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.

    What was her reason for running his name? Wished you reporters would put more effort into writing your stories.

      She may have found his behavior a bit odd and wanted to know if there was something, uh, complicated going on. It turned out she did the right thing. The whole situation sounds so weird we shouldn’t make too many assumptions, though.

    In California cops don’t need a reason other than you being in their presence.

  • Dale Norbeck

    she had every right to run his name… thats part of her job..

  • Miss Dee

    Why would you strike up a conversation with a police officer and then GIVE HER your name if you were wanted on a felony? This guy deserves everything he gets!! LOL

  • Ben

    Don’t talk to cops. They’re looking for a reason to mess with you, and they don’t need a good one.

    This guy is a leading candidate for the “Stupid Idiot Rapist of The Year” Award (not that there are smart rapists). Has a rape record, talks to a female cop, gives his real name, and then sticks around after that. The guy deserves to be castrated.
