SF BART police launch probe of response to naked man's attack

The nude acrobat assaulted several commuters before police arrived on the scene

The SF Examiner

SAN FRANCISCO — BART Police Chief Kenton Rainey said Wednesday that he has ordered an internal review of how his department responded to an incident at a San Francisco station last month in which a man stripped naked and harassed people.

"If there were any procedural failings we will correct them, and if there were performance issues with our officers we will address them," Rainey said.

Yeiner Perez Garizabalo, 24, a trained acrobat, is charged with two felony counts of false imprisonment, four misdemeanor counts of battery on public transportation and one misdemeanor count of sexual battery for the May 10 incident. Rainey didn't specify what about the BART police response to the incident troubled him. He declined to say if his agency had filed an arrest report but said that will be one of the issues the internal probe will explore.
