In December of last year, I received a call from a man I had never spoken to in my life.
The message was in Chinese, and the man told me he was from Beijing, where he was working as a construction worker.
He said he was a regular at the restaurant, and had come to the United States in 2018 to work.
He was a single father with a young daughter.
He told me to come to his house and he would take me to the restaurant.
I did, and we sat down and had dinner.
I had met him online in August, and he introduced himself as the man who had been the subject of my rape complaint.
He had been working as an electrical engineer at the time, and I had a picture of him on my phone.
We were chatting, laughing, and talking about my experiences working at the construction site.
The two of us sat in silence for the next three hours.
After dinner, the man walked over to the table, grabbed me by my hair and pulled me towards him.
He put his hand over my mouth and forced me to kiss him.
I could tell I was in trouble.
I felt scared and ashamed, and a part of me wanted to leave the restaurant and run away, but I knew I couldn’t.
The man then put his hands over my head and pulled down my pants.
He pushed me down onto the floor, where I was pushed up against a chair and pinned down.
I didn’t have a choice.
The guy then began choking me, pinning my hands behind my back and punching me.
The pressure built and he began slapping me in the face, yelling, “Why are you doing this to me?”
At some point, the person told me, “You are just like me.”
He then proceeded to say that he wanted to rape me and force me to do it.
He also told me that I was worthless and that I needed to die, so I was done.
I was terrified, but was unable to move because of my injuries.
The victim told me later that he didn’t feel safe because he was scared to be alone.
The perpetrator told me I was lucky I had the courage to report it.
I went to the police.
My police report said I had committed a crime against a vulnerable adult, and that the sexual assault had been committed by a man who was “old and feeble.”
The police told me my attacker had been arrested and taken into custody.
I couldn, however, do nothing about it.
As a victim of sexual assault, I could not help but feel helpless.
I knew my attacker was not someone who was going to be prosecuted, and so I didn-t speak up.
I feared that if I spoke out, the police would not be able to stop the perpetrator.
After I reported the assault, police arrested me for “criminal trespass,” a misdemeanor.
I am a black woman, and as such, I am not allowed to speak up about my assault because I am black.
I told my story to the prosecutor and he told me it was my fault.
He stated that I had violated my police officer’s order to not touch my attacker, but he also stated that the victim did not want to press charges because I was scared of retaliation.
I have been afraid for weeks.
When I called the police, I was told I would be arrested for “disobeying an order.”
The woman on the other end of the line told me the person who had raped me was a “good guy,” and that she had “never heard of this guy.”
I told her I did not know what I had done, and she continued, “But if he does it again, I will report him to the city’s sex crimes unit.”
I am afraid that if a person like this was to go back to work in the construction industry, they would be subject to retaliation from their employers.
The police are not allowed by law to do anything about it, and it has happened before.
In March of this year, a construction contractor in the Philippines named Daniel was convicted of rape.
According to the Associated Press, Daniel, who was married and had children, had sex with his girlfriend while he was in the process of constructing a new house.
When he realized he had been raped, he went to work and filed a report with the local police.
Daniel, as a woman, was able to avoid being arrested and charged with rape.
However, if he had reported the rape to the authorities, he would have faced severe repercussions, including dismissal from his job, arrest and prosecution.
This man, Daniel R., was a construction professional who committed a sexual assault against a female employee.
He should not have been allowed to continue to work with the company after he was caught raping an employee.
The victims of sexual violence deserve to have their stories heard, and to be treated as equal human beings.
We can do better.
