A restaurant on the 2600 block of Telegraph Avenue was burglarized Jan. 1, according to a Nixle alert released Thursday.

Approximately 4:35 p.m., restaurant staff members were in the back of the restaurant washing dishes when a suspect found a way inside the building and stole money from the cash register. Some of the staff members chased the suspect while others called for help. Soon after, UCPD officers, who were in the area, located the suspect a few blocks away and notified Berkeley Police Department.

After further investigation into the incident, the suspect, 39-year-old Oakland resident Stanley McGraw Jr., was arrested on suspicion of burglary, violation of probation and violation of parole.
