Yesterday 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.
