Embarcadero restaurant robbed by up to 7 men 

A group of up to seven men burst into the Chaya Brasserie restaurant on the Embarcadero early this morning, assaulted the two men closing the books and took money from them and the register.

The takeover robbery happened around 1 a.m. at the posh, French-Japanese fusion restaurant, said police Officer Boaz Mariles.

One of the two employees was taken to the hospital because of the assault, but he is in stable condition and has likely been released, Mariles said.

Police are investigating whether there is any connection to a takeover robbery at French restaurant Chez Maman in Potrero Hill that happened in February, when two men armed with guns robbed patrons and the register.

One of those two suspects was arrested a couple of hours later when police responded to a 7-Eleven robbery in the Ingleside District, but the other suspect is still at large.

Mariles said the suspects of the robbery this morning – which could have been a group of five, six or seven - varied in age and he didn’t have any distinct descriptions.
