A Daly City couple's night on the town in San Francisco turned violent on Saturday after a man allegedly kidnapped a woman, raped her, and beat the man she was with, police said.

Sgt. Michael Andraychak tells us that 33-year-old Nelson Centeno was at a club on the 1000 block of Folsom Street when he met the couple at the bar. He offered the man and woman a ride home, and they agreed.

After the woman got into the car, Centeno allegedly beat the man, then drove off with the 30-year-old woman still inside his car.

Police say the suspect drove the woman to an unknown location and raped her. It's not clear who called the police, but Centeno was caught later that morning on the 2900 block of San Bruno Avenue. He was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, rape, assault, and resisting arrest, Andraychak tells us.

  • 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.'"
