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

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
