An invaluable musical instrument was stolen from a San Francisco musical school Sunday afternoon, a San Francisco police officer said.

Two suspects entered a school in the first block of Fell Street and took a Bubenreuth cello, priced at $10,000, sometime between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday, Officer Carlos Manfredi said.

A substantial reward for the cello’s safe return is being offered through the Police Department.

The suspects are described as a white 25- to 30-year-old man with dirty blonde hair and a similarly aged female with a thin build standing about 5 feet 7 inches tall with brown hair and weighing about 120 pounds, Manfredi said.

A video from the school shows the pair walking into the school and then walking out with a cello in their arms, Manfredi said.

In the video, Manfredi said the two are seen meandering around the school before stealing the cello.

The officer said the duo is not believed to be connected or familiar with the school.
Police are asking anyone with information about the theft to call Inspector Brian Danker at (415) 614-3463.
