SFPD Seeking Woman who Allegedly Threw Burning Pants into Store

Police are seeking a woman who walked into a store in San Francisco’s Tenderloin neighborhood early Thursday morning and nearly started a fire.

Around 2:05 a.m., police received a call reporting an arson happening at a store in the 300 block of Golden Gate Avenue, according to police.

Officers learned the woman walked into the store and ordered food. The woman then refused to pay for the food and left, police said.

The woman then returned to the store, apparently carrying a pair of pants that were on fire, according to police.

The woman threw the fiery pants onto the floor before leaving the scene, police said.

The suspect is described as a black woman believed to be around 24 years old, according to police.

No injuries were reported during the incident.
