San Francisco Police arrested 39 fugitives on Thursday over a 12-hour period. The citywide sweep targeted high-risk parole and probation violators who were wanted for robbery, narcotics and sexual predator crimes. There were four women among those arrested.

The arrests were made as a result of a coordinated effort between numerous agencies including the SFPD, San Francisco Sheriff’s Office and U.S Marshals.

“Hopefull crime will go down because of these arrests,” says Sgt. Lyn Tomioka. “The charges against those arrested will be refilled and these men and women will be held accountable for their actions.”

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
