In an interview KCAL, a former high school coach claimed that Thousand Oaks shooter Ian David Long attacked and sexually groped her 10 years ago, but that she never reported it, instead just kicking him off the track team.
Long is reportedly responsible for a mass shooting at Thousand Oaks bar that left 12 dead, and then turned the gun on himself.
Speaking with local reporters, Dominique Colell recalled the incident that began with a dispute over a cell phone and ended with Long groping her as he grappled with her over the phone.
“He attacked me. He attacked his high school track coach,” said Colell. “Who does that?”
According to Colell, she found the phone and was attempting to see who owned it, when Long blew up at her.
“Ian came up and started screaming at me that was his phone,” Colelle explained. “He just started grabbing me. He groped my stomach. He groped my butt. I pushed him off me and said after that — ‘you’re off the team.’ “
But Colell says she was encouraged by other coaches and officials at Newbury Park High School to accept his apology and not do anything that would ruin his future in the Marine Corps.
“I should have reported it then,” said Colell.

Trump says he can ‘absolutely’ force governors to reopen churches if he decides to do so
At Tuesday's coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump was pressed on whether he really has the authority to force governors to allow houses of worship to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic. "Can you explain what authority you had in mind when you said that you would do that?" asked a reporter.
The president emphasized that he does have the power — but did not elaborate on how specifically he would do so, and added that he doesn't think he will have to.
"I can absolutely do it if I want to," said Trump. "I don't think I'm going to have to, because it's starting to open up. We need our churches and our synagogues and our mosques. We want them open, churches, synagogues, mosques, and other — we want them open and we want them open as soon as possible."
