San Francisco Police Arrest Aggravated Assault Suspect 21-040

On February 2, 2021 at approximately 12:10 PM, San Francisco Police officers from Northern Police Station responded to the 1800 block of Chestnut Street regarding an assault. Upon arrival, officers contacted the victim, a 32-year-old Richmond, CA resident. The victim, a nanny, told the officers that at approximately 11:00 AM, she was pushing a stroller containing an infant on the 1900 block of Chestnut Street when the suspect approached her. The suspect, who was approximately four feet away, began yelling at the victim. The suspect was holding a metal object which he raised above his head and began waiving it around wildly. The victim crossed the street in an effort to get away from the suspect, but he followed her as she pushed the stroller away. Bystanders intervened and the suspect fled. Neither the nanny nor the child was injured.

Through the course of an investigation, the suspect was identified as Jason Christopher Gonzales-Warren, a 27- year-old male with no known address. A crime bulletin containing Gonzales-Warren’s photo was circulated to law enforcement agencies.
