San Francisco police officers arrested a juvenile suspect Friday afternoon who allegedly tried to flee from police by jumping from roof to roof near the Presidio after pulling a gun during an argument, a police spokeswoman said.
Police received a 911 call around 11:30 a.m. Friday after a person reported being involved in an argument near the corner of Baker and Lombard streets that had escalated out of control when a male suspect pulled out a gun, police spokeswoman Officer Grace Gatpandan said.
When officers arrived at the scene they saw a man and a juvenile suspect. The man cooperated with police but the juvenile took off running, Gatpandan said.
Officers chased the juvenile, who tried to escape by climbing onto a roof in the 2500 block of Lombard Street and then jumping from roof to roof with officers in pursuit.
Eventually the boy entered a building in the 3000 block of Baker Street. Police set up a perimeter in the area and used police dogs to flush out the suspect, Gatpandan said.
The boy was taken into custody at about 12:15 p.m., Gatpandan said.
The juvenile was arrested for first-degree burglary, four counts of vandalism, resisting and delaying arrest and for a no-bail warrant for carrying a concealed weapon, according to Gatpandan.
Police also arrested 22-year-old Hector Herrera of East Palmdale for misdemeanor vandalism.
