The 40-something gentleman walked into a bank on the 200 block of Valencia Street at 1:02 p.m. Thursday and gave the teller a note, according to police.
He wanted money. The teller refused and notified her supervisor, who then called the police. The 40-something aborted his robbery to quietly, and presumably quickly, leave the bank.
No arrests have been made.
While police do not report where a crime took place, there is a Chase Manhattan branch at 299 Valencia Street. We will update this story if we are able to get more information.
Bank robberies are not as uncommon as one would think. In January of 2013, a bank on the same block was successfully robbed at 6:10 p.m. And in February of this year, the Wells Fargo on Mission and 22nd Street was robbed.
