article A woman who was sexually assaulted by an acquaintance in his apartment complex has filed a lawsuit against the man.
The lawsuit, filed Monday in Polk County, Fla., says the woman suffered multiple injuries and lost her right eye and right arm in the attack in May.
It also accuses the man of failing to take adequate steps to protect her and her family.
The woman, identified only as Jane Doe, alleges in the lawsuit that she was sexually abused by another man, identified as Jason B. Smith, at the apartment complex in the 2000s.
She said Smith threatened to kill her and beat her with a metal pole, and that she suffered multiple concussions and other injuries.
The suit also alleges Smith raped her in his bedroom in the past, and repeatedly threatened to harm her if she did not let him into her apartment.
“I am asking for compensation and an apology,” said attorney Mark Davis, who is representing the woman.
“I am not asking for a monetary award.
I am asking him to take care of her.
I think it is appropriate for him to do that.
And that’s what we’re asking him for.”
The lawsuit is the latest legal effort to expose the behavior of a large swath of men in the gay community.
Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear an appeal from a gay man who accused a woman in a New York City bar of sexually assaulting him.
