A pizza company owner is accused of sending sexually suggestive text messages to several female employees while he worked at his company, according to court documents.
The New York Daily News first reported the allegations on Friday, citing multiple unnamed sources.
The Daily News obtained the court documents from the Manhattan district attorney’s office on Tuesday.
The Daily News also obtained court documents detailing alleged text messages between Pizza Factory owner Aaron Sánchez and a former employee of the pizza maker’s New York City restaurant, The Daily Beast reported.
