Bouncers attacked me after I said I was ‘too ugly’ to enter the pub


MUM said the bouncers attacked her and robbed her phone after she said she was “too dirty” to enter the pub.

Claire Sidebottom, 39, began painting Bar Rogue’s two-door guard at Piccadilly Gardens, Manchester, who blocked her because of her looks.

When the bouncers threatened to report her to her, she grabbed her wallet and forced it into a safety barrier.

During the incident at Manchester City Center, Miss Saidbottom was put in a bundle and slammed the phone before one of the doormen heard a shout: “Grab it and run.”

She has never seen the £ 800 device again since the incident on February 7 last year.

Police investigating the robbery found that one of the janitors had two kubotans – a weapon used in martial arts to keep the force at the pressure points on the body.

At Manchester’s Minshull Street Crown Court, Christopher Cash, 33, of Edgeley, Stockport, pleaded guilty to robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a weapon and Miss Sidebottom was ordered to pay £ 1,000 compensation.

Another janitor died unexpectedly before being charged.

Miss Saidbottom, a full-time mum from Mosley after the case, said: ” I’m happy to have been convicted of this guy, but I don’t think he got anything. He was a janitor and was there to protect people from intimidation, assault and robbery.

” This is my first bar crawl in a while and I’ve been targeted and bullied and hurt as people laugh with him. That evening I set out to keep in mind what was going on around me at the time.

” I can’t move around anymore without feeling that another bouncer will hurt me. This guy took my phone with emotional pictures of my baby, which I will never return. They took away memories from me.

‘Too dirty to leave inside’

Andrew Evans Prosecuting said: ” At that time the defendant was a doorman and Miss Saidbottom was at night and was standing in line to get in.

“She confronted Mr. Cash and his colleague but she recalled that she was denied access because the staff told her she was too drunk and a controversy arose.

“At the time, she remembered that she was too ugly to leave, so she decided to record her behavior on her mobile phone, asked for their names and threatened to send the footage to the headquarters.

” Then she remembers a janitor snatching her phone from her hand but she was able to hold it back. He wondered why he could take it but then remembered one of the males coming to her through the barrier, causing the phone to drop.

“She remembered she fell to the ground and someone at the door said, ‘Hold it up and run.’

Officers seized one Kubotan from Cash’s jacket pocket after his arrest and another when he checked his bag at the police station.

Reducing Cash, who is now a delivery driver, said defense counsel Anna Chestnut: “He is a conscientious gentleman and feels badly what happened to Miss Sidebottom. She says she is not entitled to assault and should not take the phone.

Judge Mr Recorder Daniel Prouse sentenced Cash: “You came to her first and pulled her up. You took the phone upstairs and gave it to someone who went with it.

“It seems to me that the purpose of this is to deprive her of evidence of your conduct. In her relationship you have abused your authority as a door supervisor.

Cash is also ordered to complete 18 months of community order, 120 hours of unpaid work and 15 days of rehabilitation need.
