SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — One person is in custody and another remains at large Wednesday night following a car chase in San Francisco’s Potrero Hill neighborhood, a police spokesman said.

At about 7:30 p.m. in the area of 25th and Connecticut streets, officers attempted to stop a car that matched the description of a vehicle involved in an armed robbery, Officer Gordon Shyy said.
