Two women in North Carolina have been accused of sexually assaulting a transgender woman at a bar.

WRAL reported that the sexual assault began in the bathroom at Milk Bar, a popular spot in Raleigh.

The assault continued into the bar area, where a bartender told the women to stop, authorities revealed.

“Amber Harrell, 38, and Jessica Fowler, 31, are both charged with second-degree kidnapping and sexual battery in connection with the incident,” according to WRAL.

The report stated that the victim contacted 911 dispatchers the day after the incident, which happened last month. She accused Harrell and Fowler of exposing themselves and touching her in the bathroom. She said the two also assaulted her at the bar.

“One of the girls is still touching all over me. She would not let go. I asked her numerous times. She (bartender) could see I was visibly uncomfortable,” the victim explained to a 911 dispatcher.

Witnesses claimed that it was obvious the victim was being assaulted because she was transgender, WRAL said.

The owner of the Milk Bar, Bunch of Fives Hospitality Co., said in a statement that it was committed to assisting authorities in this investigation.

“Bunch of 5s handles all matters that threaten our patrons in a timely fashion to ensure their safety and ability to enjoy themselves at all of our locations,” the statement noted. “This matter was handled with cooperation and full transparency with the Raleigh Police Department and the detective that was assigned this case. Bunch of 5s and Milk Bar seek to continue to welcome all patrons into a safe environment.”

The two suspects, who have been released on bond, will have to register as sex offenders if found guilty.

“At least there was some civility, we got things done," Biden said, recalling that Eastland had never called him "boy." "We didn't agree on much of anything. We got things done, we got it finished."
