Nude, Gymnastics-Doing Psycho Terrorizes San Francisco BART Station (Video NSFW)

+

While we normally wouldn’t be ones to use the expression OMFG, because its overuse has devalued its true meaning, in the case of this video from an incident at a San Francisco public transportation station a few weeks ago it seems warranted. While the headlines about it seem like they’re of a joking nature, as does ours, and it might seem like a playful, if disturbing scene at first when you watch the video, it turns downright terrifying as the true extent of this naked, high as fuck, menacing gymnast become apparent. NSFW for nudity, and being scary as hell.

A commenter from MissionMission has more details:

Wasn’t that “amusing” as you are despicting it. Just saying. Just left 16 and Mission Bart station and as I was approching the ticket exit, a completely naked man with his penis hard was backing a woman coming from work I assume against a wall and he threw her down to the ground. Someone tried to stop him and he ended up throwing the guy to the ground and then got on the ticket exit/entrance thing and squatted over for everyone to see his anus and then and then and then….. the point is that no one could control the situation and then he started going after an older man and had him by the neck. He was obviously on PCP since he was so strong and out of it ( i think???)) wtf! Everyone ran out and no one could help. I heard “the police were on their way” but we all ended up getting out of there. I didn’t stick around. Thank god my kids weren’t with me. Sad world and fucked up people. Fuck 16th/Mission Bart. At your own risk!

UPDATE: SFGate has identified the man:

The man was identified by BART police as 24-year-old Yeiner Garizabalo. Friends said Tuesday he goes by Yeiner Perez and is a dedicated acrobat and performer. The episode, they said, was strongly out of character.

“He’s been through a lot of stress — he seems to have been having a breakdown,” said Slim Chance, who leads the Berkeley circus troupe ClownSnotBombs. Perez was a member from January to early May. “That seems to be the tip of it right there. I just can’t tell you anything more because I don’t really know what his state is. It’s not at all like his normal character.”

Chance said Perez, normally a “workaholic acrobat,” stopped showing up to the group’s practices several days before the episode.
