(CNN) -- A party-bus driver filed assault charges against Matthew Fox Tuesday afternoon, two days after the "Lost" actor allegedly punched her repeatedly in an incident outside a Cleveland, Ohio, nightclub.

"He got me pretty good," Heather Bormann, 29, told CNN as she described an early Sunday morning fight with Fox.

Representatives for Fox, who is in Cleveland to film a movie, have not responded to repeated CNN calls for comment on the allegations.

Police who investigated the incident Sunday did not arrest Fox and instead let him take a taxi back to his hotel, according to a police report.

The Cleveland prosecutor's office said it was reviewing Bormann's complaint against Fox.

The prosecutor's office did photograph bruises on Bormann's legs and arms that she said she suffered from Fox's blows.

"He was swinging at my legs and, ultimately, my chest and my crotch area," Bormann said in an interview Tuesday.

She suffered a wrist injury when she punched him back, Bormann said.

The fight started when Fox tried to board her bus, which had been rented for a bachelor party that he was not part of, Bormann said.

Fox had one leg in the bus and one leg on the ground when she warned him to step off, which he refused, she said. That's when he started throwing punches at her, she said.

"He reeked of liquor," Bormann said. "You could just smell it coming off of him. He had glassy eyes and a blank stare the whole time."
