An exotic dancer is in custody after she allegedly followed a customer to his home and robbed him shortly after he turned down her offer of a lap dance at an East Houston adult club, according to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
Kelly Renee Hutchins, 23, of Pasadena, has been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon in the case, court records show. A judge denied a bond for the suspect, who was being held Thursday in the Harris County Jail.
The victim told police that he visited the strip club on July 31 when he was approached by a dancer who offered him a private lap dance, and he refused, according to a criminal complaint filed Aug. 14 in the case.
Later that night, a man approached the victim and asked him “if he wanted her (the dancer’s) company after he left the club, and again, the (victim) stated he again declined,” the complaint states.
The victim left the club and drove to his southwest Houston home, where he noticed a vehicle drive up with the headlights turned off, police said.
Investigators said a woman approached – the victim recognized her as the dancer he had earlier rejected – and pointed a gun at him, demanding his wallet.
“The (victim) stated that he told the defendant he did not have his wallet, and she searched his pockets and attempted to open his vehicle,” according to the complaint.
When he informed the woman that surveillance cameras were recording her, she drove off with the man who earlier approached the patron inside the club, according to police.
Investigators later contacted the strip club and provided them with a photo from the victim’s surveillance footage. The club management provided police with Hutchins’ California driver’s license photo, and the victim positively identified her in a photo lineup.
Hutchins has a conviction from May 2009 for misdemeanor prostitution, court records show.
