He then allegedly proceeded to loosen his pants and turned around and bent over, exposing his bare backside directly in front of Amy and her sister. Later in the evening, while Amy was playing pool with another co-worker, Evan allegedly approached Amy from behind and pulled down her top, exposing her right breast.
She claims she hit Evan over the head with her pool cue because she was frightened and embarrassed. Amy claims she was also intimidated by Evan, because he was sitting across the room, staring at her. Amy complained to her manager the following work day about these incidents, and her employer conducted an investigation into the complaint.
Her allegations were substantiated. Evan was transferred to another work-site, while Mark was reprimanded.
