Suspicious bag prompts street closure in Castro
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Concerns about a suspicious bag forced street closures around 18th and Castro Streets for nearly three hours Saturday night until a police bomb squad determined the bag was safe.
Police sealed off the intersection shortly after 10 p.m. when the bag was first noticed near the Bank of America building. People who live in that area were told to stay inside and police stopped all traffic for a square block area.
A police bomb squad determined the bag was safe and the streets reopened again at about 12:45 a.m.
