In the closest we've seen to the signature scene from Raising Arizona being recreated on Muni, a woman reported to police she was forcibly robbed of a package of diapers.

The incident, which took place at Geneva and Santos -- a stone's throw from the Cow Palace -- was a fairly straightforward robbery in all matters but the stolen item.

A woman claims that she was approached Friday night by an 18-to-24-year-old fellow passenger and shouted at. That's Muni for you. Until what came next: The perturbed passenger grabbed the victim's package of diapers and high-tailed it to the nearby Sunnydale projects.

Neither hide nor hair -- nor anything else -- has been seen of the diapers since.

  • 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.'"
