A man who is friends with a local cop apparently thought that made him above the law.

San Francisco Police arrested a man who allegedly tried to rob and rape a woman in the Ingleside neighborhood. At about 3:17 p.m. on Monday, a woman came out of a store and saw a man sitting near the exit.

The woman said that she felt uncomfortable and decided to walk away from the suspect in a new direction. She then called her friend, who lived nearby. While she was on the phone with her friend, the suspect came up behind her and grabbed her, taking her to a secluded area.

What the man didn't know is that the victim's friend who was on the phone could see the incident happening from his window, according to police.

The suspect demanded money from the woman, who said she did not have any. The man then said he would rape her, but he was stopped when the woman's friend ran up. The suspect started to run and the friend ran after him.

The suspect then pulled out a gun, chambered a round, and pointed it at the friend's chest, saying "Now what?" The friend stopped and the suspect kept on running.

Police combed the area, and found a man who fit the description of the suspect. The suspect announced to the cops "It's fake!" referring to the gun. Police searched him and located a replica of a .40-caliber in his waistband.

The woman and her friend identified him as the suspect. Soon after, a Daly City cop identified him as his friend.

  • 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.'"
