Online Allegations Temporarily Close Three Popular Binghamton Restaurants
Three popular downtown Binghamton restaurants are temporarily closed as allegations swirl about alleged incidents of sexual abuse.
Rarely is there such public reaction to posts on social media but The Colonial, Dos Rios and Stone Fox all abruptly shut down following calls for a boycott posted on an online group page claiming numerous women had been victimized at the establishments that are regularly frequented by university students.
The three restaurants posted reaction on Facebook briefly on Thursday afternoon, December 9, acknowledging they were aware of the rumors and saying the matter is being treated seriously. The restaurants' Facebook posts have been taken down.
Binghamton Police have said they are also aware of the allegations and no arrests have been made.
