VICTIM NUMBER 38
Status/Service/Rank: Civilian/Female
Date/Time of Incident: Saturday, September 7, 1991 7:30 p.m.
Place of Incident: Hallway, Third Floor, Las Vegas Hilton
Victim 38 is a 36-year-old Federal Government employee.
According to the victim, she and a female friend were walking down the third floor hallway of the Hilton on Saturday evening at approximately 7:30 p.m. She knew from attending previous Tailhook Association conventions that the hallway could get "crazy, " but at the time, the hallway did not appear "packed with people," and she felt that everything was "calm."
As she walked down the hallway, she was "suddenly surrounded by men." They started grabbing her on the buttocks and "everywhere else." She started pushing to get to an exit, screaming "leave me alone."
She noted that she "knew the hallway was trouble," and she "should have known better."
