The woman told the court she'd been drinking the night of the alleged assault, first at a friend's house and then at a downtown bar. She said she realized at the bar that she was too drunk to be out.
Outside the bar in downtown St. John's, she said an officer in a police car rolled down the passenger side window and asked if she was okay. She said she told him she was going to get a cab and that he replied he would instead take her home. When they got to her house, she said she couldn't find her keys.
She said she discovered later, however, that they were in her purse. She said the officer checked for another way into her basement apartment and managed to open a window.
