NEW YORK — Three tourists from Texas now face multiple charges for attacking a hostess over vaccine proof at an Upper West Side restaurant last month.
The three women, Kaeita Nkeenge Rankin, 44, Tyonnie Keshay Rankin, 21, and Sally Rechelle Lewis, 49, appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday.
They were charged with multiple counts of assault and harassment.
It comes nearly a month after the women visited Carmine's and were asked for proof of vaccination before entering.
Police say that led to the three women beating up the hostess.
The women claim they were racially profiled.
The defendants are scheduled to be back in court on November 18.
