A man charged  with reaching out of his driver's-side window and grabbing the rear end of a girl standing on a Muni platform was quickly nabbed by police at a playground where he was pushing his son on a swing set.

The 34-year-old suspect was easy to find, reports Ingleside Station Captain Louis Cassanego, as the 17-year-old victim described his car as "tangerine."

"I don't think I've ever heard that before in my career," said Cassanego. Along with Officer Jonathan Ng, Cassanego soon spotted an "Atomic Orange" Pontiac Aztek with matching plates at a play area in Balboa Park where the man was enjoying a Thursday afternoon with his young son. It appears the son was in the vehicle when the man allegedly executed the drive-by fondling at the San Jose and Ocean Muni platform.

The victim and her friend identified the Father of the Year, who was charged with sexual battery. Her status as a minor was not a factor in this case, said Cassanego. "It would be if she was much younger."

He was cited and released and, according to the cops' writeup, assigned "a court date to explain his actions to a judge."

  • 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.'"
