FAIRVEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (KMOX) — Charges have now been filed against three Red Lobster customers who attacked a waitress at the Fairview Heights restaurant.
The three women, all from Belleville, are accused of throwing water on a female employee Friday afternoon, and striking her several times with their hands and a menu. The waitress refused treatment by ambulance crews.
The women were detained by restaurant employees before police arrived.
Charged with mob action and aggravated battery in a public place are: 21 year old Sharrell Evans, 22 year old Britley Green and 44 year old Geneen Green. Bail for each suspect was set at $50,000. They remain in custody at the Fairview Heights Police Department until arraignment.
A witness at the restaurant said the women were upset because the waitress was filling their water glasses too often.
In December, at the same Red Lobster in Fairview Heights, another waitress was attacked by four customers. She suffered lacerations. Ania Wilkes of Ferguson faces aggravated battery and mob action charges in that case.
