Restaurant business owner arrested for alleged sexual assaults in Gaslamp area

Geoffrey Enrico Cole, the former owner of a Gaslamp Quarter restaurant, was arrested this week on suspicion of sexually assaulting two acquaintances at his downtown business last spring. The incidents occurred on May 27, 2023, at Chefs SD on F Street. 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 legal process will continue to unfold as the case progresses, despite Cole’s denial of the allegations. The investigation into the incidents is ongoing as authorities gather more information regarding the accusations against him.

In a statement posted on his Instagram page, Cole maintained his innocence and 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 San Diego community is awaiting further developments in this case, as it raises concerns about safety and accountability in local businesses.
