The District Attorney's office this afternoon revealed that Bobby Brown, the 30-year-old homeless man charged in several high-profile San Francisco stabbings, will be charged in a fifth case.

In keeping with his pattern of allegedly attacking women and children, Brown is accused of knifing a 40-year-old woman on an N-Judah train at around 6:10 p.m. on May 12. The victim's wounds were described as "non-life-threatening."

Brown was already facing a possible jail term of 72 years if found guilty of the four other stabbing cases he was charged with on Dec. 3. More as we know more.

  • 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.'"
