Bill Cosby Donna Barrett Dottye Gloria Allred

Two new accusers

23 Oct, 2015

Allred introduces a further two women who say they were assaulted by Cosby. The first, known only as Dottye, said she was working as a actress in 1984 when she sent Cosby her headshot and was invited to audition privately at his New York City brownstone. When she declined a welcoming drink, she says he insisted, saying one drink wouldn’t cause any harm. After taking a few sips, Cosby suggested they do an exercise and spun her around. She immediately felt dizzy, sick, disoriented, and vomited on his rug.

Things got foggy thereafter, but I do know he took my clothes off and put them in his washing machine. I don’t remember too much of the shower, or walking back down the steps back to the second floor.

She says Cosby leaned her against a chest in the hall, raised her robe and raped her, continuing the assault in the dining room. She says she could not understand at the time why she could not fight him off. Bartlett, the second accuser, says Cosby grabbed her from behind at a University of Pennsylvania track, saying:

Hey, back that thing up here girl, back it on up!

Barrett said as she struggled to get away, Cosby pulled her to him and she felt his “private parts” against her back. Barrett said she complained to her teammates and officials, but that no one knew what to do. Allred:

We will never stop until the last courageous victim who wishes to come forward and speak her truth has done so. Only then will it be enough.
