A credit union near San Francisco’s Stonestown Galleria Mall was robbed Monday afternoon for the second time in less than two weeks.
The robbery was reported at about 1:30 p.m. Monday at the SF Fire Credit Union at 565 Buckingham Way. The previous robbery happened the afternoon of July 15, police said.
In Monday’s robbery, a woman entered the bank and approached a teller, took out a gun and demanded money.
The 19-year-old teller complied, and the woman fled with the cash.
In both robberies, the suspect was described as a black woman in her 30s, but police have not said whether the two incidents are connected, and no arrests have been made.
No one was injured in either robbery.
The second robbery prompted the credit union to close its today to allow employees to regroup, senior vice president Glenn Gortney said. It will reopen at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.
“We regret any inconvenience this may be causing to our membership, but we feel, under the circumstances, they’ll understand why we are taking this action,” Gortney said.
