Knife-Wielding Man Steals Beer From Downtown Bar: PD

The strange incident happened at the Chee-Chee Club on Broadway in downtown San Diego

A San Diego man was arrested Wednesday after he flashed two knives at a bar in downtown San Diego and stole a beer from the bartender, police said.

The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) said the bizarre incident started around 4:15 p.m. at the Chee-Chee Club located at 929 Broadway.

Suspect Brian Villa walked into the bar and brandished two knives in front of the bartender. He then ordered the bartender to give him a beer.

Employees called 911 to report the theft. When police officers arrived at the business, the bartender pointed out Villa as the person who robbed her.

The suspect was arrested at the bar and the stolen beer was recovered, police said. No one was harmed.

Villa is facing two counts of first-degree robbery stemming from the alleged beer theft. He was booked into San Diego Central Jail and is scheduled to appear in court Friday.
