A suspect was arrested Wednesday following a violent attack on a woman outside her San Francisco apartment complex; with the victim telling reporters it took more than half an hour for police to arrive.
“Surveillance footage from the Watermark condo complex on Beale and Bryant appears to show a man attacking a woman outside of the glass doors around 1:40 a.m. Initially, he blocks her access to the doors. As she maneuvers to get a grip on the door handle, he starts pulling her backward into the street. A guard at the security desk gets up and eventually gets the woman inside the complex and locks the door,” reports SF Gate.
“Police say Austin James Vincent, 25, has been booked at San Francisco County Jail on charges of battery, attempted robbery and false imprisonment. According to SFPD, he has no local address,” adds the paper.

CALIFORNIA CHAOS: ‘Free Syringes’ FLOOD San Francisco Streets
San Francisco continued its struggle with rising homelessness and rampant drug use this week, with local residents complaining about the flood of ‘free syringes’ littering the city streets and public areas.
According to Yahoo News, Bay Area officials distribute millions of needs per year to the city’s growing drug users but have “no control” over how they are disposed or discarded; prompting a “flood” of used syringes throughout San Francisco.
“The city distributes an estimated 400,000 syringes each month through various programs aimed at reducing HIV and other health risks for drug users. About 246,000 syringes are discarded through the city’s 13 syringe access and disposal sites. But thousands of the others end up on streets, in parks and other public areas, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday,” writes Yahoo.
To help stem the flow of dirty needles onto the streets, San Francisco Mayor Farrell hired ten full-time employees to patrol the city; removing used syringes according to proper medical guidelines detailed by the Department of Sanitation.
CALIFORNIA CHAOS: ‘Sanctuary’ San Francisco PLAGUED By Record Breaking Crime
California’s Bay Area residents are waking each morning to unprecedented levels of burglaries and car break-ins; with locals urging state leaders to clamp down on escalating crime, homelessness, and drug use after years of liberal laws and ‘Sanctuary City’ status.
According to CBS News, local residents are “seeing a record number of car burglaries” throughout the Bay Area; with San Francisco “leading the pack” ahead of neighboring cities Oakland and San Jose.
Law enforcement confirms the City by the Bay saw a stunning 31,120 car break-ins last year alone; a 17% rise since 2016.
“Unlike San Francisco, where burglars are targeting rental cars and tourist destinations, in Oakland, the majority of the break-ins are in commercial districts, where people go shop and dine,” writes CBS San Francisco.
“The chances of getting caught are very slim. In San Francisco, for example, not even 2 percent of the thieves are nabbed,” adds the site.
The Bay Area was thrust into the national spotlight last week when Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf rebuked the federal government and warned illegal immigrants throughout the region of impending ICE raids.
