A NYC bar patron is facing 16 years in prison after being accused of beating a woman and knocking her out in a Manhattan bathroom.

The unidentified woman claims that a 32 year old Morocco born construction worker followed her into the ladies bathroom, back in 2010 after she walked away from him on the dance floor. She says he followed her into the women's bathroom and began beating her, broke her jaw and damaged one of her eye sockets.

She was found lying inside the toilet stall with her clothes pulled down to the floor. The man left the club, but was later arrested after he was identified from surveillance video.
