(DNAINFO) Gwynne Hogan — A bus tour ticket seller is suing a rival sightseeing company, claiming an employee assaulted him and threatened to cut his throat and kill him, according to a lawsuit filed Tuesday.
Elder Antoine, 49, who worked for an affiliate of City Sightseeing, according to his lawyer, was threatened by an employee of Big Bus Company on multiple occasions, starting in December 2014, according to papers filed in New York Supreme Court.
“I am going to kill you,” “get you” and “cut your throat,” Antoine claims the man threatened him.
The adversary also intercepted potential customers, according to the complaint.
On March 28, in front of 1605 Broadway, his threats turned physical. The man punched Antoine in the face, breaking his nose, according to police and the lawsuit.
Antoine was taken to Roosevelt Hospital for treatment. No arrests were made, police said.
This isn’t the first time rival ticket sellers have resorted to violence.
