San Francisco police investigators arrested a man late Friday afternoon in connection with an incident earlier in the week in which a man with a gun entered a Jewish synagogue and fired off several blank rounds.

That incident happened in the 2600 block of Balboa Street at about 7:20 p.m. Wednesday. No one was injured.

Police added late Friday night that the man under arrest is also connected with another incident that occurred at about 8 p.m. Tuesday in which a man entered a theater, in the 3600 block of Balboa Street, brandishing a handgun.
