A Florida street magician has been charged with a felony after promising to make a woman’s scarf disappear, then going for her bikini bottoms instead.

According to WFLA, 51-year-old Richard Cook decided to perform as a street magician in Clearwater, Florida, for people gathered for the local Sunset festival. But it seems the magician didn’t have many impressive tricks prepared, or at least no tricks that didn’t involve sexual assault.

After Richard Cook asked for a volunteer from the crowd, he was approached by a woman in a bikini. The magician then asked her to keep her hands out in front of her as part of the trick, but this was more likely to ensure that she couldn’t stop him from doing what he did next. He didn’t make the scarf vanish. Instead, Cook simply grabbed at the woman’s bikini bottoms and tried to yank them off her body from the side. Fortunately, she was able to stop the bikini from coming off completely and protected herself from exposure.
