NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police are looking for three masked men who they said robbed a Chelsea restaurant with a machete.
It happened around 9:30 p.m. Friday at the Crema Restaurant on West 17th Street.
As 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported, eight-year veteran Crema employee Carlos Preciado said he had never seen anything like it at the eatery.
An employee said three men walked into the restaurant when one of them pulled out a machete and demanded money in Spanish, police said.
Preciado said the bartender quickly left the bar, and one of the robbers yanked the cash register from the wall before all three fled.
