Police to investigate ‘adult cabaret’ assault

San Francisco police said today (Thursday, April 12) that they’ll investigate a recent attack that occurred at an “adult cabaret” after a female entertainer declined another woman’s sexual advances.

According to a police summary, officers responded at 9 p.m., Sunday, April 1, to a club on the 500 block of Broadway Street, in the North Beach neighborhood. (Police aren’t disclosing the name of the club.)

The victim told police that after she turned down the advances, “the suspect threw a punch at her and missed.

“Both girls fell to the floor,” police continued in the summary. The suspect got up, grabbed the victim by the hair, and punched her several times in the head, officers reported.

At first, neither the victim nor the suspect wanted to press charges, according to police.

But Sunday, April 8, the victim met with one of the officers who’d initially responded to the club, and told him that the manager “had dissuaded her from making a report.”

Police said that the victim reported “headaches and pain to her face,” and she went to the hospital Monday, April 2. After contacting the club manager and witnesses, an officer completed an incident report.

Officers at Central Station, which oversees the area around the club, weren’t available to answer questions late Thursday.
