A man was arrested Tuesday in connection with a bank robbery in downtown San Francisco, police said.
At around 10:30 a.m., Police responded to a robbery in progress at the Citibank on the 200 block of Market Street. The suspect, later identified at 25-year-old Mark Wright, reportedly threatened a bank employee into giving him money, telling the employee on a “demand note” that he was armed. Fearing for her safety, the bank employee complied with his demands and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspect then fled on foot, only to be caught by police a block away, in front of the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank on the corner of Market and Main Streets, police said.
Wright has been charged with felony robbery and several outstanding warrants. He does not have a local address, police said. He is being held at the San Francisco County Jail.
