Swiss newspaper Blick reports that the super-featherweight had been arrested once before, in a London nightclub after punching a man in the face because he tried to grope her bottom while she was celebrating her 30th birthday. The incident led to her spending several hours in a jail cell in October 2016.

Candles and flowers have ben laid outside the entrance of the restaurant the victim owne, the Des Alpes in Interlaken.

A note pinned to the restaurant’s door saying that it would reopen on November 24th has since been removed. Managers cannot yet say when the restaurant will be open again, and the staff has been placed on furlough.
