Van Ness Bank Robber Shoves Aside Customer In Rush To Get Cash

A bank along San Francisco’s Van Ness Avenue was robbed on Monday afternoon by a man who pushed aside a customer before demanding cash, police said today.

The robbery was reported at about 1:40 p.m. at a bank in the 500 block of Van Ness Avenue, which is near McAllister.

The suspect, believed to be a man in his mid 20s, entered the bank, pushed aside a customer at a window and demanded money from a teller, according to police.

No weapon was seen and no one was injured in the robbery, police said.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
