Man arrested for robbing Castro shop

A man was arrested Saturday after he and another man stole alcohol from a store in the Castro.o

Police said that at about 1:30 a.m., two emplyees at the shop, which is in the 3900 block of 18th Street, saw the two suspects take alcohol and leave the store without paying. The workers confronted the suspects, and a fight ensued.

The suspects, described as a 20-year-old Hispanic male and a black male in his 20s, fled northbound on Noe Street. The first suspect was later taken into custody, police said.

Police don’t usually release the names of businesses involved in robberies, but the description of the shop fits the 7-11 at 3998 18th Street. No one answered the phone at the store Wednesday night.

Otilio Tapia, 20, of Oakland, was booked on suspicion of robbery in the incident, according to police. Jail records indicate he has been released from custody, and no information was immediately available on whether prosecutors have formally charged him.
