The recent mugging on 20th Street between Church & Sanchez on Monday, September 17th at 6:45pm reminds us all that safety awareness and block groups are important. Three guys attacked a single young guy and stole his cell phone. They sped off in a car parked across the street. The crime was captured on a neighbors video camera.
What can you do? Please be aware when walking in the neighborhood. Watch your surroundings. If you see strangers, use your judgment regarding where to walk. Call the police non-emergency number (415-553-0123) to report suspicious strangers on the street. Join one of our neighborhood block groups.
To connect with our block groups and learn more about safety, come by our Safety table at DHIC Fall Festival on Saturday, October 13. A representative of SF Safe will be there along with Patrick Crisp, one of the DHIC block safety group leaders.
