Er, scratch that. The (alleged) robber perched on a Telegraph Hill cliff escaped at around 10 p.m. Wednesday night, soon after SFPD left the scene per the suspect's request. SFPD sent out the follow missive: "[A]t approximately 10pm, a neighbor who was aware that a burglary suspect was possibly hiding on the hillside, heard noises coming from the hillside area and observed a male sliding down the hill toward an opening in a fence. The neighbor observed the male subsequently peer through the fence and then walk out. The neighbor contacted police who responded to the area to search for the male but were unable to locate the subject."

The suspect is described as a 5' 7",170-lbs white man in his 20s or 30s. He is still at-large. Amazing.
