Police announce arrest in S.F. bank robberies

A man suspected of robbing two downtown San Francisco banks in less than a week was arrested Saturday, San Francisco police announced today.

Kevin Seltenrich, 56, is suspected of robbing a Wells Fargo Bank in the city's Financial District on Saturday afternoon, and a United Commercial Bank north of City Hall the previous Tuesday, according to police.

In both robberies, the suspect displayed a hold-up note but no weapon, and placed the money in a blue shoulder bag before running off, police said.

Shortly after Saturday's robbery, information from a federal arrest warrant for probation violation led police to a residential hotel in the 400 block of Eddy Street, where Seltenrich was staying, police said.

Seltenrich was arrested without incident and remains in federal custody, police said. Bay City News
