A stark naked stripper wielding a stiletto heeled shoe attacked the owner of a village pub and his wife after being accused of being drunk on the job, a jury heard yesterday .

Landlady Toni O'Brien was knocked unconscious and her husband David was left with blood pouring from his eye when 'erotic dancer' Holly Jaswal set upon them, Guildford Crown Court was told.

Staff at the Crown pub in the heart of the Surrey stockbroker belt wrestled with the 23-year-old Asian dancer until police arrived to arrest her, it was claimed.

Landlord Mr O'Brien told the jury: 'I nearly lost the sight of an eye. This whole incident cost me my business. It shattered my confidence. It affected my wife the same way.' 

The court heard that during the brawl Jaswal called Mr O'Brien a 'pervert' and a 'paedophile'and shouted at Mrs O'Brien: 'It's no wonder, looking at the state of you, that your husband flirts with other girls.'

Eventually the pub, in Knaphill, near Woking, Surrey, was closed after its licence was revoked following complaints about the way it was being run.

Jaswal, 23, from Brighton, East Sussex, denies two charges of assault causing actual bodily harm.

The court was told the defendant accepted she struck and injured the married couple with the stiletto heel of her shoe on July 8 last year, but insisted she acted in self defence.

Ms Ruby Selva, prosecuting, said: 'Put simply, Ms Jaswal took umbrage at being accused of being drunk.'

She said the O'Briens were informed by a staff member that the defendant had been drinking and was having difficulty putting on her shoes. 'As a result, she danced barefoot,' said Ms Selva.

The court heard that a staff member told the O'Briens that Jaswal was "f***ing hammered'.  As a result, she said, both he and his wife informed her they would tell her agency, Angels, that she would no longer be booked to appear at the pub.

Referring to Mrs O'Brien, the defendant is said to have stormed; 'That bitch can't tell me what to do.'

Ms Selva said: 'Ms Jaswal had taken her clothes off. The defendant used the stiletto heel of her shoe to strike Mr O'Brien. His eye was swollen and bleeding.'

She added: 'Mrs O'Brien was knocked to the floor and left unconscious. She still experiences headaches since the incident.'

She said the defendant was seized by others and held until the police arrived. But jurors heard that Jaswal admitted having a few drinks but denied that it had had any effect on her.

'She said Mrs O'Brien had been racially abusive to her and called her a "wog", Ms Selva said.

The court was told that during her police interview Jaswal said the couple had attacked her and she had lashed out with her shoe to defend herself.

Mr O'Brien, 43, told the court that when confronted about her drinking on the night of the incident, Jaswal had said 'I'm not f***ing drunk.'  He said: 'There was a slight slurring of words. It was said in an aggressive nature.

'I told her I would contact the agency and not have her on the premises any more.'

He said he then felt a searing pain as he was struck in the eye.

'I restrained her because I didn't want to get hit again,' said Mr. O'Brien.

The floor was stained with his blood and his wife's blood, he said. 'Toni was unconscious for up to two minutes,' he continued.

Under cross-examination, Mr O'Brien said: 'Woking Borough Council revoked the licence and the pub has gone out of business.'

The incident involving the dancer was said to have been one of 43 occasions in which police were called to The Crown during the two years that the O'Briens were in charge.

Michael Hillman, defending, told the court that  the pub's closure had followed complaints of noisy music, and acts of rowdiness and criminal damage by punters which had kept the neighbours awake.

'People have been served alcohol there when they were paralytic,' he said.

Mr Hillman added: 'When police called at The Crown, they found you and your wife drunk?' Mr O'Brien replied: 'We were not drunk. But we'd had a few drinks.'

The trial continues.
