consciousness and fall to the ground. 

The victim regained consciousness and went to the hood of the suspect’s vehicle, to prevent the suspect from leaving. The suspect shouted something in English to the victim, and the suspect “pushed (him) with the car.” The victim was adamant that the suspect did not hit the victim with the vehicle but “pushed” him. The victim fell off the vehicle. 

The suspects fled in the vehicle, southbound on Third Avenue to westbound on Geary Boulevard and are still at large. 

Outstanding Warrant: Geary Boulevard and Third Avenue, Aug. 24, 2:15 a.m.  

Officers conducting a graffiti abatement operation on Geary Boulevard observed a subject riding a bicycle on the sidewalk with no lights, which is a city and state traffic code violation. 

The subject appeared to be casing buildings and had two large Bluetooth speakers attached to his backpack, both of which had graffiti on them. The officers detained the subject and a computer records check revealed he had an active warrant out of San Mateo County and an active local warrant. 

The suspect was placed under arrest and later booked for the warrants for vehicle theft, identity theft, possession of stolen property and property theft. 

Stolen Vehicle: California Street and Ninth Avenue, Aug. 27, 4:40 p.m.

Officers responded to a report of a possibly stolen vehicle left standing in the intersection of California Street and Ninth Avenue. 

When the officers arrived, they observed one subject asleep in the passenger seat. 

The subject claimed that her father had given her the vehicle, but she had no paperwork to support this and no contact information for her father. Another subject approached the officers and told them that they had been given the vehicle and they drove around in it for a while, and then it ran out of gas. 

Both suspects were placed under arrest for theft of the vehicle. A booking counter search of one of the suspects revealed a bag of a white crystalline substance, which later tested positive for methamphetamine. 

The suspects were booked for vehicle theft, conspiracy, possession of narcotics and possession of stolen property. 

Malicious Mischief, Vandalism To Vehicle: Geary Boulevard and 15th Avenue, Aug. 30, 9:42 a.m.

A witness called to report that the suspect was ripping up plants from yards and throwing them on the sidewalk. As the witness watched the suspect, the suspect picked up a rock and threw it at the window of a business on the corner of 15th Avenue and Geary Boulevard, but the window did not break. 

The witness said that he drove around the block and when he returned to the suspect’s location, the suspect was standing near a Mercedes SUV with the back window smashed, which the witness said he believed was caused by the suspect. 

Officers detained a suspect matching the description at Geary Boulevard and Fifth Avenue. As the witness left a car dealer on Geary and Fourth, he saw the officers with the person he had called about.

The suspect came to the driver’s side window of an out-of-service Muni bus and said he needed help. The Muni driver quickly closed her window for safety and the suspect struck it with a paddle, shattering the driver window and showering glass shards on the driver. The suspect then went to the rear passenger door and broke the glass pane. 

The suspect told responding officers he was undergoing a mental health crisis and needed to go to the hospital. 

The suspect was taken to San Francisco General Hospital (SFGH) by ambulance and subsequently booked into County Jail for felony vandalism. 

Driving While Under the Influence of Drugs: Park Presidio Bypass Drive and Crossover Drive, Sept. 2, 11:35 p.m. 

Officers responded to the location regarding a male slumped over at the wheel of a gold or tan four-door sedan. 

The officers gave the subject commands to turn the vehicle off and remove the keys from the ignition. The subject followed the officers’ commands, but did not put the vehicle in park, and the vehicle rolled back. The subject was eventually able to step on the brake and place the vehicle in park. 

When asked for his driver’s license, the subject provided officers with a DMV Administrative Per Se (DS 367) form that was completed on Aug. 19, 2022. The DS-367 advises the driver that the DMV intends to suspend or revoke their driving privilege in the State of California and acts as a temporary driver license until this happens. 

The officers observed that the suspect’s movements were slow, his speech was slurred and there was a strong odor of burnt marijuana emanating from the vehicle. 

The subject consented to perform field sobriety tests, with unsatisfactory results. The suspect refused to submit to a blood test, stating that he had already provided a blood sample “the first time.”

 The officer contacted a judge to obtain a blood draw search warrant. The judge authorized the search warrant and a phlebotomist responded to Mission Station to perform a forced blood draw. The sergeant at Mission Station recognized the suspect from a hit-and-run crime bulletin and identified the suspect as the hit-and-run driver. 

The suspect was later cited and released from Richmond Station for driving under the influence of drugs.

 Officers were dispatched to the intersection of 15th Avenue and Geary Boulevard regarding citizens holding down an intoxicated male who had used a liquor bottle to break the window of a restaurant. 

