A director at a Swiss banking giant has been quietly fired after allegedly assaulting a waiter during a bizarre brawl at a Koreatown restaurant, sources told the Post.
The Shanghai Mong incident happened when Roman Cambell, a head of media and information services at Credit Suisse, whose US headquarters are in NoMad, according to the owner, in the early hours of 4 Jane Yi.
When Yi said the bathroom was for customers only, Cambell reportedly became aggressive, refusing to leave her and recording her on his cellphone, she said.
“I treated him nice, but then he went insane,” she claimed.
Security footage provided to The Post and shared on Instagram appears to show Cambell attempting to take Yi’s phone, allegedly throwing a server’s checkbook on the floor and wrestling with a waiter before throwing him over his head hit and pulled his hair.
The waiter, Jose Morales, is seen pushing Cambell toward the door before Cambell punches him in the face, footage shows. The beating caused his forehead to bleed, Yi said.
The incident also cost the restaurant business, its owners said.
“When you see the video, ten people are walking behind him,” Yi’s husband Tora said. “They’re my friends. They’re my customers, and they all left without ordering. Who wants to walk into a restaurant when something like this happens?”
Cambell was fired from the financial giant after employers saw the Instagram video, a source familiar with the matter said. “
Credit Suisse is aware of the allegations circulating on social media that occurred outside of the property and have nothing to do with Credit Suisse. Credit Suisse maintains and adheres to a policy condemning discrimination, bullying or violence of any kind,” the company said in a statement.
Morales, who has worked at Shanghai Mong for six years and speaks little English, is still reeling from the melee, his bosses said.
“He’s traumatized,” Tora said. “He’s afraid to serve someone who’s been drinking now.”
The NYPD said it is investigating the incident. No arrests were made.
Cambell, a Columbia University graduate who has since removed his Linkedin profile, denied wrongdoing and claimed he was provoked after the waiter sprained his thumb.
