Tuesday was the wrong day to allegedly rob a San Francisco bank, Mark Wright learned. Unfortunately, he learned it the hard way.
According to San Francisco Police Department spokesperson Officer Carlos Manfredi (that's his tweet above — he's worth a follow!), officers were called to the 200 block of Market Street at 10:31 yesterday after a robbery in progress was reported.
Manfredi says that Wright "told a bank employee that he was armed and demanded money. The bank teller, fearing for her safety, complied with the suspect’s demands and handed over U.S. currency."
Wright then fled on foot, Manfredi alleges. Arriving officers, who had been informed of Wright's description and direction in which he was headed, nabbed him on Main Street between Mission and Market Streets, less than a block from the scene of the crime.
Wright, who is 25 years old and has no known address, was booked on several outstanding warrants and suspicion of felony robbery. As of publication time, he remains in San Francisco County Jail.
