July 10, 2013

Fugitive Watch is proud to announce that both female suspects in a brutal robbery of an elderly woman on a San Francisco Muni bus have been arrested. According to detectives, one of suspects was identified based on tip given to the Fugitive Watch Program. The anonymous caller recognized the suspect and gave Fugitive Watch the suspect’s name. Fugitive Watch passed along the name to the San Francisco Police Department who arrested her at a local detention facility where she was already in custody on unrelated charges.

The second suspect turned herself in after seeing herself on television. The names of both suspects are being withheld because they are juveniles.

The robbery of the woman on the Muni bus was caught on tape and the video was released by the San Francisco Police Department, asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect.
