An employee was pistol-whipped during a bank robbery in San Francisco’s Inner Sunset neighborhood on Friday afternoon, police said today. The robbery was reported at about 3 p.m. Friday at a bank in the 700 block of Irving Street. Three suspects wearing black masks entered the bank through a back entrance, then jumped over the counter and pistol-whipped a 42-year-old male employee, according to police. The robbers then grabbed cash from several drawers and fled in a white four-door vehicle, possibly a Ford Taurus, that was last seen driving north on Eighth Avenue, police said. The employee who was hit with the gun was not seriously injured, police said.

Anyone with information about the robbery is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411 with “SFPD” in the message.
