Female Waitress in Hospital After Vicious Attack by Three Customers Over Butter

Three customers have been arrested after they attacked a waitress at a restaurant in East Patchogue, New York. The incident occurred at ‘George’s Luncheonette’ and began when three rude customers began arguing with a female server. The argument culminated with these same three people viciously assaulting the waitress, leaving her hospitalized with a slew of unspecified injuries.

According to Patch, the customers first became angry when the waitress forgot to bring complimentary bread and butter to their table. The trio in question, 49-year-old Irene Carrasco, 19-year-old Rickardo Cummings, and an unnamed 17-year-old female, have since been arrested by Patchogue police officers and arraigned at Central Islip’s First District Court. Despite being released on $500 bail, the adult pair, Carrasco and Cummings, are now facing a high-level misdemeanor and third-degree assault charges.

After Patch published an initial piece on the horrifying incident, Carrasco disputed the media outlet’s description of events, protesting the negative coverage and sending the following email to give “her side of the story”:

"The argument did not occur over missing butter on bread. The bread had butter on it and I have the pics and video to prove this. The argument took place because the waitress was very disrespectful and was talking to me in front of my family as well as friends very sarcastically. When I spoke to the waitress I was very polite with her."

At this stage, further details remain scarce. It is likely that more information about the incident will be released during the upcoming trial of Carrasco and Cummings.

In an equally disgusting incident, a chef at a South Carolina restaurant has been arrested for dragging his waitress around the kitchen by the hair after he made a mistake preparing a meal. The confronting footage – which was captured at the Red Bowl Asian Bistro in Columbia – shows the male chef pulling and yanking a younger woman around the kitchen by the hair.

When the footage surfaced online, it quickly went viral and local police became involved. Shortly afterward, the chef in the video, revealed to be 68-year-old Jiguang Yang, was arrested by police and charged with third-degree assault and battery.

According to Yahoo News, Mr. Yang’s violence towards his staff began when one of his waitresses, Ms. Christina Surina, told WIS-TV. "I didn't feel like I should take out a child burnt chicken nuggets and fried shrimp. I asked the owner. He was in the kitchen at that time to remake it.”

Unbeknownst to the waitress, this innocuous request triggered a torrent of rage from Mr. Yang, with Ms. Surina saying: "I turned around to start pouring ketchup for the kids' meal and when I was pouring ketchup, he came behind me and snatched my head down and I don't know what happened after that."

After reporting the attack to local police, Ms. Surina was fired by Yang’s establishment. Although Mr. Yang has paid bail, the abusive chef – who is a Chinese citizen – fears that the incident will prompt US immigration authorities to deport him.
