San Francisco Police Have Productive Weekend
The San Francisco Police Department was busy over the weekend rounding up robbery suspects. All tolled, cops arrested nine suspects in five robberies. Of those arrested, seven were juveniles and guns were
used in two of the incidents.
The first arrest occurred early Saturday morning when a motorcycle cop riding down Fourth Street spotted three men assaulting a male victim. The officer was able to detain one of the suspects, 21-year-old Cristino Castillo, who was charged with robbery and conspiracy. The 32-year-old victim was injured though police say not seriously.
Then, late Saturday night, cops responded to reports of an ongoing assault at Mission and Onondaga streets where they arrested four juveniles for beating and robbing a 25-year-old male. The juveniles range in age from 15 to 17. They remain in custody and have been charged with robbery, assault and conspiracy.
Early Sunday morning, they arrested a 16-year-old male who beat up a 15 year old and stole his cell phone in the 400 block of Geneva Ave. Then, in broad daylight, two teenagers robbed a
21-year-old male at gunpoint at Mission and Kingston streets. After a foot chase, police arrested the two suspects, 14 and 16, and charged them with robbery and conspiracy.
Finally on Sunday, police arrested San Francisco resident Josue Dominguez, 19, for robbing two
males at gunpoint, again in broad daylight, in the 3300 block of Mission Street. --John Geluardi
