Armed suspect flees on foot after robbing Laurel Heights bank

A female suspect robbed a bank at gunpoint in San Francisco’s Laurel Heights neighborhood on Thursday afternoon, police said.

Around 1:55 p.m., officers responded to a report of an armed bank robbery in the 3400 block of California Street in the Laurel Village shopping center, according to police.

A woman entered the bank, approached the teller and handed him a note demanding money. The woman also pointed a handgun at the teller, police said.

After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect, described as a woman in her 30s, then fled the bank on foot.

Responding officers were unable to locate the suspect, who remained at large Friday. Anyone with information about the robbery is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
