Two Banks Got Robbed in The Mission on Saturday – Just Two Hours Apart
Police in San Francisco are investigating two separate bank robberies that happened on Saturday just two hours apart.
According to the police, officers first responded to a report of a robbery around 10:05 a.m. at a bank in the 4000 block of Mission Street. At the scene, officers learned a male suspect entered the bank, threatened an employee, and demanded cash. After the employee complied, the suspect fled the scene, police said. Police described the suspect as a man in his 40s.
Two hours later, around 12:10 p.m., officers learned of another robbery happening at a bank in the 2300 block of 16th Street. In that incident, a suspect entered the bank, demanded cash, and — after an employee complied with his demands — he fled. The suspect was described as a man between the ages of 25 and 35 years old, according to police.
Police haven’t said whether the two robberies are related. In both cases, no arrests have been made. Anyone with information about either case is encouraged to call the Police Department’s tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” at the start of the message.
