SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A man tried to ram into a San Francisco police car in the city’s Western Addition neighborhood Saturday night, police said Monday.

Officers were responding to a possible car theft in progress in the 1300 block of Webster Street around 10:35 p.m. Saturday when the incident occurred, police said.
