sup. my names jake.
bit of background, i was dating my best friend for the most part of a year before i cut him off in december bc he was a nasty piece of work.
he was extremely abusive physically, mentally and emotionally.
it got to the point where we recently had to get the police involved.
i believe i have PTSD or something similar as a result.
he would often sexually harrass me.
so this one time i was over at my friend (ill call them S)‘s house. we were a small friend group, just me, S, my ex ‘C’ and another friend.
because of COVID, we couldnt go inside, so we were sitting in their garden. they live in a flat so their garden is shared with their neighbours, this meant that anyone who lived there could look out of their window and see us.
C was being extremely tactile, hugging me, kissing me, all that jazz. i repeatedly told him to stop, as it was making me uncomfortable for many reasons, primarily that everyone could see us and we‘re in the middle of a pandemic.
he was refusing to stop.
at some point i was sitting with my back against the wall and C ‘topped’ me. it felt extremely sexual, especially because of all the sex related things he had said in the past about me. he started kissing my face and i threw him off me.
i was pretty distressed, and i gave him a brief lecture on listening to people.
he apologised, saying he didnt mean to upset me. before he did it he told me to let him know if i was uncomfortable with anything he did.
so, my question it, was that sexual assault?
