About 3,000 people -- mostly teenage girls -- arrived early Monday at the Stonestown Galleria mall hours before the scheduled appearance of Robert Pattinson. The 22-year-old British actor plays Edward Cullen, a vampire who falls in love with a human, in the film scheduled for release Nov. 21. He also played Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter movies.
Police canceled Pattinson's evening autograph session at the Hot Topic store after the crowd began pushing its way inside the mall. One girl reportedly broke her nose in the crush. Hot Topic employees declined comment. San Francisco police did not immediately return calls.
