Banks robbed at Stonestown Galleria, in Chinatown

Two banks were robbed within a couple hours Monday in San Francisco, police said.

In Chinatown, an unknown man walked into a bank with a note and handed it to the teller. He then walked out of the bank on Stockton Street at Washington Street around 3:20 p.m. with an undisclosed amount of cash.

He’s described only as between 25 and 35 years old.

Then at Stonestown Galleria, an unknown man in his late 20s entered a bank on the 500 block of Buckingham Way around 5:53 p.m. and handed the teller a note, demanding money.

Police said he then put the money in a satchel and fled westbound on Buckingham Way.

No detailed description of the suspected bank robbers has been released.

Neither of the tellers were injured. It’s unclear if the incidents are connected.
