A security door thwarted a man trying to rob a clothing store in San Francisco’s Marina District on Sunday evening, a police spokesman said today. The attempted robbery was reported at about 5:20 p.m. Sunday at a store in the 2000 block of Chestnut Street, police said. The business was a Gap Body that specializes in underwear and sportswear. The suspect entered Gap Body and brandished a silver handgun, and escorted an employee and a customer to the back of the store where the safe was located, police Lt. Troy Dangerfield said. The employee told the suspect that there was a security door that would automatically close when they entered, and the suspect refused to enter the room, Dangerfield said. The employee and customer went into the room and the door shut, locking the suspect out. The suspect, described only as a black man between 30 and 35 years old, ran away. No arrests have been made. No one was injured.
