SOUTHBURY, Conn. (AP) — Two former employees of a Connecticut-based restaurant chain say in a lawsuit that they were subjected to a pattern of sexual harassment and abuse by a manager.

Gianna Aconfora and Maizzy Douchette allege in the suit filed this week in Hartford Superior Court that the manager of Maggie McFly’s Manchester restaurant made obscene and offensive comments, and physically assaulted them.

Douchette says the manager squeezed her neck while Aconfara said he slapped her face.

They say when they complained to upper management they were fired.

The Southbury-based chain said in a statement that it “vehemently denies the factual allegations” of the two women.

Maggie McFly’s has eight locations; five in Connecticut, two in Virginia and one in New York.
