Two women were arrested this week and charged in the sexual assault of a transgender woman at a bar in Raleigh, N.C.
The transgender woman, whose name has not been released, told the police that she had been assaulted on Dec. 9 at Milk Bar, a popular spot downtown. The details of the episode — which included verbal harassment and groping — were relayed in a 911 call she made the next day that was recently made public by the Raleigh Police Department.
The incident led to the arrest of two women, Amber N. Harrell, 38, and Jessica L. Fowler, 31, both of Raleigh, who face charges of second-degree kidnapping and sexual battery.
It began when the transgender woman entered the bathroom to check her hair and makeup, she said on the 911 call, and encountered two women who began taunting her.
They asked if she had a penis, she said. Then one of the women pulled up her shirt, exposed herself and asked, “Do you want to see my boobs?”
“The other girl starts playing with the wig I’m wearing,” the caller said. She said she told them to stop.
They exited the bathroom but one of the women continued to touch her, she said, groping her buttocks and stomach.
A bartender noticed what was happening and “could see I was visibly uncomfortable,” the caller said. “She asked the girl two times to stop.”
She wouldn’t let go.
“It was so uncomfortable because I went through a rape last year,” the caller said, adding that she ended up having a panic attack.
Ms. Harrell was arrested on Monday and released from the Wake County Detention Center the same day on ,000 bail. Ms. Fowler was arrested the next day and released on ,000 bail.
Police records show that Ms. Harrell was also arrested in April in a different case and charged with simple assault.
Neither woman could be reached for comment on Thursday. It was unclear if either of them had retained a lawyer.
Jennifer Heasty, the director of operations for Bunch of Fives, the hospitality company that owns Milk Bar, said the bar had been cooperating with the police.
“It’s a shame that two women can do so much harm to a wonderful person,” Ms. Heasty said. “Once they came out of the restroom and it was made clear of what was happening, we immediately stepped in to stop the situation and make sure she was O.K.”
Nearly half of transgender people surveyed by the National Center for Transgender Equality reported being sexually assaulted at some point in their lives, according to a 2016 report.
“The most common individuals to be harassed or violated in some way are trans women of color,” said Kori Hennessey, office manager at the LGBT Center of Raleigh, which has been in contact with the transgender woman and is providing her with help. The organization is keeping her personal information confidential.
It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly how often transgender people are subjected to violence and harassment. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation calculated that at least 26 transgender people were killed in the United States in 2018.
Such crimes often go unreported, partly because of distrust of law enforcement. And sometimes victims are not identified as transgender in the news media.
In North Carolina, transgender people cannot update their gender on their driver’s license unless they submit proof that they have undergone gender-affirming surgery, which many transgender people can’t afford to do or may not want to do, said Ames Simmons, the policy director at Equality North Carolina, an L.G.B.T. rights advocacy group.
Mr. Simmons said he had heard of other episodes in the state like the one at Milk Bar. Often, he added, transgender people will ask his organization to recommend trusted therapists to help them after they are sexually assaulted or harassed.
Transgender people face considerable barriers when trying to use a public restroom. The National Center for Transgender Equality report found that verbal harassment was the most common problem, with one-eighth of respondents reporting that they had experienced such abuse in a restroom in the past year. Less than 1 percent of the respondents reported being sexually assaulted in a restroom in the past year.
Mr. Simmons cited a North Carolina law passed in March 2016, known as House Bill 2, as having contributed to “an environment of vigilantism.”
The bill restricted restroom access for transgender people. It was repealed in 2017 after a national uproar and boycotts of North Carolina by businesses and sports leagues. But transgender rights groups have called that move a “fake repeal” that didn’t do enough to help protect transgender people.
As a result, the bill helped embolden those “who think it’s O.K. to police people and interrogate trans people about their gender,” Mr. Simmons said.
“I’m a trans person, but I’m white and I identify as a guy and I have a law school education — but I’ve even had incidents where I’ve been policed in restrooms,” he added.B:
