'BBQ Tool' Used in San Francisco Stabbing Attack

Perhaps 'Clue' should have included BBQ tools in its weaponry?

Last night in San Francisco, the weather was a breezy 90 degrees -- absolutely perfect for an outdoor cookout. Apparently one woman in the Tenderloin had other plans for her barbecue paraphernalia.

A 47-year-old woman named Gay Brandies was last night arrested after an incident with a 45-year-old woman living in the same Single Room Occupancy (SRO) hotel near Sixth and Markets streets. On the police report, it received the rare designation of stabbing by "BBQ Tool."

At around 11:05 last night, Brandies toted her barbecue tool -- Sergeant Troy Dangerfield of the SFPD said it was the two-pronged skewer --  to her neighbor's

door and knocked. When the 45-year-old opened the door, she was allegedly greeted with a stab in the throat. Brandies then retreated back to across the hall to her room. 

The victim called 911, police arrested Brandies, and the victim was taken to the

hospital with "non-life-threatening injuries."

Isn't San Francisco wonderful in the summertime?

  • 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.'"
