Robbery on Muni bus in Potrero Hill ends in arrest

A Muni bus passenger pulled a gun on two people and robbed them before fleeing, and then attempting to rob a third person, was arrested earlier this week while trying to escape — on a Muni bus.

Derrick Woods, 19, was on the 9-San Bruno as it passed 16th Street Oct. 20 when the incident occurred, according to police.

Woods pulled out a handgun and robbed two people on the bus around 7:30 p.m. and then got off at 18 Street and Potrero Avenue and tried but failed to rob a third person. The victim fought back and Woods’ attempted robbery failed.

Woods then tried to get away by boarding the same Muni line he had robbed two people on, but was arrested by a Mission Station police officer.

He was booked into County Jail on suspicion of robbery, firearm possession and aggravated assault.
