A tipster just emailed us to say that his girlfriend Stephanie was walking around Sue Bierman Park in San Francisco's Financial District today and happened across a creepy-masked busker who looked strangely familiar.
The tipster flipped through the photos on the Facebook page of Yeiner Perez's former circus troupe ClownSnotBombs, and sure enough, he found a photo of Perez wearing the exact same outfit (above, right).
Stephanie elaborates on the encounter:
A bunch of us went to the Ferry building to eat lunch and we saw who we suspect Yeiner Perez walking on stilts up and down the piers. He was generally non-threatening, though he did seem really annoyed when we didn't give him money for taking a picture. [...]
For the record, I think if the naked BART man had not harassed women and other bystanders, I wouldn't think anything about the BART video.
Perez was placed on a psychiatric hold following his well-documented rampage through the 16th Street BART station last month. He was subsequently jailed for 48 hours on suspicion of misdemeanor assault, but was released.
