board meeting where a decision apparently will be made, kate? >> reporter: absolutely, dan and ama. this story has really sparked debate across the country and there are many who want the murals at george washington high permanently removed and others like danny glover who you mentioned and you'll hear from in a moment who feels like covering up the murals in any way is the equivalent of book burning. take a look in june the school board voted to paint over the murals that would destroy the 13 frescos called the life of washington painted by an artist 85 years ago but friday the school board passed a resolution for the artwork to be covered with panels instead of paint. that's up for a vote tonight. we spoke to a president of the school board who hopes the resolution passes but danny glover weighed in today. he's a washington high grad and is very much against covering the mural in any way. >> why are we talking about
boarding it up? it's absurd. boarded up? in some sense to hide it from our view, art has to make us feel uncomfortable. the responsibility of art, the fear is uncomfortable. >> with this alternative, there are folks on both sides that won't be happy with it. i hope what we ultimately end up deciding is that we'll put up art that inspires students instead of dehumanizes them. >> reporter: the mural was funded in the 1930s and was meant to show george washington in a critical light as a slave owner and leader of a nation that killed native americans. the debate is raging on here tonight. the school board meeting just started and outside before it started, there were people with signs very express sieve signs one. we'll bring you the latest online, on social media and
right here at 11:00. back to you. >> thank you. a fiercely passionate debate. kate has tweeted about this story and will continue to tweet updates. follow her at kate abc 7 and look for her live report tonight at 11:00. new at 6:00, santa clara county is getting a new voting system for the 2020 elections. this is the first update to the technology since 2003. the new system includes high-speed scanners and a device that should speed up the counting of ballots. right now all the ballots have to be returned to the register's office. they have to take counting which could mean we learn the outcome of races much earlier. new at 6:00, pictures of people suspected of stealing 16 phones from the apple store on walnut creek sunday morning. three people entered the store, grabbed the phones and ran out to waiting car and took off. none of them have been caught. the napa county sheriff's office just released this mug shot of a man suspected of multiple sex crimes.
brian sales is charged with five felonies including rape and sexual battery. detectives haven't released details but want anyone with information to give them a call. terror in san francisco, a woman was attacked as she was trying to get into her home. her building security camera captured the whole struggle. and it was intense. and the security guard there trying to help. the victim was not seriously injured but is really shaken up understandably. abc 7 news anchor kumasi is live. the video is really stunning. >> reporter: it is really stunning and that woman still shaken up about what happened. when we spoke with police here earlier today, they said they were able to arrest the man a block away from where that happened but earlier today, the woman told me that man told her that the woman inside, her security person was a robot and he was trying to get inside to kill her. she says this whole thing was really terrifying. it's supposed to feel good to get home after a long day but
instead of relaxing, this woman ended up fighting for her life in the stunning video, you can see her trying to get through the front door of her building. when a pan man believed to be homeless grabs her pulling her away from the door onto the ground. >> the only thing going through my head was you have to save yourself. you have to save yourself. >> reporter: she struggles to get away able to crawl inside as the man grabs her legs. he tries again to get inside but they are able to close the door. after his arrest, his words haunt her. >> he said what are you going to do? call the cops? they don't care. they aren't going to do anything to me and he kept repeating that to me. this guy had no fear of the city or the cops and that to me is a new level of fear for me because if the cops are not here to protect us, then what is protecting us from getting hurt over and over again? >> what would you say to her and other residents that don't feel safe going home? >> i would say if you ever don't feel safe, call 911, let us
know. give us a description of the person or situation. have an officer come out and we'll take care of it for you. >> reporter: she says it took officers 30 minutes from the time of the first call to arrive but sfpd says it was a lower priority call because it was reported as a man standing outside. when things escalated, they got an officer to her house in three minutes. >> this is the building. it is steps away from the site of the embarcadero safe navigation center. she's afraid when it goes up, more incidents like that might happen. sky 7 flew over the site. the group is suing city of san francisco to stop the proprosed homeless navigation center. she hopes her experience will serve as a wakeup call. >> this should never happen to anyone. i was trying to get into my ter: nice tell me centeroe will have additional security measures in place but right now
it's too far out to detail what those will be. reporting live, a mabc 7 news. >> what can you tell us about the man we saw on the video? >> reporter: so police tell us he's 25 years old. his name is austin james vincent. he does not have a local san francisco address but he's facing several imprisonme imprisonment, battery and more. police are looking for the thieves that stole an estimated half million worth of goods from an suv rented from espn. among those things, belongings of alex rodriguez. vic lee is live with the followup. >> reporter: the sfpd says auto burglaries are down 1 1% so far this year, but there still have been pretty high profile auto burglaries here. an urn was stolen from a car near sea cliff, an urn filled
with the ashes of loved ones, a tourist was run over but auto burglars trying to escape from the legion of honor and now this. on sunday, yet another high-profile car burglary. this one happened here at fourth a streets. missing from the car, half a million dollars worth of jewelry, camera gear, a computer and other luggage. one of the victims, baseball star and sports announcer alex rodriguez who had just finished his broadcasting duties at oracle park. espn rented the suv for the production crew. the break in happened while rodriguez and his crew were having dinner. the car was parked across the street. the story was a topic of the day in the neighborhood where signs like these appear on car windows. >> every block they are broken in. everywhere. >> reporter: commercial realtor larry matthews says his car has been broken into at least five
