A bank in San Francisco’s Noe Valley neighborhood was robbed at gunpoint by two men Monday afternoon, police said today.
The two men went to the Umpqua Bank at 3938 24th St. at about 2:30 p.m. and one suspect, a man in his 20s, threatened a 47-year-old woman working at the bank with a handgun, an Umpqua branch manager confirmed.
The other suspect, a man in his 40s, walked behind the counter and grabbed cash from open drawers, police said.
The two men then ran from the bank with the cash and may have jumped into a waiting black Cadillac Escalade, police said.
A separate robbery involving three men in a black Escalade happened later in the afternoon near Alamo Square Park, police said.
A 39-year-old woman was walking near Fulton and Scott streets at about 4:15 p.m. when two men approached her and one grabbed her purse from her shoulder, according to police.
She struggled with them briefly, but the man in his 20s took the purse and the two suspects jumped into a waiting black Escalade with a third man driving, police said.
No arrests have been made in either case.
