Armed suspects flee Union Square robbery in taxi

A 22-year-old man was forced to withdraw cash from an ATM in Union Square by two women with a handgun who fled in a cab Monday morning, police said.

The man was outside a store at Powell and O’Farrell streets when one of the women asked him to help her cash a check around 5:20 a.m., police said.

When the man said no, the woman flashed a handgun in her waistband and told him to pull out cash from a nearby ATM where the other suspect was waiting, police said.

The man pulled out an undisclosed amount of cash and handed it to the women — one described as between 30 and 33 years old, the other as between 35 and 40 years old — who fled in a taxi.

No arrests have been made. The man was not injured.
