New York City hostess attacked after asking Texas tourists for proof of vaccination

NEW YORK CITY, NY – A group of visitors in New York City got hostile after a hostess at Carmine’s Italian Restaurant asked them for proof of vaccination before being seated.

“Officers spoke to a 24-year-old female complainant who reported that she got into a dispute with three unknown females after she requested to see their Covid-19 vaccine card,” the NYPD told Fox News on Friday. “The individuals struck her multiple times with closed fists.”

The fight broke out at around 5 p.m. on Thursday.

Kaeita Nkeenge Rankin, 44, and Tyonnie Keshay Rankin, 21, of Humble Texas and Sally Rechelle Lewis, 49, of Houston were charged with assault and released by police.

“It’s a shocking and tragic situation when one of our valued employees is assaulted for doing their job – as required by city policies – and trying to make a living,” the restaurant said in a statement. “Our focus right now is caring for our employee and the rest of our restaurant family. We are a family-style restaurant, and this is the absolute last experience any of our employees should ever endure and any customers witness.”
