MANHATTAN, NEW YORK: A 43-year-old actress was allegedly beaten by a gang of 10 to 15 thugs in New York after a bouncer made racist remarks at her.
Jennifer Agostini shared a photo of her bloodied face after the shocking attack at Sky Room bar in Manhattan on Sunday around 3 a.m. which left her with "facial scarring and multiple lacerations." At the time Agostini was celebrating a friend's birthday at the venue and was partying there from Saturday night.
The group she was a part of enjoyed VIP bottle service that raked up a bill amount of $900. After being asked to move from their special area to the non-VIP area, all of them decided to pay their tab and get out of the place. They were already in the lobby of the venue when one group member remember that the club still had the card on which a $350 fee was held.
However, when they attempted to go back, a 6 feet 2 inches African-American bouncer pushed one of the women in the group. "It was just this stampede as we were leaving. We just got rushed and assaulted by I can’t tell you how many people," Agostini told The New York Post.
According to court documents which ordered the venue to hold the surveillance footage from the assault, swimsuit model Perendinellys Garcia, 46, was "beaten about her face, body and limbs" and she received "several scalp lacerations."
Garcia's husband, Cal Stuart, says he tried to prevent the women from getting attacked but "gang members" who were the bouncer's friends beat him to the ground when he tried to intervene.
He told the Post that he sustained a black eye in the fight and had been "having a lot of headaches" since the incident. "My whole entire body hurts," he said. "They were punching and kicking me on my body."
At some point, Agostini was also badly assaulted by the men. The 'Brooklyn Ties' star said that she might have to undergo surgery to restore her face.
"I was pushed on to the ground and eight individuals jumped on top of me and brutally assaulted me," Agostini said. "I have five stitches in my head. My whole eye is closed. I am going to have numerous scars on my face. I’m a lead character on the series in March, and I have to now go to see numerous plastic surgeons, and I also have to go back to the concussion center to MRI my head."
At the time of the incident, the bouncer allegedly called the actress and her friends "white motherf***ers," "dirty white b****es" and yelled "f**k those white b****es and their money."
The group is yet to file a police complaint against the venue.
