policeblotter_sfa.jpgYesterday saw a harrowing crime come to a victorious end at a South of Market bank. As the Ex reports, two suspects approached a 51-year-old woman while she was using the ATM, robbed her and subsequently kidnapped her.

The crime occurred at the Wells Fargo Bank at Fourth and Brannan St. At around 2:30pm yesterday, one of the suspects, a 38-year-old woman, allegedly pulled the victim’s hair and demanded she enter her PIN and withdraw money. The victim was then reportedly forced into a GMC truck driven by the other suspect, a 55-year-old man.

Police found the car at Sixth and Harrison St. thanks to the quick thinking of a bank manager, who wrote down the license plate number of the vehicle. SFPD then freed the victim and arrested the suspects on charges of robbery with force and kidnapping.

    That’s really brazen. A sunny afternoon on a weekday next to a Starbucks, and no gun. The design of ATMs are conducive to robberies and all users are potential victims, being enclosed and reading a screen. Always gotta watch your back, literally, when using those crime machines.
