A teenager was arrested after he broke into a San Francisco apartment building, shattered several windows and ran from police this morning, a police sergeant said. A neighbor reported seeing the teen breaking a window and entering a building in the 1800 block of Sacramento Street, near Van Ness Avenue, around 11:35 a.m., San Francisco police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.
Officers responded and set up a perimeter, and heard more windows being shattered. The suspect was seen on the building’s roof, and was then spotted climbing a fence in the backyard attempting to evade police, Andraychak said. He was arrested and taken to a hospital to be treated for cuts from the broken glass, Andraychak said. A police officer also suffered minor injuries while climbing the fence, Andraychak said. The boy appeared to be about 15 or 16 years old and did not live in the building, Andraychak said.