times. there was a big police response sunday night including officers dusting for fingerprints. even the night police captain arrived here. many local victims of car break-ins here say they never got the treatment rodriguez was given. >> they have never done it for me. [ laughter ] >> okay? >> reporter: the mayor says victims of auto burglaries might consider calling 311 instead of 911 for a better response from police. >> if you're calling specifically because you've had a car break in, there is a completely different section that you can do a report. >> reporter: jack mcelderry cloud works at a nearby garage. he made an offer a-rod may not be able to refuse next time he's in town. >> call me. i'd be happy to let you into the garage down below. it would be nice and safe. >> reporter: larry mathews has a better idea. >> take the bus. >> reporter: good idea. the sfpd says the response, the
size of that response sunday night was because of the value of the stolen goods. in fact, think say that any loss greater than $15,000 would require the same kind of response and by the way, the department says any victim of an auto burglary can request the fingerprinting of their vehicles. vic lee, abc 7 news. >> that's good to know. thank you, vic. evacuation order haves been reduced to warnings for people living near the moose fire. it started just over 24 hours ago off the moose road near hopland which is 46 miles north of santa rosa. cal fire estimates 225 acres have burned so far and that the fire is 25% contained. no reports of injuries or damage. today is a spare the air day and not because of the fire although some smoke is visible here in the bay area. you can see it's a bit hazy. tomorrow is also a spare the air day. i want to bring in abc 7 news
anchor spencer christian to check on the current conditions for us. spencer? >> it is hot and dry near the fire. let me give you a look of current conditions where the fire is burning. it's 92 and relative humidity down to 28%. wind doesn't appear to be a major factor at the moment. steady winds 6 miles per hour but there are occasional gusts right now experiencing gusts to 12 miles per hour later in the evening it will cool down. it will go up a bit but hard to say just what will happen with the wind conditions. i'm sure that's a major concern for the firefighters. i'll have more details a little later. the jury is still out in the ghost ship trial. jurors started deliberating july 21st. today was day seven because they are off on fridays, saturdays and sundays ask didn't meet last monday. the days they haven't met you see in red, laura anthony has a look what defense attorneys think the jury has done so far.
>> reporter: well, hi, ama, defense attorneys had quite a reaction to what happened this afternoon. the jury broke its silence, sent a note to the judge and asked for a good portion of testimony to be read back to them. that includes that of nikko that signed the original ghost ship lease with derick almena and that i want to hear ryan o'keefe's testimony. again, he was a volunteer at the concert the night of the fire. and perhaps most importantly, they want to hear the testimony of almena himself word for word. >> it's no surprise the majority of the questions and attention is focused on almena. we said max is innocent and never should have been prosecuted or involved in a crime until prosecution. he should have never been put in jail for two years. the fbi should have never kicked in his door and arrested him and now we're seeing deb ragliberat that more reflect almena.
>> reporter: it looks like it will take another day or two for the jury to hear back all of this testimony. the estimate is for every two days of testimony, it will take a day to read that back. a court clerk will literally sit in the deliberation room with the jurors and read both the questions and the answers to them. >> nikko and his mother both testified. eye might his testimony be important? >> reporter: yeah, they both testified early in the trial, ama. nikko was one of those that signed onto the original lease but within a couple weeks, he told the jury during his testimony that he had second thoughts about what derrick almena was doing to the property and changes he was making. bouchard was concerned there were no permits and permission from the owner to make changes. his mother testified that she actually got into the equation and sat down with almena and his
wife to talk about permits but he and his wife didn't want to hear about going through the proper channels, at least according to hear. laura anthony, abc 7 news. >> thank you. we're sending u datpdates throu the abc 7 news app. how can children go back to school when there is no school to go to? that's the issue facing hundreds of south bay students who thought they would be starting class at a brand-new charter school. only on abc 7 news tonight, meet a family searching for answers about the incident that answers about the incident that left their son we're here for you. so chances are, you've seen us around the house. or around the yard... on the shelf... or even out in the field. your mom knew she could always count on us... and your grandma did too. because for over 150 years, we've been right by your side. advancing health and nutrition for everyone you love. so, from all of us at bayer...

that we can, you know, make this high performance happen. >> reporter: dreams dashed last week when san jose unified told school administrators it would not provide promise with space due to concerns over low enrollment. >> the reason they are unable to open is because of the failure to secure the necessary enrollment tied to the lease agreement and the sense it specifies what type of space they want. >> reporter: the district says the academy failed to provide a fully executed agreement by the deadline last spring. school officials offer a differing view saying they asked for modifications in terms of the square footage they were to use but didn't hear back all summer. >> we were just waiting for response from the district. we've been emailing, calling, just anyway that we can get any response. >> just because i can't afford to live in south san jose where they have good schools doesn't mean that my kids shouldn't also get a good education. >> reporter: in a statement, mayor sam liccardo said rather than continuing to seek every
possible road block, san jose unified officials should recognize promise academy can become a great asset to the city and pathway to opportunity for san jose's children. promise filed multiple lawsuits against the district in the past and weighing future options. >> a lot of our kids are being affected. by stall tactics from the district. that's really what it boils down to. >> reporter: these parents scrambling to find a new school for their kids. in san jose, chris nguyen, abc 7 news. all right. we have some intense heat that we're dealing with now. >> we do triple digits. weather anchor spencer christian is tracking it for us closely. >> try to find ways to beat the heat over the next few days if you can. here is a live look at the doppler 7. we have a noticeable absence of marine layer. sunny skies across the region. it's breezy and warm. gusts 17 miles an hour and half moon bay and surface wind around the bay area from 12 to nearly 20 miles per hour. this is a view, lovely view from
