Woman Assaulted in Bar After Rejecting Man’s Advances
A 29-year-old nurse was followed into the women’s room and severely beaten in a bathroom stall.
Around 2 a.m. on Thursday morning, a 29-year-old nurse was followed into the bathroom at a bar called Social on 8th Avenue in New York, where she was severely beaten in a bathroom stall by a man who had been trying to dance with her.
The attacker beat the woman until she was unconscious, breaking her eye socket and jaw bone, in addition to other injuries. There is police security footage that shows the man leaving the bar examining his hand, as if it had been injured in the attack. When friends of the woman found her in the bathroom stall, they thought she fell and called 911.
When the woman regained consciousness in the hospital, she explained that she had been beaten by a man who had been coming on to her. Investigators on the case believe the attacker may have also tried to sexually assault her while in the bathroom stall. No arrests have been made yet, but police are hoping they can identify the attacker. (Huffington Post)
