Man slams woman's face into parked car outside Ann Arbor club
A woman had her face slammed into a car windshield and one man was taken to the hospital after a brawl outside The Necto early Sunday morning, according to police.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said officers were dispatched to the club, 516 E. Liberty St., at 1:20 a.m. Sunday after receiving word of a 15-person fight. Bush said all the combatants were gone when officers arrived, but a bouncer described a vehicle some of the participants rode away in, and police stopped it a few minutes later at State and William streets.
Bush said the driver of the car was a 28-year-old Ann Arbor man who went to the nightclub with three women. The man told police bouncers outside the bar told him his shirt was too long and violated the dress code, so he walked away and started to tuck it in.
Suddenly, an unknown man punched him in the back of the head, he said. The man turned to get his friends to leave the club, when he saw the women engaged in a fight with two men.
Bush said the two men had approached one of the women and started talking to her. She told them to go away and rejected another advance before insults were exchanged. The woman told police she was punched before one of the men grabbed her head and slammed it into a car’s windshield, Bush said.
Three other women attempted to intervene in the altercation and were all punched in the face, Bush said.
The two men accused of being the attackers left the area and were not found, Bush said. One of the men, who were both black, was wearing a white T-shirt and the other was wearing a blue striped shirt and and had his hair in dreadlocks.
The man who was struck was taken to the University of Michigan Hospital with a laceration above his right eye. The women all refused medical attention.
The man who owns the vehicle parked outside Necto reported his windshield was cracked, a wheel well was dented and the passenger side mirror was torn off.
