Mission police officers arrested 53-year-old Fernando Sylvestry on Tuesday afternoon on Mission Street and booked him on charges of burglary, robbery and narcotics violations, according to a police report.
Sylvestry, a San Francisco resident, is suspected of walking into the Wells Fargo at 22nd and Mission streets on Monday at 3:30 p.m. and passing a note to the teller.
He allegedly wanted money and she handed it over, but also pressed an internal security alarm, according to the police.
Police said they recognized Sylvestry from photos provided by the bank’s surveillance video.
They spotted him on Tuesday at 2 p.m. at Mission and 18th streets, just a few blocks north of the bank.
