Other restaurant-goers described the vicious hit as “terrible” and “pretty hard.”
“That was a pretty hard blow. That was a Mike Tyson hit,” a witness claimed.
“The customer didn’t touch him, so he had no right to touch the customer, period, end of story. I just think it’s awful and wish it hadn’t happened. It reflects badly on our entire society.”

Another customer who has lived in the community for 20 years said this behavior was not typical of the neighborhood.
“It’s mild up here, there’s no such thing,” he said. ‘It’s a shame. I feel for the guy who got hit. That is not right.’
Wes New, who moved to the area a few years ago, said he wasn’t completely surprised by the attack despite living in a welcoming and friendly neighborhood.
“The first thought is that there is a lot of tension throughout society and so I’m not exactly surprised in that area, but I’m surprised. An employee should probably hold back their frustration and take the higher road,” he said.
“Unfortunately we just have to be careful and take care of each other and be respectful and try to contain our frustrations and not get so violent.”
