She wrote, “As I rested on my side facing the wall, he entered the bed and mounted me from behind with his erect penis. The respondent smelled strongly of alcohol and was naked from the waist down. I tried to push him away but he continued to stimulate himself rubbing his erect penis against my clothed buttocks.”
