SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco police say a man wanted on
suspicion of rape was arrested after approaching a uniformed female
officer on patrol and flirting with her.
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 told the San Francisco Chronicle 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.
