A man arrested for a robbery of a cellphone store in San Francisco earlier this month has been tied to five other similar robberies recently, a police spokeswoman said today. Christopher Bailey, 38, was arrested after robbing the business in the 1500 block of Sloat Boulevard on Oct. 5. Officers surrounded the area and arrested him following a brief foot pursuit, police said.
Following the arrest, Bailey was also linked to five other cellphone store robberies elsewhere in San Francisco since early September, police spokeswoman Sgt. Danielle Newman said. The heists occurred at about 5:15 p.m. on Sept. 7 in the 200 block of West Portal Avenue, at 5:08 p.m. on Sept. 12 at Mission and Ney streets, at about 11:40 a.m. on Sept. 18 in the 300 block of Ashton Avenue, around 2:25 p.m. on Oct. 2 in the 1800 block of Irving Street and at about 10:50 a.m. on Oct. 4 in the 2000 block of Irving, Newman said. Bailey has been booked into custody on suspicion of eight counts of robbery, one count of possession of stolen property and resisting arrest, according to police.
