SFPD Investigates FiDi Bank Robbery

Police are investigating a bank robbery that occurred in San Francisco’s Financial District on Wednesday afternoon.

Shortly after noon, police received a report of a bank robbery in the 400 Block of Montgomery Street near California Street.

The suspect, described as a man in his 40s, entered the bank and handed the bank teller a demand note. The teller complied, handing the suspect cash, according to police.

No suspects have been arrested in this case, nor in three other bank robberies that occurred across San Francisco on Tuesday, police said.

In each of the bank robberies on Tuesday, 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 on Tuesday occurred in the 2400 block of California Street around 10:10 a.m. in the city’s Pacific Heights neighborhood, police said.

Then, 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.

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

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

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

No injuries were reported in any of the robberies, police said.
