A manager at the Rainforest Café at Fisherman's Wharf was held up at gunpoint around 1 a.m. this morning. Bay City News reports that a suspect entered the restaurant and made his way to an upstairs office where, according to police, "With a gun to the employee's head, the suspect instructed the victim to open a safe containing cash." The suspect then tied the 32-year-old manager's hands with some cord, and proceeded to empty the safe.
The suspect also took the guy's cell phone before fleeing.
As KTVU notes, the suspect fled on foot and has not been apprehended. No description of the suspect was given in reports.
The Rainforest Cafe is a national chain that's part of the Landry's corporation, and has been operating on Fisherman's Wharf, complete with fake thunderstorms, animatronics, and people in frog outfits, since 2000, at which point the Chronicle called it "a bit like an acid trip without the comedown."
