Friendly Felon’s Filching Foiled, Firearm Fake

The SFPD says:

Attempted Robbery Arrest:

On May 24th at 6:40 pm, officers responded to a call of a robbery at a warehouse on the 1500 block of Indiana. They met with a 38 year old employee who was the victim of a robbery attempt. He told the officers that while he was working, the suspect came to the open warehouse door and asked to use the bathroom. Initially the victim said no but changed his mind and allowed the suspect in. The suspect entered the bathroom and emerged shortly after armed with a handgun which he pointed at the victim. The suspect demanded the victim’s wallet to which the victim replied that he was not in possession of one. The suspect rephrased his demand by adding a “please” and the victim once again repeated that he had no wallet. The suspect then told the frightened victim that he seemed like a nice guy and that he was sorry for trying to rob him. The suspect then fled the warehouse on foot. Officers searching the area for the suspect located him walking along 25th St. He was detained and positively identified by the victim. The suspect was found to be in possession of a BB gun which resembled a real firearm. The suspect was on felony probation for aggravated assault and had an outstanding no bail warrant for aggravated assault. He was taken into custody and booked at Bayview Station on multiple charges including attempted robbery, and burglary. (SFPD Case No. 140434878)
