The facts of the case were front page news.  The news reported that a woman sustained facial injuries inside the women’s bathroom at Skarr Hookah Lounge Bar.  The reported allegation was that the complaining witness told police she was assaulted by the defendant. The complaining witness stated she was pushed into the bathroom by the defendant who hit her in the face multiple times and knocked out some of her teeth.
