A man was arrested after several suspects fled when police officers found them trying to break into an ATM lying on a San Francisco sidewalk on Wednesday.
Shortly before 4:20 a.m., police responded to a caller's report of a possible burglary near the intersection of 25th Street and San Bruno Avenue in the city's Potrero Hill neighborhood.
Officers arrived within five minutes and saw several people trying to break into the machine on a sidewalk near the intersection.
According to a post on the Citizen platform, suspects had been seen trying to use sledgehammers against the machine before fleeing the area in a black Lexus SUV. The Standard has been unable to verify the information from Citizen with police.
Some of the people got into the vehicle and fled, but officers pursued and detained one man who tried to run away, police said. Investigators were working to determine where the ATM had been taken from.
