Scuffle in NY Koreatown gets director of bank fired

Banking giant Credit Suisse quietly fired one of its directors following a brawl at a restaurant in Koreatown, reports the New York Post.

The altercation caught on security camera happened at Shanghai Mong when a man identified as Roman Cambell allegedly stumbled into the restaurant in the early morning hours of June 4.

The director of the bank’s media and info services reportedly asked to use the bathroom, but owner Jane Yi refused his request saying the restaurant reserves it only for customers.

The man on camera allegedly became angry and began recording the owner on his own cellphone.

Footage from the security camera shows the man trying to grab Yi”s phone, tossing the waiter’s checkbook to the ground and allegedly smacking him across the head.

The altercation left waiter Jose Morales bleeding on his forehead.

‘My parents work 7 days a week and they haven’t taken a vacation in 6 years,” the owner’s daughter posted on Instagram.

‘When the cops came they just talked to the guy and walked away. Our waiter’s forehead was bleeding after the guy hit his head. 

‘He grabbed my mom’s phone to break it and he didn’t get charged for anything,’ she said. 

In an update posted Friday, the daughter said the New York Police Department is now reviewing the case.
