Here's the Rap Sheet for Dec. 31, 2015:

CARS STOLEN FROM DEALERSHIP: Three men and a woman are being sought by San Francisco police for boosting several cars worth hundreds of thousands of dollars from a car dealership.

The incident happened about 12:40 a.m. Wednesday when the group pulled up to the business near 11th and Howard streets in a Lexus SUV.

One of the intruders cut the main lock of the gate to the dealership before drilling the lock to the storage area.

The suspect then went to where the keys to the cars were stored and stole keys and tools. One by one, the suspects then drove off with cars.

MAN WHO SOUGHT LEWD ACTS WITH GIRL NABBED: San Mateo County sheriff's investigators have busted a 51-year-old man they say tried to engage in sex acts with a 15-year-old girl after sending her hundreds of text messages.

Patrick Joseph Andorfer was arrested Wednesday after a four-month investigation.

The case began when the alleged victim's father told sheriff's investigators that his daughter had been receiving inappropriate Facebook and text messages from Andorfer, said Detective Salvador Zuno.

Over the course of four months, the suspect sent the girl more than 500 text messages, authorities said.

"The messages became increasingly sexually explicit as the months passed," officials said. "It became clear to detectives that Andorfer was actively attempting to meet and establish a sexual relationship with the 15-year-old girl."

So detectives decided to set up an "imaginary rendezvous" between the girl and Andorfer by having him meet on the 600 block of Correas Street in Half Moon Bay, Zuno said.

When he showed up, he was taken into custody, Zuno said.

Andorfer was booked at San Mateo County Jail on several charges of attempted lewd acts with a child. His bail was set at $50,000.

SFPD SAVES WOMAN: San Francisco police say they helped save a woman who was clinging from a window in the Tenderloin and had to be resuscitated.

The incident happened about 1:45 a.m. Dec. 26 when a resident went into the Tenderloin police station to report someone hanging from a fourth floor window of an apartment building on the 300 block of Leavenworth Street, said Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman.

Officers went to the scene and found a 23-year-old woman hanging from a window about 40 to 50 feet above the sidewalk, Esparza said.

Officers, along with a shopkeeper and a customer, went into the unit after getting a key from the building's front desk clerk.

They pulled the victim into the room and realized that she wasn't breathing and had no pulse, Esparza said. An officer performed CPR and, after several minutes, "the victim began to take deep breaths, and a pulse was detected," Esparza said.

As of today, the woman is recovering but it still under medical evaluation, police said.

“This incident is a clear reminder of how fragile life is," Chief Greg Suhr said in a statement. "Fortunately, members from the community and Tenderloin Station were in a position to move quickly and rescue this person in crisis."
