After a second alleged victim of sexual assault at the hands of Yoochun came forward yesterday, some fans of his questioned why it took her six months to come forward. Well, apart from the usual reasons, it turns out that she actually did report it immediately.
YTN discovered proof that “A” had actually reported the sexual assault to the police four hours after their encounter in December. She reported it to the police (112) after calling a helpline around 3:20 a.m. Following her initial call, the Yeoksam District Police called her back around 4:40 a.m. The police sent officers to confirm sexual assault. However, “A” decided to withdraw her statement. A police source revealed that they got the report and her testimony. They suggested an investigation but “A” canceled her report.
As mentioned when she decided to come forward, she said it took six months to reveal the identity of the man she was accusing because she was fearful.
“A” said she was afraid of a legal battle with a top star which is why she didn’t reveal his name and why she didn’t press any charges. She revealed that she received counseling following the traumatic experience.
Now that a second allegation has emerged, they will be investigating the second case as well.
This doesn’t necessarily change anything in terms of the ultimate result of the case, but it does seemingly end speculation that she was just trying to copycat the initial alleged victim, and it provides her side with a more credible timeline, especially in the eyes of the public.
