Security guard posted at NYC restaurant after hostess attacked over vaccination proof

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — A security guard will be posted at the popular restaurant Carmine’s on the Upper West Side, according to the owner, after a hostess was attacked by a group of tourists from Texas on Thursday.

The hostess, who was not named, asked three women to show proof of vaccination as they entered the restaurant at Broadway and West 91st Street around 5 p.m., according to authorities.

Officials said a dispute ensued over the validity of the documents and the three women soon began to physically attack the 24-year-old hostess.
