WORCESTER, Mass. — Worcester Police said they received tips Thursday that a nightclub bouncer assaulted and robbed a man in the club’s bathroom.
Police said a video of the incident was posted online by another bouncer who was filming the assault as it happened at the Platinum Premier Club located at 241 Southbridge St.
Officers said the video showed the bouncer punching the victim in the face about four times, and taking money from his wallet.
Detectives said the 25-year-old victim was a Worcester resident. Police said the victim told them that the attack happened on May 25. The victim said he didn’t report the incident because he was afraid the bouncers will come after him.
Police said they found that the bouncer, 35-year-old Easton Byfield, of Oxford, filed a report on May 25 stating that the victim assaulted him.
Detectives said they arrested Byfield last Friday and charged him with assault and battery, kidnapping, unarmed robbery and filing a false police report.
