An off-duty San Francisco police officer was arrested Wednesday night on suspicion of robbing a San Mateo Rite Aid, police told SFGATE.

KTVU reported that Sgt. Davin Cole allegedly ran away from officers before being arrested.

Cole faces charges of robbery in the second degree and resisting arrest at the Rite Aid at 666 Concar Drive at about 6 p.m., the San Mateo Police Department said.

“The information is very limited as to what we can share,” San Mateo police spokesperson Alison Gilmore said. “We don’t want to do anything that will compromise the ongoing investigative process.”

Cole was booked in a San Mateo County jail Nov. 3 and is no longer in custody after posting bond Nov. 4, the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office’s corrections division told SFGATE.

The San Francisco Police Department said Cole joined the department on Jan. 24, 1994. Cole most recently worked for the field operations bureau and on Nov. 4, he was put on unpaid leave pending an internal investigation, SFPD said.
