A Democratic lawmaker who represents the San Fernando Valley was accused Monday of sexually harassing two women, including one who says she was forced into a bathroom during a party last year to watch him pleasure himself in front of her.

Assemblyman Matt Dababneh, 36, strongly denied the allegations made by Pamela Lopez at a news conference Monday, saying, “I affirmatively deny that this event ever happened — at any time.”

In a complaint letter filed with the Assembly Rules Committee, Lopez, a Sacramento lobbyist, said the alleged incident took place in January 2016 at a friend’s wedding celebration at a Las Vegas hotel.

According to Lopez, she was cornered in a bathroom as Dababneh “stood blocking the door and began to masturbate and move toward me, urging me to touch him.”

“When I went to the bathroom after being at the party for a few hours, I felt the weight of a body push me into the restroom,” she wrote. “I heard the door slam behind us. When I turned around, I saw Matt Dababneh. He stood blocking the door and began to masturbate and move toward me, urging me to touch him.

“It was a terrifying experience,” she wrote. “During the time he blocked me in that room, my instincts were focused on escaping without any physical contact and in a way that would not cause a scene. Before the ordeal ended, he told me not to tell anyone.”
