Man dressed as Santa Claus robs bank during Santacon 

A man in a Santa suit remains at large after he robbed a bank in downtown San Francisco on Saturday during Santacon, a citywide pub crawl in which hundreds of people dress up like Santa Claus.

The suspect was described only as a man in his 40s or 50s standing about 5 feet 11 inches tall and wearing a red and white Santa suit.

He entered a bank in the 400 block of Sutter Street, about one block north of Union Square, shortly after 1 p.m. on Saturday, police said.

The man in the Santa suit handed the teller a note and the teller gave him cash before he fled the bank.

No arrests have been made and anyone with information about the suspect is urged to contact San Francisco police and may do so anonymously by calling (415) 392-2623 or may text a tip to 847411 with "SFPD" in the text field followed by the message.
