to crash the front of an apple store. also last fall 16 members of the so calmed rainbow girls were finally arrested after years of burglaries like these where they swarm in, grab items and run off. the store does not have a security guard despite the high end merchandise. >> whatever the price is, i think it was absurd a store would carry this without any security standing around. the good news is nobody here was injured but the thieves were seen getting away. one woman says she was walking her dog by the precidio when she was surrounded by a pack of coyotes. they took off when she
screamed. for now dogs are not allowed on the presidio or the ridge trail. a good samaritan being called a hero tonight for saving a couple from being mauled by two dogs. reporter jennifer mcgraw spoke with a man who jumped in to break up that attack. >> got out of the truck. he was just yelling bloody murder. >> reporter: victor torrez relived the moments 24 hours after trying to help save a couple attempting to be mauled by a dog. >> i hit the dog over the head and that's when they let go of the other people. >> reporter: torrez was driving over the bridge on simpson lane when he saw the vicious attack. >> the dogs were just shredding him to pieces. >> reporter: his brave instincts may have helped save the suspect. >> i just felt the teeth they
sunk in. >> somehow torrez was able to get away and several others stopped and helped rush the tree to the hospital. >> - - helped rush the three to the hospital. >> worse feeling i've ever felt. >> i'm very proud. i'm lucky he didn't pass by like most of the people that probably did. >> reporter: torrez says he can't take all the credit. >> there's good people. i wasn't the only one who helped. >> he just hopes somebody would do the same for his family. >> reporter: one man had to undergo surgery. his condition is unknown so are their two dogs and puppies. we hope to have more information come thursday. in marysville, jennifer mcgraw for kpix5. run away horses are back where they belong tonight after running wild in golden gate park. the horses were seen roaming the park. a lock at the corral somehow popped open and the heard saw
their chance to escape. the horses are part of a pilot program to introduce horse riding to the public like they were used at the turn of the century. >> horse back riding at golden gate park was a big amenity. many of the trails were built for horses. >> a new lock has been installed so that the horses don't get out again. >> a morning walk, no big deal. >> 23 horses roaming lose. we have some rainfall something you typically don't see this time of year. winds in santa rosa, bodega bay. almost down to petaluma. it will stay overnight tonight but there will be some rain in san francisco and everyone san jose getting some showers. overnight tonight impacting your morning commute tomorrow.
why? strong area of low pressure grabbing a cold front all the way down into northern california. some spots up by crescent city and wireka may get two inches of rainfall by tomorrow morning. we'll see the rain in the north baby 2:00, 3:00. it hits the golden gate at 7:00 a.m. some of that rainfall pulls the oil out of the roadways. so the roads are going to be slipperier than you think they might be. so add time to your commute. the average for san francisco for the month of june is sp-pbt 16 of an inch. we may get that tomorrow morning. hayward about .1 of an inch. concord about .1 of an inch.
light showers in the north bay. showers are likely in and around both san francisco and oakley. east of vallejo. we get dry friday. the normal is 81. oakland tomorrow is 67. morning rain showers. freemont 70. napa 68, san francisco 64 degrees. very chilly friday, saturday and sunday. second weekend in june not going to feel like it not even hitting 70 degrees. when do we get back to normal? that will be the middle of next week, 80s inland and 60s by the bay. a lot of graduation ceremonies coming up tomorrow and friday. we might need a jacket. >> maybe an umbrella. >> perhaps an umbrella. if you have some of the schools are having an outdoor party tomorrow. umbrella. yeah. >> there you go. >> it is what it is. >> welcome to the bay area. >> speaking of the bay area. a lot of people jumping up and down after tonight's big win.
at the end of game two... tonight, he looked more enegerized and got big help from his lebron james stopped at the notion that he looked worn out at the end of game two. tonight he looked energized. got a lot of help from his teammates and still it was not enough for the cavaliers. the only thing missing for the warriors this postseason has been a dominant game from clay thompson but he delivered tonight. he had 16 in the first quarter. 30 for the game and as a team the warriors hit a finals record seven shots from downtown in the quarter. in the second, more sloppy defense for curry. they led by six at intermission. but the cavs were on fire out of the locker room. tic-tac-toe passing lebron
james with the three. irving was lethal tonight. usually the warriors dominate the third quarter instead cleveland won it by 11 points. cavs up by two with less than a minute to go. lebron walk into a three. they played the defense to seal the deal. andre iguodala strips the ball from lebron aep -- and that's the ball game. the warriors close it out on an 11-0 run. they can finish it off on friday. you know irving and lebron had it going most of the game. but that's pretty taxing to two one on one all of the game. >> i gave everything i had tonight. win, lose or draw you live with the results. k d comes, hits the big three puts them up one.
i will probably be replaying that play for a while. to find a way to win was just an amazing accomplishment. and set us up for you know hopefully a great night friday. where we can back it up. >> incredible finish. more ahead. who's the best giants pitcher right now? the rookie states his case when we come back.

still take two out of three in that series. and when i arrived in cleveland ken and elizabeth, defend the land cleveland. that was the idea. they may be waving the white towel in cleveland after what happened tonight. >> very cruel, very cruel but very true. one more to go. and then it's all over. >> we could have a sweep on friday night. >> and the parade. >> there's that. thanks. >> we'll be right back. for years, centurylink has been promising fast internet to small businesses. but for many businesses, it's out of reach. why promise something you can't deliver?
