    According to the police report obtained by Boston 25 News, Larsen "rubbed up against her and began kissing her neck" and “sat down on her bed, pulled his jeans off and exposed" himself.

    “And having him push up against me and leave marks on my neck from kissing me when I’m saying get out five times,” the victim said.

    The woman gave police a detailed description of Larsen, including the identification tags around his neck and the color of his boxer shorts.

    “I’m not going to let this person hold me down because i was terrified for my life,” she said.

    Larsen is charged with open and gross lewdness and assault and battery. He pleaded not guilty in court.
