After being recognized in grainy surveillance footage, a couple have been arrested by Oakland Police in connection to the mugging and murder of 45-year-old Google job interviewee Jinghong Kang, who was shot dead earlier this month after handing over $17.

George Huggins, 24, was arrested in a dramatic scene yesterday after his 33-year-old girlfriend, Althea Housley, was arrested on Saturday after being recognized by phone tipters.

After Housley purportedly admitted guilt in the killing -- they needed drug money -- police had been seeking Housley. The wanted man was first recognized by a passer-by on Webster Street, who incapacitated Huggins until police arrived yesterday afternoon.

  • 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.'"
