Vandalism Suspects Surrender After Release of Video Footage 18-162

On Saturday December 8th, 2018 at approximately 6:47 PM, San Francisco police officers were flagged down outside of a restaurant located on the 1400 block of Polk Street regarding a vandalism incident.

The officers met with an employee who stated that two unknown women who appeared intoxicated came into the restaurant.  One of the women told the employee that she had paid for food but never received it.  The employee denied that she had paid for food and refused her service because she was too intoxicated.  The woman became angry and began knocking over items, including the cash register.  The employee confronted the woman and she punched him in the face.  The employee ran away for safety while the woman continued to knock items over inside the restaurant.  The employee stated that the other woman grabbed a chair outside the restaurant and shattered the front door glass.  Both of the women then left the scene.

Video of the incident was released. On Tuesday, December 11th after having seen the footage on the local news, both women surrendered themselves at Northern Police Station.

Twenty-one year-old San Francisco resident Natalie Alcantar was booked at San Francisco County Jail for felony vandalism.  Twenty-one year-old Pacifica resident Hannah Baughman was also booked at San Francisco County Jail for felony vandalism and battery. Booking photos are not available at the time of this release.
