Twentysomething Man Steals Cameras At Gunpoint

Police are seeking a suspect who stole cameras at gunpoint from a store in San Francisco’s Lower Nob Hill neighborhood on Wednesday afternoon.

The robbery was reported at about 3:30 p.m. in the 800 block of Sutter Street, which is near Jones Street. The suspect, believed to be in his 20s, entered the store and grabbed the cameras from a shelf, police said.

The suspect then headed out of the store and as he exited, he showed a firearm in his waistband to an employee at the back of the store and told the employee not to move, according to police.

No one was injured in the robbery, and the suspect remained at large this morning. Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.

    Lower Nob Hill? Seriously? How about upper Tenderloin?

      I call it the Tendernob. But that area is more Lower Nob Hill than Upper Tenderloin.
