Woman Groped At Protest Against Trump’s Groping, Police Say

October 24, 2016 5:49 p.m.

A man groped a female protestor at an event meant to highlight Trump’s own inappropriate touching outside of Trump Tower ahead of the third presidential debate.

One woman who attended the “Pussy Power at Trump Tower” protest Wednesday afternoon told police that an unidentified man grabbed her breast at the event, according to a Monday report from DNA Info. A New York Police Department spokesperson confirmed the report to TPM.

The event drew over a hundred people, many bearing hand-drawn signs, to Trump Tower, where the Trump Organization is headquartered and where the GOP nominee lives with his wife and son. Two groups, Pussy Grabs Back and Lady Parts Justice, have been frequent fixtures outside the building for weeks, protesting Trump’s alleged history of inappropriately touching women.

As of Monday, no one had been arrested in connection with the groping incident, police said.
