Officers who had the intersection of Jones and Market streets under surveillance Friday afternoon arrested two men after witnessing a robbery.
The robbery was seen about 4:20 p.m. and the San Francisco police Tenderloin station said via Twitter:
“Cops swarmed in and took both into custody.”
Taken into custody were Philip Meredith, 27, of Berkeley and Robert Salvador, 24, of San Francisco. Both had prior arrests, police said.
The department’s Gang Task Force is investigating the robbery.
Salvador had previously been arrested as a suspect in a January 2018 shooting incident at Treat Avenue near Cesar Chavez Street, police said.
Meredith had recently been released following a previous robbery arrest, police said.
