FEDERAL HEIGHTS, Colo. -- Chris Brown has been named a “person of interest” in an alleged assault outside of a metro-area strip club.

It reportedly happened Monday night outside Platinum 84 in Federal Heights that is known for its scantily clad, gallivanting ladies.

“Right here is where they all had done most of the music shooting, had the girls on stage dancing,” said Scott Richter, head of operations for Platinum 84.

On Monday, Platinum 84 played host to rappers French Montana, Fetty Wap and Chris Brown as they shot a music video.

“Totally not what you would expect. I mean just great people,” Richter said.

“I’ve never seen the club that packed,” said a dancer at the club who made an appearance in the video but doesn’t want to be named.

She and several other female fans were also invited onto Brown’s tour bus when the video shoot wrapped.

“The bus was parked right here on the street,” Richter said.

“Chris Brown wasn’t on the bus when we got on so we were all on our phones,” the witness said.

In a surveillance video obtained by TMZ, Brown is seen getting on the bus, the witness said. He asked everyone to hand over their phones and all but one woman agreed.

“So he like very nicely took it out of her hand and like turned around to give it to his bodyguard or whatever and she jumped on his back,” the witness said. “She put her arms over his shoulders and like reached in front of his chest to try and grab her phone while he was handing it to his bodyguard."

The woman told police she was forcibly thrown off the bus. Her cellphone was broken in the melee.

“The girl got off the bus and got her stuff and I think you see one of the Nuggets players walk her shoes across the street and left them there. He was on the bus with them,” Richter said of the surveillance video.

The dancer said Brown didn’t touch the woman that it was his bodyguard who picked her up and set her down outside the bus.

“We couldn’t see the door of the bus on our cameras,” Richter said.

From the club's cameras, the woman can be seen running across the street then back to the bus several times.

“She was like my purse is on the bus like flipping on trying to run back on.  Like literally trying to run and ram into the bodyguard trying to get on,” the witness said.

“She didn’t follow the directions.  It was their tour bus and she was a guest in their house,” Richter said.

Federal Heights police said they are reinterviewing several people who were on the bus, including the woman who filed the report. A decision on whether to hand the third-degree assault case to prosecutors is expected to be made Monday.

The alleged victim has not been named and could not be reached for comment.
