Knife-Wielding Teen Attacks Woman As She Exits Her Car In Pacific Heights

Posted By on Mon, May 19, 2014 at 12:06 PM


An 18-year-man is in jail this morning after he allegedly attacked a woman at knife point then followed her to her house after she got away.

According to police reports, the 36-year-old woman was getting out of her car on the 2600 block of Sacramento Street yesterday afternoon when the suspect abruptly pinned her against a tree.

As the woman struggled to free herself from the man's grip, he tackled her, attracting the attention of people passing by.

When a witness tried to intervene and help the woman, the attacker pulled out a knife and started chasing the Good Samaritan. The suspect fled the scene but later came back to the woman's house where he kicked at her front door. Neighbors reported seeing the man on the roof of her home; according to police he had climbed the fire escape and entered the victim's home through a window.

By the time he got inside, the cops had arrived and arrested the suspect, 18-year-old Victor Manuel Rodriguez, on a slew of charges, including burglary, assault with deadly weapon, stalking, and false imprisonment. Officer Albie Esaprza says the victim and suspect knew each other but wouldn't elaborate on their relationship.

  • 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.'"
