Erin Shaw wrote in a Facebook post that she was allegedly attacked by a customer on November 28. Shaw said that the disgruntled customer was taking issue with several of the updated COVID-19 health guidelines in Alberta

The server said that the woman was asking for drinks after 10 p.m. which is no longer allowed and that her request was turned down. The woman also allegedly got up and walked to the middle of the bar without a mask and proceeded to yell at both staff and other customers before she was finally asked to leave.

At this point, she comes back at me, with the glass in hand and smashes the glass over my face. Erin Shaw

Prior to the glass smashing, Shaw said she and the customer exchanged heated words about the server being racist as the customer and the rest of the folks at her table were Black. 

After Shaw received the glass to the face, she said she did grab the customer and throw her to the ground before a coworker escorted her from the bar. Shaw apparently got 14 stitches on her face. 

The pub confirmed that a server did "get hit by a patron who was not following the Covid rules," in a Facebook post

"I just don’t understand how someone who is just doing their job should be assaulted by another person. There was no need for this to happen," Shaw's post concludes. 

Per CTV News, Edmonton Police has stated that the investigation is ongoing.
