SAN FRANCISCO (BCN) — A cookware store in San Francisco’s Marina District was robbed at gunpoint on Tuesday night, police and an employee at a nearby business said.

The robbery was reported around 7:30 p.m. at a store in the 2000 block of Chestnut Street, police said.

An employee at a nearby store, who asked not to be named, said the robbery happened at the Williams-Sonoma at the corner of Chestnut and Fillmore streets.

A Williams-Sonoma employee referred questions about the incident to a corporate spokesperson who was not immediately available for comment.

Police said a man entered the store, pointed a gun at an employee and demanded cash. Two employees complied, and the man then fled in an unknown direction, police said.

No one was injured in the robbery.

No arrests had been made in the case as of Wednesday afternoon, San Francisco police Officer Albie Esparza said.

    But, how is this possible? Ban Francisco’s gun ban eliminates all gun crimes, doesn’t it? hmmm…..

      That’s right, as long as law-abiding citizens do not have guns, things will get better. Leave it to the police, they can be everywhere at all times.

    Useless article. How about a DESCRIPTION of the perps so we can be looking to capture them?

  4. Big Mike says:

    @JaneQ, if there was a description, would you go out looking for them?

    Williams-Sonoma is a not a cash business. People don’t pay for a $250 frying pan with cash — they use a credit card, as do most customers who shop there. If this brain-dead fool stopped to think about that, he might have picked a better target. He likely got $100 in cash, which I suppose is a lot of money for this gun-toting crack-head loser. Go away you fool. You are not welcome in the Marina.
