No Arrests Made in String of SF Bank Robberies

No arrests have been made in three similar bank robberies across San Francisco on Tuesday, police said.

In each incident the suspect, a man in his 30s or 40s, handed over a demand note to a bank teller and then fled with money, police said.

The first bank robbery occurred in the 2400 block of California Street around 10:10 a.m. in the city’s Pacific Heights neighborhood, police said.

Later in the day at about 4:30 p.m., a man entered a bank in the 300 block of California Street in the Financial District, according to police.

He handed a demand note to one teller, who complied with the order, and also made off with money from another bank teller, police said.

He may have been armed with a handgun wrapped in a newspaper, police said.

Shortly before 5 p.m., a third bank robbery was reported in the 1800 block of Irving Street in the Sunset District, according to police.

The suspect in that robbery then fled west on Irving Street, police said.

No injuries were reported in the three robberies, police said.

The amount of money stolen in each robbery was not available this morning.
