A guest staying at a boutique Flatiron hotel was slammed against a sidewalk by the hotel manager after she broke the front door, police said.
The 27-year-old woman, a tourist from Los Angeles who was staying at MAve Hotel on East 27th Street and Madison Avenue, returned at 4 a.m. on Sept. 9 to find the door locked, according to police.
She began kicking it to get someone’s attention, cracking it in the process, according to authorities.
Hearing the commotion, a manager of the hotel, a 37-year-old man, chased after the guest and repeatedly slammed her against the pavement and held her down by putting his arm across her torso, police said.
The woman suffered a cut on her shoulder, according to the NYPD.
Both were arrested by police shortly after. The woman was taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment, officials said. more
