According to the NYPD, the incident happened around 11:40 p.m. on Saturday night. The 25-year-old victim, whose name is not being released, was inside a single-occupancy unisex bathroom at the historic Christopher Street bar when her attacker asked to enter, claiming he just needed to wash his hands.

After the door was closed and locked, he allegedly forced himself upon the woman, first groping and then sexually assaulted her.
