Geoffrey Enrico Cole, a restaurateur who recently opened Brunch After Dark (BAD) in San Diego, was arrested this week on suspicion of sexually assaulting two acquaintances at his Gaslamp Quarter restaurant, Chefs SD on F Street. The incidents occurred on May 27, 2023.

The San Diego Police Department confirmed Cole’s arrest on charges of sexual battery and indecent exposure. He was booked into county jail and is expected to be arraigned on Monday. The arrest came shortly after a grand opening ceremony for BAD where he was not in custody.

Cole maintained his innocence in a statement posted on his Instagram page. He stated that he was unaware of the allegations and the identities of the alleged victims. He also announced that he would temporarily halt all current business activities in San Diego until further notice.

The investigation into the incidents is ongoing as authorities gather more information regarding the accusations against Cole. Despite his denial of the allegations, the legal process will continue to unfold as the case progresses. The San Diego community is awaiting further developments in this case, as it raises concerns about safety and accountability in local businesses.
