Man in custody after College Street robberies

Toronto police investigate a robbery at the Café Diplomatico on College Street on Feb. 22, 2013. CITYNEWS.

Toronto police have one man in custody after two College Street restaurants were robbed on Friday morning.

Officers allege the man broke into Café Diplomatico and the Coffee Culture Café before 4 a.m.

“Somebody threw a brick through our back door,” Café Diplomatico manager Alex Winsor told CityNews.

“He tried to steal cash from the register but fortunately, we don’t keep cash in the register.  He then went through the restaurant and stole a couple of bottles of booze.”

The breaking glass triggered an alarm, which alerted police.

There’s no word yet on charges, or what was stolen from Coffee Culture Café.
