MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – A 23-year-old man reported to police that he was struck in the face repeatedly by a dancer at a Myrtle Beach gentlemen's club early Sunday morning after telling the dancer that she should lose weight, according to a Myrtle Beach Police report.

Police met with the victim on Sunday night, and he told police that while he was at Derriere's Gentlemen's Club on Seaboard Street, a dancer was annoying him because she kept trying to talk to him. In response, he told the dancer that she should "go to the gym and lose weight," the report states. The dancer then reached off the stage and struck the victim four times in the face, and the bouncers dragged him out of the club and were unnecessarily rough with him, he claimed.

The victim told police he was intoxicated during the altercation, and rated his intoxication level as an "11 out of 10." When asked if he could identify the suspect that struck him, he described her as a white female, about 115 to 120 pounds in weight, with long black hair and a "muffin top."

Police observed signs of injury consistent with being struck, and the victim claimed that she was wearing a ring while she hit him.

The victim told police that after taking the night to think about what happened, he decided to contact police and report it. The victim told police he did not want to pursue charges against the dancer; he wanted nothing done other than the report.

A witness told police that he saw the dancer strike the victim in the face, but did not hear what was said. Police attempted to conduct a follow-up at the incident location, but Derriere's was closed.