The suspect claimed that he had gotten into a fight with a “Mexican guy” and that the guy pushed him into the glass. Nobody on scene corroborated the suspect’s statement, and one witness stated that she watched the suspect walk up to the window of the restaurant and hit it with his liquor bottle, causing it to crack. 

A computer records check revealed that the suspect had active warrants for indecent exposure and lewd conduct. 

After being medically cleared, the suspect was booked at County Jail for the warrants and felony vandalism.

At the bus stop on 32nd Avenue and Geary Boulevard, the suspect told the victim to get off the bus and not to run. The victim, in fear for his life, knew he was going to get robbed and complied. The suspect had the victim empty his pockets onto the sidewalk. The suspect stole the victim’s iPhone and AirPods and then told the victim he could leave.

Upon their arrival, they were flagged down by the victim who told them that he was attacked by a subject in the coffee shop. The victim was in his vehicle and the officers followed him in their patrol vehicle to the area of 18th Avenue and Geary Boulevard. 

The victim stopped his vehicle on the 400 block of 18th Avenue and immediately pointed to the suspect, who was walking through the parking lot mid-block, and identified him as the subject who attacked him. 

The suspect was detained pending the officers’ investigation. The victim told the officers that he was in the coffee shop when the suspect walked in and grabbed the large glass tip jar and swung it at him, nearly hitting his head at least three different times. 

The officers responded back to the coffee shop and spoke with an employee of the coffee shop, who told them the suspect entered the coffee shop yelling and shouting randomly towards the staff, then grabbed the tip jar, got into an altercation with a customer on the way out, and exited the store with the tip jar. 

The officers conducted an eyewitness identification with the employee and the suspect was placed under arrest.

Graffiti: 3500 Block of Geary Boulevard, Sept. 10, 5:03 p.m.

Officers responded to a report of a vandalism in progress and detained four individuals who were painting on a building. 

One suspect told the officers that he got permission from the owner to paint the building. The suspect said that he didn’t know the owner’s name and didn’t have written consent. The suspect gestured to a sign posted on the door of the vacant building and said that he called the number on the poster and was told he could paint on the building. 

He said, “The last time, a couple of months ago there was a gentleman that did a big bunch of mountains running across it.” The suspect told the officers that, as local law enforcement, they must be aware of this. None of the officers had ever seen a mural of mountains on the front of the building. The suspect then told the officers, “people just go over it with graffiti stuff and they change it every couple of months and so I’m just trying to paint legally.” 

One of the officers had personal knowledge of recent graffiti incidents at that building in which the manager wanted to press charges. The building manager had also authored an e-mail expressing gratitude for graffiti violation enforcement and said that it has been an issue “almost weekly for months,” with a previous graffiti clean-up costing $3,577. 

The four suspects were placed under arrest for vandalism. All four suspects were booked into County Jail for felony vandalism, with one suspect also booked for committing a felony while out on bail for felony vandalism. 

Carjacking With a Gun: 2600 Block of Geary Boulevard, Sept. 12, 4:05 p.m.

The victim was in his parked vehicle at a parking garage across the street from his school. The victim started his vehicle, rolled down the window and, in his rear-view mirror, observed three suspects approaching. 

One suspect ordered the victim out of the vehicle and pulled out a silver firearm. The suspect then struck the victim in the face with the firearm, and the victim exited the vehicle after being pistol whipped. 

The suspects got into the victim’s vehicle and drove it away. 

The victim, who is student at Raoul Wallenberg High School, stated the suspects attend the same High School as him, but he did not know their names, although he believes they’re younger than him. 

The Bayview Violence Reduction Unit spotted the vehicle the next day, and conducted a traffic stop, detaining the two subjects inside the vehicle. The officers conducted an eyewitness identification of the subjects with the victim, with negative results. 

The vehicle was released back to the victim. The driver of the vehicle stated he had traded an unknown subject a dirt bike for the vehicle.

A suspect exited the front passenger seat wearing a ski mask and hoodie, while holding a black semi-automatic firearm. A second suspect, wearing a mask and hoodie, exited the rear passenger seat. The driver stayed in the vehicle. 

Both suspects walked up to the victim. The suspect with the firearm pointed the firearm at the victim and said, “Give it up!” The victim, in fear, froze. The suspect ripped a gold chain, valued at $40,000, from the victim’s neck with his left hand, while continuing to point the firearm at the victim with his right hand. Both suspects then backed away from the victim and got back into the Honda and fled. 

All suspects are still outstanding.
