More alleged victims come forward after arrest in Opera nightclub assault

ATLANTA — More victims have come forward after a man accused of sexually assaulting a woman at a popular Atlanta nightclub was arrested.

The alleged assault happened at the Opera nightclub on Jan. 19. The victim streamed the attack on Facebook Live.

Police arrested Dominique Williams after he turned himself in on Jan. 31. He’s facing a felony sexual assault charge for the incident on Crescent Avenue in Midtown.

Channel 2 Action News reporter Rikki Klaus sat down with another woman, who asked to remain anonymous. She said she was out on a date with the same man in September.

“I couldn’t believe it. I cried for her," she said about the video of the assault at Opera.


She said she originally met Williams on social media. She said during their date, they had a great time, talked and drank mildly. But then she didn't feel like herself.

“I felt woozy. I knew I wouldn’t be able to drive in the state that I was in," she said.

She said she later woke up in his bed and felt something was terribly wrong. She said the alleged victim in the latest case tried to console her as she shared her story.

“She was more like on the positive side, like, 'It’s OK.' We’re going to get through this,' or whatever.”

Advocates rallied for justice outside the Opera nightclub last week. Police said Williams turned himself in Tuesday. He’s facing a felony sexual assault charge.

Williams is being held without bond.

The other accuser told Klaus she's cooperating with police. So far, Williams has not been charged in her case.
