Volvo Driver Accused of Armed Robbery

Volvo — the biggest business in Sweden that isn't ABBA or IKEA — has made its name on safety. Following an incident yesterday afternoon, however, San Franciscans are left to wonder: Safety for whom?

A silver 2006 Volvo SUV — license plate 5VXY807 for the eagle-eyed — pulled behind a man loading property into his car at around 2:15 Tuesday afternoon in the 1700 block of Van Ness. The driver hopped out of the Volvo, brandished a handgun, and made off with the hapless man's video camera. The thief then sped away in the silver Volvo.
