SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A suspect has been arrested for allegedly trying to steal watches off of the wrists of two different people in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley neighborhood, police said. San Francisco resident Christopher Lagula, 19, was arrested on Monday.

The San Francisco Police Department said the robbery took place at Lily Street and Laguna Street before 1:24 p.m. on Nov. 5. Officers met with the two victims who said they were followed by their vehicle by two armed suspects.
