A man brandishing a knife robbed the Wells Fargo Bank on Castro Street on Monday morning before fleeing into nearby Pioneer Park, police reported.
Police received a call on the incident at 11:02 a.m., after the robber approached a teller and displayed a knife with a five-inch blade. He then fled into Pioneer Park, police say, getting away with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was injured.
The suspect is described as Asian, just under 6 feet tall, of medium build and wearing a green jacket. He wore a hood over his head, which may have shielded his face from security cameras.
