BART trains are held up at the Glen Park Station where an unidentified person jumped down onto the tracks this afternoon, causing some long delays. 

BART Spokesman Jim Allison says that after the person jumped onto the tracks, the transit agency shut off the power at the station, bringing trains to a halt.

No train was arriving at the time when the person jumped, Allison says. 
BART police are currently trying to get the jumper into custody, he says.

The incident has caused up to 20 minute delays for trains headed to the East Bay. So bring a book.

  • 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.'"
