Suspected bank robber’s escape foiled by police in Financial District

Police cruisers roared down Market Street and foiled a suspected bank robber’s escape in the Financial District early Tuesday.

Mark Wright, 25, was arrested on Main Street between Mission and Market streets on suspicion of felony robbery after he allegedly handed a Citibank teller a note saying he was armed and demanding money, police said.

The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and he left the bank on foot, police said. When officers responded at 10:31 a.m. to an emergency call, they were told the direction the robber headed and detained Wright.

Wright was also booked into County Jail on several unrelated warrants.

Police said he has no known local address.

No one was injured during the heist.
