S.F Woman Pulls Robber's Hair, Then He Pulls Gun

  • Never good self defense...

At some point kids are supposed to learn not to pull on other people's hair, and for good reason -- because the person's hair you are tugging on might be armed and dangerous.

Such is the case with one woman who last week was robbed while she was in the Excelsior --  but not at gunpoint. That came later.

At about 10:30 p.m., the woman was at the playground at Crocker Amazon Park when she pulled out some money. The robber snatched the cash from her hand and took off running. The woman stopped the man when she grabbed a tuft of his hair.

The man outdid her self defense when he pulled out a gun and told her he would kill her.
The woman let her grip of the man's hair go, and he ran off with the cash, the gun, and tousled hair.

  • 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.'"
