One woman says she was “too scared to go out” after being repeatedly beaten on New Year’s Eve.
Birmingham Live Yazmin Flowers, from the West Midlands area, reported that she was attacked in the Chinawhite VIP area in Newcastle after refusing to give a man her Snapchat details.
Northumbria Police have confirmed the incident is known and is investigating.
Yazmin, 21, said the man first hit her before attacking her again after she returned to confront him.
She added, “He asked me about my Snapchat and I said no. He looked at me and then slapped my face.
“I burst into tears and went to the bathroom. A friend followed me and I told her what happened.
“My friend went to him to confront him and then it all happened so quickly – he must have hit me in the face at least three times.
“He then hit my girlfriend and got her to smash her cell phone. He really hurt her jaw.
“I go out quite a bit, but now I never want to go out again. It was so inappropriate.”
Yazmin added: “I’m not even from Newcastle. I live in the West Midlands and have never been to Newcastle before.”
She says she had a cut lip, swollen eye, multiple bruises, a cut finger and even had to go to the emergency room after the attack.
She added, “It was horrible. It hurts to eat, it literally kills. He must have knocked me out because I can only remember being hit once, but I have injuries in different parts of my face.
“Before, I was out around the clock. I go out all the time, but I literally haven’t left the house since then. I was really scared and I can’t see myself going to clubs again.”
A spokesman for the Chinawhite group said ChronikLive: “On New Year’s Eve, one of our female guests in our branch in Newcastle was unfortunately caught up in a dispute with another patroness.
