San Francisco police are looking for a man who attempted to rob a foreign exchange student as he rode Muni through downtown last month.

On Oct. 20, the 24-year-old student, who is also hearing-impaired, was on the 38-Muni line at about 5:35 p.m. when the suspect (pictured right) came up behind him and pepper-sprayed the victim. A second suspect -- later identified as 24-year-old Raheem Muhammad of Oakland -- allegedly rushed over and attempted to steal the victim's backpack, police said.


victim was able to hold onto his bag, and both suspects got off the bus, running in different directions. Muni Task Force officers caught up with Muhammad, who was arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery. However, the second suspect is still on the loose, police said.

  • 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.'"
