Albany Woman Sues Mike Tyson for $5M After Alleged Rape in Early 90's

ALBANY, N.Y.- Former heavyweight champion, Mike "Kid Dynomite" Tyson, fought and won his first boxing match at Albany's own Empire State Plaza Convention Center. It was a first-round TKO against Hector Mercedes on Mar. 6, 1985.

In an affidavit filed by an anonymous woman on Jan. 5, 2023, Mike Tyson is accused of raping the victim during the early 90's, only a short number of years later, in a limousine outside of Septembers nightclub also in Albany, NY.

“I met Mike Tyson in the early 1990s at a dance club called Septembers,” the affidavit read. “My friend and I were hanging out with him and his limousine driver. Tyson told us about a party and asked us to join him. My friend was going to drop off her car and Tyson said he would pick her up in the limousine.”

The victim alleges Tyson tried to kiss her in the limo, she told him “no” & asked him to stop, but he continued to attack her.

“He then pulled my pants off and violently raped me,” the affidavit reads. “As a result of Tyson’s rape, I suffered and continue to suffer from physical, psychological, and emotional injury.”

Filing of the affidavit for an attack taking place over 20 years ago, was made possible by the passing of New York's Adult Survivors Act in May 2022. The law allows for the creation of a "lookback period" for sexual assault and abuse victims over 18 years to pursue time-barred claims in court.

Mike Tyson is being sued by the victim for $5 million in damages for the alleged attack. Her attorney has filed an affirmation to keep her identity anonymous out of fear of public scrutiny.
