Chaudhry continued, revealing that some of the evidence includes video footage of where the alleged assault took place, witness testimony from a driver, “and most importantly, two written statements from the woman recanting these allegations.”
To conclude the statement, Chaudhry added that “the NYPD is required to make an arrest in these situations, and this is the only reason Mr. Majors was arrested. We expect these charges to be dropped soon.”
The 30-year-old woman who was allegedly assaulted has since been treated at a local hospital.
