San Francisco police have announced fourteen arrests and the confiscation of numerous firearms amid ongoing robbery and burglary abatement efforts throughout the city.
Throughout the month of March, police arrested fourteen people and confiscated nine firearms, as well as located evidence connecting many of the arrested individuals to multiple auto burglaries and robberies, police said.
On that day, a man told officers that he’d been sitting in his car in the area of Bay and Taylor Streets when someone got out of the car next to his and tried to get into his car. When they couldn’t, the individual got back into the other car and the car drove off.
The victim told officers he followed the suspect car until one of them brandished a gun out the window, at which point he stopped following, police said.
Officers located the suspect vehicle a short time later and attempted a traffic stop, but the suspect vehicle instead lead them on a pursuit, striking and severely damaging a parked vehicle in the process, police said.
At a certain point, the suspects — identified as Godoy and Ensuncho-Del Toro — abandoned the vehicle and tried to flee on foot, but were quickly apprehended. During the arrest, police reportedly found an unregistered ghost gun that had been discarded by one of the two.
The two were ultimately booked at the San Francisco County Jail on a variety of charges, police said.
