  • A black Cadilac Seville, similar to the vehicle carjacked today with a 5-year-old in the back seat
A man suffered every father's nightmare this morning: After he stepped out of his car to fill up at a gas station, a thief leaped in and drove off -- with the man's 5-year-old daughter in the back seat.

The incident took place at around 5:40 this morning at Imperial and Carlson in the city of Richmond; it is not believed that the thief intended to kidnap the child but just wanted the black 1997 Cadillac Seville with 22-inch gold rims.

That police theory is plausible, as the thief apparently took the very first highway exit to drop off the little girl, who was quickly recovered by authorities.

The purloined car was quickly recovered too, as the thief quickly abandoned it. He remains at large and a manhunt is under way.

  • 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.'"
