Curtis Woodman says lapdancers kidnapped him when he failed to pay them after their refusal to keep their clothes on meant that his club was shut down, a court hears
A club boss has told a court of the moment he was kidnapped by three lapdancers and their manager – with the women wearing ”miniskirts, stilettos and Daisy Duke shorts”.
Curtis Woodman was outside his work premises in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, when the women and two men drove up in two BMWs.
Mr Woodman told jurors at Bristol Crown Court the group ”surrounded him” before bundling him into one of the vehicles and driving off.
It is alleged that Mr Woodman, from Cheltenham, was kidnapped, robbed of £60 cash and his £4,650 Brietling watch, and assaulted during the two-hour incident on September 3, 2012.
Mr Woodman also claims he was forced to transfer £4,800 into the bank account of the lapdancers’ manager, Charlotte Devaney, while in the vehicle.
The women believed he owed them more than £42,000 for work they carried out at his pop-up nightclub during the Cheltenham Festival in March 2012.
