Staff or management were involved in eight out of 10 recorded crimes at a Black Country lap dancing club – official documents show.
Police want to cut the opening hours of Angels Gentlemen’s Club, just off West Bromwich High Street, following a string of violent assaults.
A report going to Sandwell’s licensing panel next Tuesday shows 80 per cent of the offences have involved people working at the club. The licence is being reviewed on the grounds of crime and disorder.
Police logs show that, between 12 September 2008 and 29 June 2009, there were six incident logs and 10 crime reports there.
The report says: “Of the 10 crimes eight of them have involved either members of staff or management.”
Police want the premises to close at midnight, staff to be trained in the use of the CCTV system and recordings to be kept for 14 days, and people prevented from leaving the club with alcohol.
