Gunmen rob Noe Valley bar twice in one week
For the second time in five nights, armed men brandishing handguns robbed The Bar on Dolores in Noe Valley, making off with cash before fleeing on foot.
Thursday night about 11:15 p.m., three armed suspects in their early- to mid-20s entered a bar in the 1600 block of Dolores and demanded cash from staff, San Francisco police Sergeant Michael Andraychak told SFBay.
No injuries were reported in Thursday night’s robbery, according to police, though one bar patron was reported injured in Sunday night’s robbery at the same location, when two armed suspects in ski masks made off with about $3,000 in cash before fleeing on foot, a bar employee told SFBay.
Police would not confirm the amount stolen Thursday, though money was taken from both the register and a tip jar, according to Andraychak.
The Bar on Dolores is located at 1600 Dolores Street and was formerly O’Greenberg’s, which closed in 2012 after 36 years as the only bar on Dolores Street.
P0lice are seeking surveillance footage from nearby homes or businesses that may help identify the suspects.
Anyone with information about the incident can contact San Francisco police at (415) 575-4444. Tips can also be sent by text to TIP411, using SFPD at the beginning of the message.
