Former U.S. Olympic figure skater Ashley Wagner says she was sexually assaulted by fellow figure skater John Coughlin when she was 17 years old.

Wagner made her claims in a first-person account in USA Today said the incident happened after a party in June 2008.

"It was the middle of the night when I felt him crawl into my bed. I had been sleeping and didn't move because I didn't understand what it meant. I thought he just wanted a place to sleep. But then he started kissing my neck," Wagner wrote. "I pretended to be deep asleep, hoping he would stop. He didn’t. When his hands started to wander, when he started touching me, groping my body, I tried to shift around so that he would think I was waking up and would stop. He didn’t."

Toronto police search for suspect after woman sexually assaulted by man pretending to be ride-share driver

Toronto police search for suspect after woman sexually assaulted by man pretending to be ride-share driver Toronto police are looking for a man wanted for sexual assault after he led a 28-year-old woman to believe he was her ride-share driver. A woman got into a vehicle she thought was her ordered ride on Monday night, police said, and was taken by the driver to a parking lot where he sexually assaulted her. In a Thursday news release, police said the driver also made death threats to her. “A sexual assault is any form of unwanted sexual contact. It includes, but is not limited to, kissing, grabbing, oral sex and penetration,” police said in the release. Officers responded to the incident around 10:30 p.m. near Eglinton Ave. W. and Jane St.

Coughlin was found dead by suicide on Jan. 18 in Kansas City, a day after the U.S. Center for SafeSport suspended him.

The governing body for U.S. Figure Skating requested an investigation into sexual misconduct claims against Coughlin, but SafeSport it would end its probe against because of his death, adding it could not "advance an investigation when no potential threat exists.”

Wagner says her and Coughlin never spoke after the night she was assaulted.

“I didn’t really genuinely process what this was until the start of the #MeToo movement,” Wagner said. “Hearing other women come forward with their stories, it kind of made me reflect on this experience in a completely different manner. I had always felt violated but something within that movement really showed me that I was violated and I did have my safety and comfort taken away from me that night.”

Wagner, 28, won the U.S. figure skating national championship three times and was a bronze medalist at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

She said that coming forward with her story was a difficult choice to make.

“If I’m going to be putting a problem out there into the universe, I want to be able to put a problem out there but also do something about it," Wagner said.

Police seek suspect after DNA link between sex assaults in Toronto, Collingwood.
TORONTO — Two police forces have teamed up to investigate three alleged sexual assaults that have now been linked by DNA evidence. Toronto police say the violent incidents allegedly took place in the city and in Collingwood, Ont., between 2015 and 2019. In the most recent case, police say a man posing as a ride-hailing driver drove a woman to a Toronto parking lot and sexually assaulted her while making death threats. In 2017, police allege the same man dragged a teenage girl into a car in Collingwood and sexually assaulted her. And they say the 2015 incident allegedly saw him sexually assault a woman after pulling her into a laneway in Toronto.
