Dancer attacked

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

A WOMAN has re­ported be­ing punched from be­hind by an un­known man in the mid­dle of a Dar­win CBD night­club.

Friends of the woman, who were with her at Mitchell St night­club Mon­soons when the in­ci­dent took place on Thurs­day night, say that the man turned on the group when his dance floor ad­vances were re­jected.

The man grabbed the woman from be­hind at about 4am and knocked her to the ground when she tried to push him away, a friend said. He then al­legedly punched her from be­hind, caus­ing a cut to her ear.

‘‘I just jumped on his legs, I ad­mit that, but it was more just self-de­fence. I was pro­tect­ing her,’’ the friend said. The women and the al­leged of­fender were both kicked out by bounc­ers.

The woman was taken by friends to hos­pi­tal, where they say scans re­vealed she had a cracked rib.
