On the day she was molested, She wrote a series of disturbing tweets that got a lot of retweets.
Anyways I was molested in Tallahassee, Florida by a black man this morning at 5:30 on Richview and Park Ave. The man offered to give me a ride to find someplace to sleep and recollect my belongings from a church I refuged to a couple days back to escape unjust living conditions.

READ ALSO: A pastor raped me
in one of the tweets, she wrote “He [the rapists] came disguised as a man of God and ended up picking me up from nearby Saxon Street.
I entered his truck only because I carry anything to defend myself not even a phone (which is currently at the church) and I have poor vision.
I trusted the holy spirit to keep me safe. When we arrived at his house he offered me a shower and I thanked him and shower and he gave me a change of clothes. He exposed himself to me by peeing with the bathroom open obviously knowing I was out of it. I told him about a sexual assault situation that happened…”
she also described a sexual assault by another man who she said, back in March, “tried to force me to give him oral sex and then continued to harrass (sic) me thru text and knocking at my door for days.”
Rest In Peace, Toyin. #JusticeForToyin
