They went there, and after a short time a waiter approached them and told them that they were invited to drink cava from the table. They refused at first, because they had been with Mexicans recently, but the waiter insisted after a while, and finally they went to the table that invited them, which was Elvis's. They didn't even know who the man was, or that he was a footballer let alone famous, although they found out later.
At Elvis' table they met two other girls. When they greeted one of the men standing, the friend said she noticed there was already one “Lackish behavior” when giving her two kisses in greeting, and also when touching her back near her buttocks. “I didn't like the situation and went to the other side of the table, but I didn't say anything to him,” he said. The girl admitted that she was “selfish” and only thought about “getting out” of Elvis's influence so that he would not touch her anymore, and she did not say anything to her other two friends.
After a while, the victim's cousin told her that Elvis had touched her vagina, which confirmed her opinion of Elvis. The truth is that the cousin confirmed this ending and said so They felt “uncomfortable” because of these touches. However, she explained that at other times she felt uncomfortable in a nightclub and never thought the night could end in rape.
At some point during the night, the player went to a door that he did not know was a toilet, and the three girls stayed with Elvis' friend. The cousin explained that the complainant told her about this Elvis insisted on going to a place she didn't know what it wasBut he had no desire to go there and was giving him extensions.

He knew immediately “what happened.” She met the other two girls in the wardrobe and he was the friend.”Sadness as ever“He hurt me a lot, he hurt me a lot, he came inside,” the complainant insisted. She was tense and the three were crying because they didn’t know how to react at that moment. “It’s like she wasn’t there; His body was as if it had been run over“, he added. The cousin explained that the victim was “in a vicious circle.”

The friend also did not recall telling the police who attended her friend at the disco that they had kissed before or that the complainant admitted that she “knew where she was going and what she was doing.”
At around five o'clock the same morning, the footballer's friend wrote to the victim's cousin, giving her his address and telling her if she needed anything. She wanted to respond with “sympathy” to see if the player friend would apologize or confess something to him and shortly after she deleted the contact.
In the following days, the girl who was allegedly assaulted still did not want to report the incident to the police, nor to tell anyone, but her friend convinced her and accompanied her to the police station.

The defense asked him if he remembered the nightclub doorman telling them: “I don't know why you go with these people, if you already know how they are.” She also did not remember saying to her friend: “They will believe you the way things are.”
The two waiters who served Elvis' reservations that night also testified. They both explained that they had brought a large bottle of cava to the footballer's table, that they had sent the girls to the area and that they had not seen anything strange.
One of the doormen explained that when he saw the girls leaving the room sad, he wanted to know what happened to them, but the victim did not want to talk much. He activated the Anti-Sexual Violence Protocol. He said he didn't know Elvis was in the room.
