Police have released surveillance footage and are asking for the public’s help to identify and locate a man who allegedly robbed a San Francisco gas station at gunpoint last month.
At about 10:20 a.m. on Dec. 13, a man entered the front door of the gas station in the 1200 block of La Playa Street in the city’s Outer Sunset neighborhood, according to police.
After grabbing a bag of potato chips, the man approached a store employee, police said.
When the employee opened the register, the suspect pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the employee, then walked behind the counter and took $400 in cash, according to police.
Afterward, the suspect fled south on La Playa Street. Police described him as a 30 to 40 year old black man, standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 190 pounds. He wore a black hooded jacket, blue jeans, and black shoes with white soles.
Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444. Callers can also text a tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with “SFPD.”
