A man with a box cutter robbed a store in San Francisco’s Castro district Tuesday, according to police.

The April 19 incident in the 4000 block of 18th Street started at 10:52 a.m. when the two victims approached the male suspect, who was shoplifting.

The man “produced a box cutter and refused to put back items,” before fleeing, Officer Albie Esparza, a police spokesman, said in a summary. The stolen items were listed as bath products, a grooming kit, batteries, and scissors.

The suspect was described only as a black male aged 35-45. The victims were a 61-year-old man and a 39-year-old woman. Neither was injured.
