A South San Francisco woman was robbed of more than $10,000 in cash Saturday afternoon by an armed suspect. The victim had just cashed a check for more than $10,000 at a local bank and placed the money in her backpack when the robbery occurred around 4:15 p.m., according to police.

The woman was walking on El Camino Real near Southwood Drive when a red van pulled up next to her and a man, who she told police she did not recognize, jumped out. He pushed her down, grabbed the backpack, and pointed what appeared to be a small handgun, saying she should not call the police or he would kill her, police said.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 45 to 50 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall and 250 pounds. He was clean shaven with a dark complexion and black hair, and wearing a white jacket and white t-shirt, gray pants, sunglasses and a gold chain around his neck. His vehicle was described only as a newer model red van, possibly a minivan. Any witnesses to the incident are asked to call South San Francsico police at (650) 877-8900.
