OAKLAND _ Four robbers invaded Milano Restaurant on Grand Avenue
Sunday night, taking cash and valuables at gunpoint from a dozen
patrons and employees.

Investigators said two of the four robbers had guns. There was no
violence, but police said when one patron in his 50s stood up, one of
the robbers walked over and put a pistol to his head, forced him to
sit down and empty his pockets.

The robbers were last seen running east on nearby Elwood Street.

The takeover robbery at Milano, a popular Italian restaurant at
3424 Grand Ave., was the second takeover robbery in Oakland during the weekend and the third in two weeks.
