This must be big, because Mayor Gavin Newsom was quoted in the press release -- and he's in India.

San Francisco Police today arrested a suspect in the Nov. 30 J-Church stabbing stabbing of a sleeping woman. Alert Taraval Station officers this morning noticed Bobby Brown, who matched the description of the knife-wielding man giving the city nightmares -- an interesting notion as "strong body odor" was one of the characteristics of that man.

Brown, 30, incidentally, was one of the usual suspects detained in the much-publicized stabbing of an 11-year-old boy on Sept. 1. The boy was unable to finger Brown, who was booked at the time on an outstanding warrant for indecent exposure.

Brown was booked for attempted murder. Our calls to the SFPD querying if surveillance footage also shows the suspect failing to pay his Muni fare has not yet been returned.

  • 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.'"
