Wanted Rape Suspect Arrested After Flirting With SF Police Officer

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — A man wanted on suspicion of rape was arrested after approaching a uniformed female officer on patrol and flirting with her, according to San Francisco Police.

The unidentified 26-year-old man was taken into custody over the weekend on a no-bail warrant for rape issued in Hayward.

Capt. Paul Chignell said the arrest came after the man tried to strike up a conversation with the female officer.

The officer was inside a parked police cruiser.

Chignell said the suspect asked the officer if she was married.

The officer said she wasn’t available, but asked for the man’s name.

A subsequent record check turned up the warrant, and the suspect was arrested.
