Suspect Who Robbed Customer at Downtown Financial Services Store Remains at Large

A man who robbed a woman at a financial services store in downtown San Francisco on Monday afternoon remains at large, police said.

At about 2:40 p.m. on Monday, the victim entered the store at the intersection of Kearny and Geary streets, which provides services such as Western Union transfers, check-cashing, payroll advances and car title loans, and handed money to a female teller, according to police.

The suspect, described as a man in his 40s, entered the store and demanded that the teller hand over the customer’s money and that if she didn’t he would shoot the customer, police said.

The teller pulled an audible alarm and the suspect then took the customer’s wallet and removed money from it, officers said.

Police said the suspect then fled the store on foot and was last seen heading west on Geary Street.

The suspect has not yet been identified or arrested, according to police.
