On February 20, 2019 at approximately 9:08AM, the victim boarded the outbound 38 MUNI bus through the rear doors at Geary and 6th Avenue. The victim proceeded to the rear side of the bus and sat down. The victim then placed the violin case under his seat.

At approximately 9:14 AM, a female subject boarded the outbound bus at Geary and 20th Avenue. The subject proceeded to the rear side of the bus and sat down. At approximately 9:19 AM the victim exited the bus without his violin case at Geary and 33rd Avenue. At approximately 9:21 AM, the subject picked up the violin case and exited the bus at Point Lobos/Geary Blvd and 42nd Avenue. The violin is valued at approximately $1,200 and was last seen in the black case.

The violin has not been turned in to SFPD or MUNI Lost and Found, and therefore we are attempting to identify the subject pictured in the attached photos.

Two photos of the suspect, captured from a surveillance camera, accompany this news release. Anyone recognizing the suspect or having information on this incident is asked to call the SFPD 24 hour tip line at (415) 575-4444 or Text a Tip at TIP411 and begin the text message with SFPD, or email [email protected].  You may remain anonymous.
