(July 8, 2015) – In a very disturbing video, a Panera Bread manager in New York is caught punching a female employee.
According to Midgarr, the woman quit her job in the middle of her shift and yelled at the manager. The manager then got physical with the woman, and he threw her down a flight of stairs and out the front door.
The woman then came back into the store, and that’s when the manager punched her.
“You might wanna say she hit him first, but really he had FULL CONTROL over her the entire time, was throwing her around, I think she gets one slap in that was louder than it was painful,” said Midgarr.
Panera Bread released this statement to Gawker:
“Today there were reports of a physical altercation between two associates at our Park Avenue South bakery-cafe. We have a zero tolerance policy for violence and worked swiftly with authorities to investigate. The associates who were determined to be involved no longer work for Panera.”
