    Which business? That’s pretty important info. You should at least say which block (by cross-street.) Sloppy reporting, guys.

    Hi, GGxGG! Thanks for your feedback.

    The Bay City News reporter did note that the crime was reported “in the 2800 block of Mission Street near 24th Street,” which appears to address your concern that “You should at least say which block (by cross-street.)” Unless I am misunderstanding you?

    Regarding the business name, for preliminary reports journalists are frequently reliant on what information SFPD will provide, and the SFPD is frequently protective of victim details.

    When we can, we check SF data feeding sites like Crime Mapping, but if we can’t confirm a business (or, obviously, a victim) name, we’re frequently reluctant to speculate.
