Watch This Guy With a Knife Chase People Around Union Square (VIDEO)

Posted By on Thu, Jul 3, 2014 at 3:35 PM


We're not really sure what's going on here, but someone caught video footage of an unidentified knife-wielding man who was seen chasing a group of guys around Union Square the other day.

No word on what exactly started this incident, but watching the video, you'll see the driver get out of his silver pickup truck and chase a few guys around as they taunt him a bit. It appears he's holding a knife or at least something sharp, but that doesn't stop the other guys from provoking him -- and then hitting him.

Officer Albie Esparza says he's seen the video, which is making the rounds on YouTube, and heard about but no report was ever filed related to this incident.

  • 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.'"
