KWVA had a live interview Tuesday night which included a testimony from a woman who supposedly attended Johnathan Loyd’s March 8 party where University of Oregon men’s basketball players Damyean Dotson, Dominic Artis and Brandon Austin allegedly sexual assaulted a university student.
UO student Kelsy Alston explained during the interview what she witnessed in connection with the March 8 incident.
“Throughout the party, she was migrating, leaning towards these men,” Alston said during the Quack Smack segment on KWVA. “I had spoken to her friends about that interaction. They gave their opinions on how she interacts with men typically and it mirrored what she was doing at this time.”
Alston — who made it clear that she did not know the alleged survivor prior to the party — suggests the night were different than that described in the police report.
“I walk in and see Damyean (Dotson) sitting down on the toilet fully clothed, Brandon Austin standing at the sink fully clothed and (the survivor) was standing with her back to the door fully clothed,” Alston said.
Alston then squeezed herself into the bathroom and attempted to kiss the alleged survivor.
“It was at that time that I, in the party environment, attempted to kiss her and she was not comfortable with that,” Alston said. “I was slightly playful and I think she took it the wrong way. She ran from me (and out of the bathroom), saying, ‘I’m not a lesbian. I don’t want to kiss you. Please don’t kiss me.’”
According to Alston, after asking Alston to stop attempting to kiss her, the survivor walked back into the bathroom and asked that she not be followed.
“This disrupts the evidence that she gave in the police report,” Alston said, “because she says that she was getting dressed as someone entered the bathroom and I entered the bathroom and she was fully dressed and everyone else was fully dressed, and they were in stationary positions in the bathroom. It wasn’t a scramble.
“She also states that she left the bathroom when someone opened the door and Damyean followed her down the hallway and that is not true.”
Alston also commented on the alleged survivor’s intoxication.
“She did not seem intoxicated to any disabling extent,” Alston said. “Furthermore, I don’t know what was being passed around the party, but this was not a party where drinks were supplied, so I don’t know where she would have gotten extremely drunk.”
