Pedro Hernandez, the 68-year-old allegedly caught both on tape and in the act molesting his step-granddaughter at Sanchez Elementary School, remains at large.

He has addresses in both San Francisco and the East Bay and is a

frequent visitor to Mexico; his photograph and information has been

distributed to federal agencies across the state as well as the border


A $2 million warrant has been issued for his arrest in what San Francisco Police spokesman Officer Samson Chan calls "a very active case."

On Thursday, Hernandez allegedly arrived at the school claiming he was bringing his step-granddaughter lunch. He then led her to a stairwell and is accused of molesting her -- a charge backed up by surveillance tapes and a teacher's aide who interrupted him.

Anyone with information the whereabouts of the 5-foot-2, 140-pound Hernandez is encouraged to call (415) 575-4444.

  • 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.'"
