Another woman says that Tillmann put his hand down her pants at a bar. A third woman claims that he drunkenly propositioned her for sex; after she said no, he allegedly followed her into the bathroom and tried to kiss and touch her.
The Star Tribune spoke with three women in total.
In a statement posted on Twitter late last night (March 25), Tillmann responded to one of the women, saying, "I categorically deny the version of events."
Beyond that, Tillmann said he supported women speaking up against sexual assault, and called the women coming forward with stories about him "brave." He said that he is two years sober and goes to therapy, and is "profoundly and sincerely sorry for the harm that I have caused."
