Police learned that the black-attack on the employees allegedly started when a woman patron attending the party complained to employees about a photo booth machine that was not working. A manager reportedly told the female she would have to wait.
It was at this time one of the men from the birthday party followed the manager into the kitchen area of the restaurant, threatened to kill him and then suddenly attacked him.
The manager was beaten and struck on the face and head. Other employees intervened to help their manager and were then attacked by a group of other patrons from the birthday party.
