Credit Suisse director Roman Cambell attacked Shanghai Mong waiter Jose Morales in New York City?  


Roman Cambell is a media and information services director at Credit Suisse in NoMad, Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States. He is a former UBS chief operations officer.

From 2010 to 2013, Cambell studied accounting and finance at the University of Warwick in Coventry, England. He also graduated from Columbia University in New York City.


At 1:52 a.m. on June 4, 2022, Cambell went to Shanghai Mong in Koreatown, Midtown Manhattan with his friends. He was allegedly drunk and he wanted to use the bathroom of the restaurant.

Sunabi Yi‘s parents Tora Yi and Jane Yi own the restaurant. Jose Morales, 28, who speaks little English, has been working there as a waiter since 2016.

When Jane told Cambell the bathroom was only for customers, he allegedly refused to leave and recorded her on his cellphone. When she also recorded him on her cellphone, he tried to take her phone.

Morales tried to push Cambell toward the door. The Credit Suisse director slugged the waiter in the face, which left the latter bleeding from his forehead, Jane told the New York Post.

Cambell told the publication that he was provoked. According to him, his thumb was sprained by Morales.


No one was arrested for the incident. The New York City Police Department acknowledged that Cambell punched Morales but pointed out that the waiter  was neither injured nor hospitalized.

On June 6, 2022, Sunabi took to Instagram to share a surveillance video of the incident. On June 11, 2022, she told Daily Mail, “Everyone in the restaurants doing okay.”

“My mom’s lower back was in pain for a few days because she was pushed by Roman,” Sunabi continued. “She got pushed into some clothes hangers behind our counter. The waiter is okay but his forehead has some bruising after getting punched and his finger has a scab that’s healing up.”
