SFPD release video of brazen Mission St. restaurant robbery

San Francisco police are hoping to generate leads with a newly released surveillance video showing a brazen restaurant robbery in the city’s Outer Mission neighborhood.

Police are looking for a man who can be clearly seen and later heard in parts of the video.

The suspect described as a black male, 30 to 40 years of age, approximately 6’2” tall, weighing 250 lbs., was last seen wearing a black hoodie, red bandana covering his mouth, blue pants, a blue shoulder bag and a black cloth over a simulated gun.

The video shows the suspect smashing the glass door of a closed McDonald’s restaurant on the 5400 block of Mission Street early last month.

Once inside he orders the employees to open the safe and then to open all the cash register drawers.

Investigators say he threatened the employees with what appeared to be a handgun under cloth. According to police, the entire incident in which $1,200 was stolen, lasted seven minutes total.

Nobody was hurt in the robbery. Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact the Anonymous Tip Line at (415) 575-4444, or Text A Tip to TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD.
