Pittsburgh Police Department arrested a male employee of Milano’s Pizza shop on Saturday night who was caught on video assaulting a woman on Friday night in the restaurant. Mahmut Yimaz, 41, turned himself in to police officers and was charged with one count each of simple assault and aggravated assault, a police statement said.

“It is my sincere hope that these charges are another step in sending a very clear signal that Pittsburgh will not tolerate violence against women and that we will work as a community to protect all women, and notably African-American women, from physical and emotional violence,” Mayor William Peduto said, describing the video as “deeply disturbing.”

The video, posted on Facebook, shows Yimaz telling the victim, Jade Martin, to leave the restaurant. After she ignored his order, Yimaz grabbed Martin at the door and pinned her to the ground. He then pushed her into a few rows of tables and chairs, as he forced her toward a wall and appeared to bang her head on the ground. A few other employees rushed over to end the assault and push Martin out of the restaurant. After seeing the video, a group of angry protesters demonstrated outside the restaurant on Saturday.

Martin went to the hospital after the incident and filed a police report, according to WPXI.com. She had a large bruise on her forehead and may have had a concussion, Martin’s attorney, Todd Hollis, stated. Martin, who was not charged with a crime, has two children and did nothing to deserve the beating, he added. “That man could have murdered my daughter in this restaurant,” Darlene Wall, Martin’s mother, said.

  1. Can you imagine being a white person with all that supposed to mean in spending your time saying this kind of nagative stuff to black people like these whites here do. That’s what a Prejudice mind does for you. Why don’t they go to a psychologist and tell him what they do and say on the web in their spare time to see if he’ll give them another appointment.

    @Mac Daddy In Philly based upon code section 2701 and it’s addendum; depending on which portion of that section applies and any amended portion thereof. You can serve up to 5 years in prison for Simple Assault in Philadelphia. Check the code!! The laws vary in superior and local municipalities across this great land.

    Mac Daddy, U are the stupidest human being on this earth!!!! What didn’t you understand about the article or video. Because she went in to use the bathroom and was going to leave but was talking to people. I do not believe that she was being disruptive. Its just the MAGGETTY ASS MANAGER started all of this just to start something. Now look at his pitiful ass CHARGED WITH ASSAULT. If I was the woman I would pursue it and have him put into prison, go through a trial and everything. The VIDEO is the evidence!! He says that he didn’t know that the woman hit her head. THATS A DAMN LIE!!!! In the video you can see him looking at her every time he slammed her head to the floor. LIARS WILL BE LIARS, right Mac Daddy!!!!

      I understand that the video is not complete and does not show actions prior to the confrontation. I also know that the story, edit by BAW, does not always report all the facts, particularly facts that would prove this woman started shyt. I also know you don’t go to prison for simple assault. Do you understand those truths?

      • Shii that the woman started you say? what do you mean, what would you imagine she started For him to go off on her like that? When no matter what she started it’s up to the police not for people, managers or not to take the law into their own hands.

    She should have tazed his azz, Bitch mofo, You too mr dontknowshit, macfool dont you have some shitty bed pans to clean?

    • Without self-confidence we are as babes in the cradle. And how can we generate this imponderable quality, which is yet so invaluable, most quickly? By thinking that other people are inferior to oneself. Virginia wolf.

  5. Here’s the deal. If that guy did that to me i would have kicked his punk ass btwn his legs. These foreigners need to realize that it’s the white man that want their asses gone. Don’t get it twisted. STAY WOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
