The Tab reports that “the woman, who goes by Gabby, was planning to throw a surprise birthday party for her boyfriend. Later in the evening, between midnight and 1 am, she stepped outside for fresh air. Several men were outside and to Gabby’s knowledge they were Temple students who may have frequented a house on N. Bouvier St.”

When Gannon asked for a cigarette, they began to say obscene things and suggest crude sexual acts to the woman. According to her, the men said that “they’d only give [her] one if [she] sucked their d–ks.”

Gannon said she called them out for their comments and they responded with racist slurs and more harassment. Gannon also stated that she confronted the men at their residence, but nothing came from that.

In the aftermath of the incident, Gannon has filed a report with the Temple University Police.

TUPD has not commented on the alleged incident and has not released any new details about the case.
