April Price was the second girl Stephen targeted way back in 1983, and she claims that she was sexually assaulted on three separate occasions, which is more than the single instance Stephen admitted to back in 2014.
In a recent interview with DailyMail.com, April shared how when she was 13 years old, she visited her Aunt in Los Angeles, who just so happened to be neighbors with the 7th Heaven actor.
The now-44-year-old mother of one opened up about feeling shocked when Stephen offered to help set up her Atari system, only to expose himself in the process, saying:
“I don’t know at what point he did it, but when he turned around, his pants were completely unfastened. His penis was hanging out and I’m just shocked. He doesn’t make any mention of it. He doesn’t act any differently.
So I decided to play along and didn’t say anything either. I just acted like it was not out, which was weird because it was hanging out of his pants.
Honestly, I was 13 and hadn’t even kissed a boy yet. This was not something I was even remotely prepared for in my life and I shut down. He was acting normal so I was determined to do the same.”
That must have been so frightening!
The two other times Stephen exposed himself occurred when he was naked in the apartment courtyard and when he got completely naked while April was inside his apartment admiring memorabilia from his Hollywood projects.
We’re so sorry for April that she had to endure all of that, but we’re glad she now feels safe enough to share her story.
Hopefully it will encourage other victims of sexual assault to do the same.
