Joy said Tuesday that she has filed a sexual assault complaint against President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager for hitting her twice on her buttocks during a Washington gathering in November.
The former Trump backer plans to meet with detectives in Washington next week about the complaint against Corey Lewandowski.
In a phone interview from Tampa, Florida, Joy said she was initially reluctant to come forward because she was worried about any backlash. But she said she called Washington’s Metropolitan Police Department on Christmas Eve after a friend who witnessed the incident spoke about it publicly, and other friends urged her to come forward.
“I didn’t know him at all,” Joy said about Lewandowski. “I only knew him by reputation. He broke my trust.”
She said she saw him at a gathering at the Trump International Hotel on the day after Thanksgiving and said Lewandowski struck her “extremely hard” even after she told him to stop. She said she felt it was “disgusting and shocking and demeaning.”
