Dancer charged with assault

A male dancer has been arrested after allegedly taking a woman into the basement of an Etobicoke strip club and sexually assaulting her.

Police believe she might not be the only victim.

The incident occurred at the Foxxes Den, a club in the west wing of the House of Lancaster on the Queensway.

The 31-year-old woman was at the bar with friends Saturday night and the party stayed into the small hours of the next morning.

About 2:30 a.m., a dancer led her into the club’s basement, where he sexually assaulted her, police said. The woman told her friends, who called police.

Bar staff were reluctant to talk about the alleged assault yesterday. A man who identified himself as the manager of the House of Lancaster said the Foxxes Den operates only on weekends.

He confirmed the man charged dances under the name “Dallas.”

Domenic Antonelli, 35, of Toronto, is charged with forcible confinement and sexual assault.

Anyone with information or who might have been assaulted is asked to call police at 416-808-2200 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS.
