The white Brooklynite dubbed “Cornerstore Caroline” for calling the police on a nine-year-old black boy for brushing past her told reporters it wasn’t the first time a child had “sexually assaulted” her.
“As far as I could tell from the way it felt on my butt, that’s what had happened,” the woman identified by Pix11’s Andrew Ramos as Theresa said.
“It’s not the first time I’ve been grabbed on the ass by a kid,” the woman added.

The woman said she watched the now-viral video taken of her as she called the police on the child when activist Shaun King posted it on his Instagram. She added that she messaged King but hadn’t heard back.
Surveillance camera footage from earlier in the day appears to disprove the woman’s claim that the boy grabbed her butt. A video posted by Justine Miller of Brooklyn’s News12 shows the woman watching the surveillance footage inside the crowded corner store where she alleged the boy assaulted her.

Record plunge in manufacturing for New York region: NY Fed
Manufacturing activity in New York State took a record dive this month and fell into contraction, suddenly reversing recent gains, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York reported Monday.
The surprising drop was another worrying sign for the US manufacturing sector, a day ahead of the start of a Federal Reserve meeting that comes as markets clamor for signs the central bank will cut interest rates soon to preserve economic growth.
Manufacturing has been a weak spot for the American economy this year as global demand slows and President Donald Trump pursues a multi-front trade war with some of America's largest trading partners.
Egypt’s ousted President Mohammed Morsi collapses and dies in court, state TV says
Mohammed Morsi, the former Egyptian president who was ousted by the military in 2013, has died after collapsing in court, state TV said on Monday.
Egypt's public broadcaster said the 67-year-old former president was attending a session in his trial on espionage charges when he blacked out and then died. His body was taken to a hospital, it said.
Morsi, who hailed from Egypt's largest Islamist group, the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, was elected president in 2012 in the country's first free elections following the ouster the year before of longtime leader Hosni Mubarak.
NBC SCOTUS reporter Pete Williams: ‘I don’t know what the Court wins’ in anti-gay Sweetcakes case ‘except time’
NBC News' Pete Williams has won three national news Emmy awards. He has a reputation for offering very factual reports with little to no personal opinion. Williams for decades has primarily covered the U.S. Supreme Court and Justice Department.
Monday morning on MSNBC Williams gave his report on the Supreme Court's order in the "Sweetcakes" case, involving an Oregon Christian couple who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. The case is exceptionally more complicated than that – including alleged doxxing of the same-sex couple and the subsequent death threats they say they received.
