PORTLAND, Maine — Police say a stripper faces a charge of aggravated assault for using her stiletto as a weapon during a scuffle with another stripper. One woman was taken to the hospital Saturday night for treatment of facial injures after being hit several times with high-heel shoe at PT’s Show Club, according to the police report.

During a scuffle, Camile Robenek, 30, of South Portland allegedly pushed 25-year-old Nerlend Previlon of Malden, Mass., to the floor. Police say Previlon got up swinging one of her shoes, hitting Robenek in the head and face. Robenek was taken to Maine Medical Center, where she was treated for facial injuries and released.

The Portland Press Herald says both women face charges, with Robenek issued a summons to appear in court on a charge of simple assault and Previlon charged with aggravated assault, accused of using a weapon in the melee. There’s no telephone listing for either woman in their hometowns.

The police report did not indicate the reason for the fight, which occurred on the main floor of the club, not on stage.
