Frederick Black, 38, of San Francisco was arrested on suspicion of at least 10 bank robberies, Esparza said, the majority of which were in the Financial District.

Black was reportedly arrested in connection with the robbery of a credit union on Nov. 26 and on several outstanding warrants.

He was located by police Dec. 27 in the Mid-Market area, Esparza said.
