SAN FRANCISCO – San Francisco police arrested a suspect in connection with a home invasion Tuesday.
An 18-year-old San Francisco man was arrested on suspicion of two robberies, two cases of elderly abuse, negligent discharge of a firearm, possession of a firearm while committing a crime, and carrying a loaded firearm while committing a crime carrying a loaded firearm, two attacks with a deadly weapon, destruction of evidence and resistance to a peace officer, according to the San Francisco Police Department.
At 3:06 p.m. Tuesday, officials responded to a residence on the 500 block of Campbell Street after two people broke into a house.
The responding officers saw two suspects leaving an apartment.
One of the suspects ran to a waiting Ford SUV being driven by another suspect and fled the scene.
The police followed the vehicle, but the suspects ultimately evaded the officers.
The other suspect, who fled the residence and was later identified, fled the scene on foot and officials pursued him.
Police said the suspect appeared to stumble forward and officers heard a shot.
Additional units from the California Highway Patrol Aviation Unit, the Daly City Police Department, and the University of California’s San Francisco Police Canine Unit responded to assist with the pursuit.
An SFPD officer eventually located the suspect behind a fence on the 100 block on Tucker Avenue.
Police said the man they arrested was the second suspect to force his way into the victim’s home.
The suspects then went through drawers and cupboards before escaping the house with cash, police said.
Officials returned to the scene on Wednesday to examine and locate a Glock .40 caliber pistol.
