Earlier today we warned readers to be on the lookout for two men, one of whom allegedly robbed and raped a woman at gunpoint inside her motel room. A few hours later, police issued a sketch of another man wanted in a separate sexual assault and attempted murder in the Potrero neighborhood.

On Nov. 18, between 3 and 4:30 a.m., the suspect followed the victim as she walked from 24th Street to South Van Ness Avenue near Potrero Avenue. The suspect demanded money from the woman, but she told him she had no cash.

According to police, the suspect then grabbed the woman and took her to another location nearby; he strangled, punched, and slapped her before sexually assaulting her.

Afterward, the suspect ran off toward 25th and Alabama streets, police said.

The suspect was described as a black man with medium-to-light complexion. He is 35-to-50- years old and is 5-foot-11. He weighs about 160 pounds and has a round, clean-shaven face, big eyes, a round nose, thick lips, and gold teeth. He was wearing athletic apparel: a light gray hoodie with a front zipper, blue cotton running pants, and sporty tennis shoes that were possibly black and white.

Anyone with information is asked to call the anonymous tip line at 575-4444 or text a tip at Tip411 and reference SFPD.

  • 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.'"
