FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) – In addition to the five bouncers for the Treasure City Night Club in Florence, another person was arrested Tuesday in connection with an assault in November.

Doris Carolyn Onken, 21, of Darlington, was arrested on December 3 by investigators with the Florence County Sheriff's Office and charged with two counts of assault and battery by mob.

Five bouncers at the Treasure City Night Club in Florence were arrested last month in connection with an assault after the victim entered the club with a fake I.D., officials stated.

The five men - 27-year-old Christopher Brian Driggers, 43-year-old Randy Loraine Jeffords, 19-year-old Joseph Marion Driggers, 25-year-old Adam Robert Stukus, and 24-year-old Cody Benson Locklear - were booked into the Florence County Detention Center after an assault on a victim the entered the club with a fake ID, officials stated.

On November 10, the underage victim entered the club with a fake ID and was taken into a back room by the bouncers, where he was physically assaulted, according to Captain Michael Nunn with the Florence County Sheriff's Office. The victim was allegedly struck with a belt and threatened with a handgun to the back of the head.

The victim was taken to a nearby hospital and treated for sustained injuries after being released from the club, the FCSO news release states.

All five were charged with kidnapping, and assault and battery by mob. After further investigation, police determined there was a second victim, who was threatened with a gun.

All five men now face a second count of kidnapping and assault by mob. Cody Locklear is also facing two counts of pointing and presenting a firearm.

This is not the first time this year bouncers at the Treasure City night club have been investigated for criminal charges. Back in April, several security guards were caught on tape assaulting a victim inside the club. The victim ended up in the hospital, and four men were charged. Cases against Joseph Singleton, Ricardo Sinkler and Christopher Mack, and Jameyal Thomas are still pending.
