Previously: Crime Blotter, Thursday Feb. 11: Marina Restaurant Robbery, Market Street Hot Prowl



Three men robbed a cashier and two patrons at gunpoint at an International House of Pancakes in San Francisco’s Marina District Wednesday night, police said.
The robbery occurred at about 9 p.m. at an IHOP at 2299 Lombard St.

One man burst in and confronted the cashier, holding a handgun to the back of her head and demanding money from the cash register, police said.

The suspect grabbed the 41-year-old woman’s hair and forced her to the register, according to police.

The cashier complied and handed over an undisclosed amount of money, after which two other men who had been standing outside entered the restaurant and robbed two male patrons in the dining room.

One of them also had a gun and the two victims, ages 40 and 49, were robbed of their wallets, police said.

None of the victims was injured, but police said the cashier was traumatized by the incident.
