Customer expecting happy ending goes berzerk
From the Daily News:
A customer flew into a rage at a Queens spa when he didn’t get a “happy ending“ to his foot massage and attacked two workers with a hammer — before smashing their piggy bank tip jar to pieces, cops said Sunday.
The wild rampage was caught on surveillance video released late Saturday by cops who are asking the public’s help tracking down the brute.
The mayhem began when the creepy customer demanded his money back from a 55-year-old worker at Tao Spa Bodywork on 40th Rd. near Main St. in Flushing around 10:30 p.m. Thursday, cops said.
He had ordered a foot massage and was unhappy his request for a so-called happy ending — an erotic massage — was turned down, according to police sources.
When the worker refused him a refund for the foot massage, he went berserk and pulled out a hammer, dragged her into the 24-hour spa’s front waiting room and punched her in the face, the video shows.
Two other employees tried to come to the woman’s aid, but the man grabbed one of them, a 56-year-old woman, by the throat and pushed her against the wall while brandishing the hammer, the video shows.
The women finally gave the customer $40 to get rid of him, police said. Still unsatisfied, he shattered a yellow piggy bank sitting on the front counter with his hammer, snatched the tip money scattered on the counter and dashed off, cops said.
