The manager of Torero's Mexican Restaurant in downtown Goldsboro was charged Monday with sexual battery for the second time in seven months.
Miguel Angel Gomez Camacho, 55, of 217 Gator Drive, is charged with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery.
A warrant for his arrest, issued Friday, alleges the sexual battery happened last Thursday.
Camacho was served with the warrant taken out against him by the victim of the alleged assault on Monday at 3:12 p.m.
The warrant alleges Camacho committed sexual battery by "grabbing victims (sic) face and forcefully pulling into his face to kiss her (the abrupt contact resulted in her earring cutting her ear)."
The warrant does not specify where the incident took place.
Camacho denied the allegations against him.
"Yeah, but this no happen in Torero's, so don't put nothing from Torero's, OK?" Camacho said when reached Tuesday afternoon on the restaurant's phone.
When pressed for specifics about the allegation, Camacho continued to deny wrongdoing.
"I don't do nothing, OK?" Camacho said. "I don't know what the lady's problem is, you know?"
Camacho then referred further questions to his lawyer and the phone call ended.
He then called back from a different phone number, and claimed he could not hear who was asking him questions during the first phone call to the restaurant's phone, despite the reporter identifying himself to Camacho twice at the start of the first call.
Camacho said he could hear better during the second phone call, and when the reporter identified himself again and asked the same set of questions, he said to contact his lawyer.
His lawyer, Dustin B. Pittman, did not return a request for comment by press time.
Camacho was given a $1,000 unsecured bond on the charge.
He is scheduled to appear in Wayne County District Court on Jan. 1, 2018.
This charge comes as he is awaiting his day in court for another sexual battery charge filed against him earlier this year.
Camacho was also charged in March with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery.
In that case, the warrant taken out against him alleged Camacho committed sexual battery "by kissing his victim and feeling of her breast and grinding his pelvis against her pelvic area."
That warrant said the first alleged incident this year happened March 11, and he was charged March 17.
It did not specify where the alleged incident in March occurred.
Camacho is scheduled to appear in court for that charge on November 3.
Torero's Mexican Restaurant is a franchise, and has other operations in Raleigh, Cary and Durham.
Camacho denied being the owner.
"People say all the time I'm the owner, but I'm the manager," Camacho said.
