Video: SF police searching for restaurant robbery suspect

San Francisco police are asking the public for help in locating a suspect who held employees in an Outer Mission restaurant at gunpoint in November and stole more than $1,200 in cash.

The suspect entered the closed and locked restaurant in the 5400 block of Mission Street around 3:30 a.m. on Nov. 8 by breaking the front glass door, police said Wednesday.

The suspect is then seen simulating a handgun under a black cloth, and ordering all employees to sit on the ground at the back of the store. He ordered one employee to open the safe and cash register, and fled with cash
taken from both, police said.

The suspect was described as a black male 30 to 40 years old, around 6 feet 2 inches tall and 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue pants and carrying a blue shoulder bag. He had a
red bandanna over his mouth and a black cloth he used to simulate a gun.

Police have released surveillance video, and are asking anyone with information on this suspect or crime to call the Anonymous Tip Line at
(415) 575-4444, or Text A Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPDCrimeRobberySan FranciscoSFSFPD
