San Francisco Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying three suspects who kidnapped and sexually assaulted a woman at approximately 3:30am on August 7, 2010.
The 25 year old victim was standing at Van Ness and California at 3:30am on August 7, 2010, when she was approached by three men driving in a black VW Golf, hatchback-style vehicle. The victim agreed to a ride with the suspects, back to her hotel in the South of Market area. As the victim attempted to get out of the vehicle, one of the men pulled her back in the car as the driver sped off. The victim was dragged for a short distance, driven to a remote area near Cesar Chavez and the 101 Freeway and sexually assaulted. The victim suffered injuries to her feet, legs and neck. She was treated for her injuries and released.
The three suspects told the victim that they were from San Jose and were celebrating one of the men’s 18th birthday.
The victim was able to assist in creating a sketch for two of the suspects. They are described as:
1. “Oscar“, Hispanic male, 18-25 yrs., 5’6”, 145 lbs., wearing dark baseball hat, black “Ed Hardy” shirt with lettering across neck.
2. “Johnny“, HM, 5’7”, 150 lbs., dark fade-like haircut, wearing olive green buttoned shirt
3. Unknown, HM, 21-22, heavy set, with dark wavy hair (driver of vehicle)
2002-2005, BLACK, VW Golf, 4-dr., hatchback.
Police are seeking assistance from the public, who may be able to identify these suspects or who may have information regarding this incident. Police encourage anyone who believes that they have been the victim of a sexual assault to report it to the police or respond to the San Francisco Rape Treatment Center located at San Francisco General Hospital as soon as possible. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sexual Assault Unit, Inspector Sidney Laws or Lt. Dan Leydon at 553-1361.

SWORDS TO PLOWSHARES VETS TO HELP CARE FOR PET CEMETERY. VOLUNTEERS WILL TEND GRAVES OF BELOVED MILITARY PETS
Presidio of San Francisco (March 18, 2010) — The Presidio Trust and the Swords to Plowshares Veterans Academy, located on the Presidio, are kicking off a new partnership that will ensure long-term stewardship of the Presidio Pet Cemetery. The agreement provides for Trust staff to work with residents at Swords to Plowshares’ permanent supportive housing facility, the Veterans Academy, to maintain and improve the cemetery. Activities will include pulling weeds, removing invasive plants, picking up trash, trimming shrubs, and eventually restoring individual grave markers.
Located at the foot of McDowell Avenue, beneath Doyle Drive, and bounded by a white fence, the 450-square foot cemetery is the final resting place for hundreds of loyal animals owned by families stationed at the Presidio. The cemetery’s official record is spotty but, by most accounts, it dates to the 1950s when upwards of 2,000 military families lived on the base. There are numerous legends surrounding the cemetery, which some believe was originally a burial ground for nineteenth-century cavalry horses or World War II guard dogs.
“The pet cemetery gives us insight into family life at the Presidio. It is part of the fabric of the park and former military base,” says Craig Middleton, the Trust’s Executive Director. “We are grateful that the veterans of Swords to Plowshares have offered to care for this important part of the Presidio’s legacy.”
