Part-Owner of Hooters in Loveland Charged with Sexually Assaulting an Employee

A part-owner of a Hooters restaurant in Loveland has been charged with sexually assaulting a waitress while dining at the establishment. 62-year-old Todd Allen Erdmann is charged with sexual assault, a class 4 felony.

According to an arrest affidavit, Erdmann was a customer at the Thunder Mountain Hooters location on September 19. At approximately 8:30 p.m., he was talking to a waitress and discussing giving her concert tickets. Erdmann and the waitress began exchanging phone numbers when he allegedly pulled her close to him and slapped her buttocks before grabbing her vaginal area.

The affidavit says that she resisted the touching and pulled away from him while telling him to stop. He then allegedly grabbed her by the arm and penetrated her with his finger. According to the affidavit, this incident was caught on video cameras inside the restaurant.

On September 20, the waitress called Erdmann while a police officer listened in on the call. During this phone call, Erdmann allegedly apologized several times and said that he was embarrassed about the incident. He also claimed he was drunk when it happened, according to the affidavit.

Police obtained Erdmann's bar tab from the day of the alleged assault, which showed several hundred dollars spent on food and alcohol, including eight vodka drinks.

The affidavit says that management of the restaurant told police that Erdmann had touched women inappropriately before.

Erdmann was arrested on October 16 and is currently free on a $2,500 bond. He has a court appearance scheduled for December 2 and has been told not to enter Hooters premises at any time for any reason pending the outcome of this investigation.

Legal Recourse For Workplace Sexual Assault & Sexual Harassment Victims

Dan Lipman is a sex abuse victims lawyer who helps victims find justice by filing civil lawsuits against sexual predators and negligent third parties. Dan has some thoughts to share on the legal rights of those who have been sexually harassed or sexually assaulted in the workplace:

No one should be forced to deal with sexual harassment or sexual assault in the workplace, but sadly, this is a common problem. In some situations, supervisors, business owners, and others with authority exploit this authority by sexually assaulting their employees. These sexual predators must be held accountable for their crimes and their victims deserve answers and support.

Victims of sexual assault in the workplace may have grounds for legal recourse in both criminal and civil courts. Reporting the assault to police may result in a criminal investigation and prosecution of the perpetrator. Additionally, there are many situations where the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against their employer.

For example, if the business had been aware of previous reports of inappropriate behavior or sexual misconduct by the perpetrator but failed to act on those reports, the business could potentially be held liable in a lawsuit.
