SAN FRANCISCO —
Two separate banks were robbed in San Francisco's Financial District on Thursday afternoon, a police spokesman said.
The first robbery was reported at about 1:05 p.m. at the Bank of the West at 1 Front St.
The suspect walked into the bank, approached an employee and demanded money, claiming that he had a gun, according to police.
He simulated that he had a gun by placing his right hand in the right pocket of his jacket. The suspect then turned around and walked out of the bank, police said.
About a half hour later, another bank was robbed in the first block of Post Street.
The suspect approached a teller window with a note demanding money. The teller complied and handed over cash to the suspect, who then fled from the bank, police said.
Police spokesman Officer Albie Esparza said the description of the suspect, a man in his 50s, was similar in both cases but he did not know if the robberies were committed by the same person.
No one was hurt in either case.
Anyone with information about the bank robberies is asked to call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or to send a tip by text message to TIP411 with "SFPD" in the message.
