San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr released a cell phone video of the two suspects torching the Muni bus during the World Series celebration on Sunday night.
 
"With the assistance of the media and the public, we were able to apprehend the suspect responsible for damaging the bus windshield.  We are now asking for public assistance in identifying these two arsonists and bringing them to justice," Suhr says.

"The Police Department is working closely with the Municipal

Transportation Agency to solve this case. When we do, we will

coordinate with the District Attorney and City Attorney's Offices to

hold these persons accountable for their actions and to see that

restitution is paid."
 
Police say the 8X-Bayshore Express Muni bus was set on fire about 12:30 a.m. Monday at Market and Third streets. The video, which was recorded by a witness, shows the two suspects torching the bus as it stopped on Market Street.

Muni says eight

passengers and the driver exited the bus, escaping the fire; however, the $700,000 bus was certainly injured beyond repair.

The cops released this photo of the second suspect wanted in connection to the arson.

  • 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.'"
