BBC employees arrested after allegedly groping customers


Two employees of the British Bankers Club, a restaurant/bar on El Camino Real in Menlo Park, have been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault after allegedly groping women at the restaurant.

The two men, Moises Rojas of Sunnyvale (26) and Juan Gustavo Robles-Alejo of Redwood City (29), were caught on video surveillance groping two inebriated women at the restaurant on June 15, according to Menlo Park police.

Police are asking anyone who has observed or been a victim of similar incidents at the BBC, or anyone who witnessed this one, to call detective Ed Soares at 799-9459.

Those guys are shady! Even one of the bartenders overcharged me and when I called him on it, he didn't even give me a refund and followed up with a phone call to the manager next day, all he said was sorry.
More BS, not BBC!

We are human, and mistakes do happen. Also many of us lose our keys and our glasses more often than we would like.

Bartenders live off their tips and overcharging customers will almost always costs them their tip. A bartender is more likely to undercharge and hope to enlarge their tip than overcharge and lose a tip.

Customer service issues are always difficult and the answers are more art than science.

Courtesy and indifference are very lacking in the service industry today. In the end if the staff tries hard and is courteous that goes a long way in my book.
