Women allege sexual assault at Lorain motel

LORAIN — A woman told police that she and her 21-year-old cousin received a text from a man they knew, inviting them to come to Erieview Motel on West Erie Avenue about 10 p.m. Tuesday.

When the two women arrived, they met the man and some of his friends, all of whom had been drinking.

Not long thereafter, one of the women told police she lost her phone and went to the bathroom to look for it. She said she was followed by one of the men who started arguing with her and threw her “into walls” in the bathroom, according to the police report.

When she opened her eyes, her pants were off and the man was on top of her, according to the report. She told police she pushed the man off, got her pants and called her mother to come pick her up. She told police she was bruised from the incident.

While she was in the bathroom, the woman’s cousin told police she remained in the bedroom with one of the other men. The cousin told police she started to leave when the man pushed her onto the bed and got on top of her. She told police she doesn’t remember what happened immediately following that but that when she came to, her sweatpants had been partially cut from her body and the man was standing in front of her with his pants unbuttoned.

Both women told police they left the motel room after the incidents and were picked up by one of their mothers.

The women were driven to the Nord Center, and police are investigating the incident. No arrests have been made yet.
