An apartment building in Noe Valley was evacuated earlier today after police found a suspicious device.

Officers were called to the 4100 block of Cesar Chavez at about 12:45 p.m. regarding a suspicious person. When police arrived, they located the suspicious man and interviewed him.

After a brief talk, police detained the man and the bomb squad was called in, said Officer Gordon Shyy.

The building has been evacuated for precautionary reasons. In addition, police have closed Cesar Chavez at Castro Street to both pedestrians and vehicles.

  • 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.'"
