Police search after chase ends in Nob Hill
A large police presence in San Francisco’s Nob Hill neighborhood Sunday evening revolved around a massive search for at least one suspect who led authorities on a pursuit through the city, witnesses told the Beat.
San Francisco Police and California Highway Patrol officers were searching an area near the iconic Fairmont Hotel near Clay and Mason Streets, area residents told the Beat.
Residents said there were at least one dozen police vehicles in the area and some were blocking some of the narrow one-way streets in the neighborhood — home to some of the most expensive residential addresses in San Francisco. There are reports that service on MUNI’s 1-California trolley bus line was affected by the street closures.
The origin and reason for the pursuit were unknown as of press time.
