Waiter at Birmingham balti house bombarded customer with indecent texts
by Anuji Varma, Birmingham Mail
“I thought I’d heard from the last of him but he sent me another text at around 1pm the next day.”
Asiya went to the restaurant with husband Ryan, a teaching assistant, to complain. But she said she failed to receive any apology for the waiter’s behaviour.
“I felt so degraded by what had happened and thought it would be handled properly by Akbar’s. But they were very unsympathetic towards me and just said head office would contact me.”
A spokeswoman from the restaurant confirmed that an employee had been suspended after they had been made aware of an “incident”.
She added: “We have never had an issue like this before and we will take the appropriate action. All our staff are extremely responsible and treat calls in confidence. This is not the way we work.”
A West Midlands Police spokesman added: “Officers are currently investigating a report of harassment. An enquiry was launched after a member of the public contacted the police following images sent to her mobile phone.”
The Mail called the number the texts were sent from but the man who answered refused to accept any lewd messages were sent by him.
