Boxing watch party leaves Applebee's worker with 200 stitches

THE BRONX - A boxing watch party turned violent in Belmont Sunday, leaving four men behind bars and an Applebee's worker with 200 stitches.

According to police, six men allegedly refused to pay a cover fee and were asked to leave the Fordham Plaza restaurant by an employee, who was later slashed in the face by the group.

Authorities say they are still searching for two suspects, but the four others, including 16-year-old Messiah Runcie, have been charged with felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon.
