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.

Trump defenders argued his latest tweets weren’t really racist — but he just completely undercut their arguments

Donald Trump in coal helmet thumbs up

If you try to defend President Donald Trump, you will always end up having the rug pulled out from underneath you. It's a law of nature.

And yet, so many of the president's allies have failed to learn this simple lesson. So when Trump launched a new attack at progressive Democratic lawmakers that was one of his most obviously racist smears, inevitably, some of his defenders tried to deny the obvious truth.

His screed attacked a group of women who have come to define the left wing of the Democratic caucus, which includes Reps. Ilhan Omar (MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), Rashida Talib (MI), and Ayanna Pressley (MA). Though only Omar is an immigrant (she was a refugee from Somalia as a child), Trump seemed to assume all four women of color weren't born in the United States, and most egregiously, he suggested they should "go back" to other countries:

US President Donald Trump came under fire from Democrats and even some members of his own Republican Party on Monday after launching an extraordinary xenophobic attack on four progressive Democratic congresswomen.

"All they do is complain," Trump told reporters at a White House event featuring products "Made in America."

"These are people that hate our country," he said of the four lawmakers. "If you're not happy here, you can leave."

Trump also accused the four first-term congresswomen -- who are of Hispanic, Arab, Somali and African American origin -- of having "love" for US "enemies like Al-Qaeda."
