San Francisco Supervisor Ahsha Safai’s family home in the Crocker-Amazon neighborhood was broken into and the stove, microwave and vent were stolen.

Safai, who represents District 11, said no one lives in the house at present because it’s under renovation. He discovered the break-in Friday morning when he was meeting a painter. He called the San Francisco Police Department and filed a report.

Safai shared a photo of the damaged door showing evidence of forced entry on social media.

“This is no different than [what] many other San Franciscans are experiencing right now,” said Safai, referring to the constant high-profile property crimes happening in the city. On the same day, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s home was broken into and her husband was violently assaulted.

This is the second time he’s been victimized in the past two years, Safai said. His car was broken into last year just outside of City Hall.

San Francisco police confirmed that officers responded to the incident Friday morning, and said the break-in likely happened overnight. It’s still unclear how many suspects were involved.

Police said no arrest has been made, and the incident is being investigated by SFPD’s Burglary Unit.
