Investigators said they responded early Monday to the Boynton Beach apartment of Michael Thomas Schuster, 21, on a report of a disturbance and they arrived to find a woman who told them she had been hired as an escort by Schuster, the Palm Beach Post reported Wednesday.
The woman said Schuster paid her $200 to dance for him in the bedroom, but he took the money back out of her purse when she was finished and said he was not satisfied with her performance.
Police said the victim told them Schuster grabbed her by the hair and arm and pushed her out of his apartment.
Schuster was uncooperative with officers and told several contradicting stories about the incident, police said. He was charged with strong-armed robbery and battery.
