VIDEO: Patron hits bartender with glass in Murray Hill bar


Police are looking for a man who assaulted a female bartender at a bar in Murray Hill.

On Sunday, September 18, at approximately 11:30 p.m., the man in the photo above grabbed the 38-year-old victim by the hair and hit her in the head with a glass. According to police, he committed the heinous act after she refused to serve him alcohol because he failed to pay for a previous round of drinks.

Police have not indicated if he was drunk or not.

The bartender suffered a laceration to her head that required five stitches. She was taken to Flushing Hospital and is in stable condition.

The suspect, however, left the bar in an unknown location.
