SF Man Arrested in Pacifica Strong-Arm Robbery

Police arrested a San Francisco man Wednesday suspected in a strong-arm robbery last month in Pacifica, police said.

Officers arrested 31-year-old Roland Black II at about 11:30 a.m. in San Francisco, according to police.

Police booked Black II into the San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of robbery and vandalism, police said. Black II had been on parole, according to police.

Black II allegedly followed a woman from San Francisco to her home in the 200 block of Crestmoor Circle in Pacifica June 23. The victim had been taking pictures of a landmark in San Francisco earlier in the day, police said.

On her way home, the victim saw a newer model black car with tinted windows following her, police said. When she arrived home, she saw the car park nearby and Black II allegedly get out, according to police.

Black II allegedly smashed the front passenger window of her car and tried to take the camera from her, police said. Black II allegedly won the struggle and drove from the area north on Crestmoor Circle, according to police.

The victim was uninjured and later identified Black II in a photo lineup, police said.
