Crime Tip: When hiding out stay away from window ledges

A serial San Francisco bank-robbery suspect – dubbed the “Boring Bandit” for his droll style during some of his holdups — has been arrested after falling out a motel window.

About 4 p.m. Wednesday, police called to investigate an attempted suicide at the motor lodge on the 1700 block of Market Street found Michael Minahen, 45, lying on the pavement, said robbery Inspector Dan Gardner.

Officers determined Minahen had not, in fact, tried to kill himself but had lost his footing and fallen 12 feet to the pavement outside his window accidentally, Gardner said. Gardner said Minahen apparently feared someone was going to steal his cache of drugs and decided he was safer outside the room. Officers recognized him from a wanted bulletin as a suspect being sought in a series of four holdups in the city, Gardner said.
