Republican Chris Von Keyserling was arrested for sexual assault. The arrest stemmed from an incident that happened on December 8, 2017. Connecticut politician Chris Von Keyserling got into a disagreement with a female in one of the municipal offices. The woman walked away from him and returned to her office. Von Keyserling followed her there claiming he wanted to speak to her co-worker. The co-worker refused to speak to Von Keyserling and left the office. The woman that was in the disagreement with Von Keyserling attempted to leave also. As she passed Von Keyserling he reached between her legs from behind and pinched her.
The woman threatened to hit him if he touched her again. Von Keyserling responded, “It would be your word against mine and nobody will believe you.” The security did capture most of the incident, showing how angry the woman was, but it’s not clear in the video exactly where his hand was.
