Man tells police he was assaulted outside Pine Club

A customer of The Pine Club claims he was assaulted by a representative of the restaurant outside the Pine Club on Saturday night, according to a Dayton Police report.

The alleged victim of the assault, a 58-year-old man from West Carrollton, told police he and his wife departed the restaurant without eating late Saturday night after sitting at the bar waiting for a table for two hours, then waiting at their table for 45 minutes after ordering their dinners.

The customer said a representative of The Pine Club followed him out of restaurant and confronted him on the sidewalk, the police report said. The customer was pushed and “fell backwards onto the concrete,” injuring his tailbone, left knee and elbow, the police report said.

After waking up sore Sunday morning, the man went to Southview Hospital and was treated for contusions to his tailbone, left elbow and knee. He then filed a police report Sunday and indicated he would like to press charges, the report said.

The case has been assigned to a detective for investigation as a potential misdemeanor assault, the report said.

David Hulme, owner of the Pine Club, said in an email Monday night that he has left messages with Dayton police and is looking into the matter.
