A group who robbed a series of banks in San Francisco and San Mateo counties in the past few months allegedly struck again last week in San Francisco’s Richmond District, FBI officials said today. A group of at least three men robbed a First Republic Bank at 6001 Geary Blvd. on Thursday afternoon, according to the FBI. The same suspects are also believed to be connected to the robberies of a Bank of America at 1007 Taraval St. in San Francisco on June 6, as well as two bank robberies in San Francisco and Millbrae on June 3 and another on April 19 at a Wells Fargo at 725 Irving St., FBI spokesman Peter Lee said.
In each case, witnesses described three suspects entering the bank armed with at least one handgun and taking money from teller drawers. During the most recent robbery on Thursday, one of the suspects also struck a bank employee in the head, San Francisco police said.
The suspects are described as three black men between 20 and 35 years old, two of whom are about 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall while the other is between 5 feet 8 and 5 feet 10 inches tall, FBI officials said.
The suspects have slim to medium builds and were seen wearing thick jackets, gloves and clothing to mask their heads and faces, according to the FBI.
