A former student trainer at Penn State is claiming that Nate Parker exposed himself to her after he had been tried for rape.

According to the New York Times, the unnamed woman was told by the university that she should contact law enforcement but decided not to. She also claimed that at the time of the exposure, Parker was facing trial for rape allegations.

She claimed that Parker had been "zeroing in" on her for some time before the incident and that she asked her boyfriend to walk her home because she was nervous about Parker's behavior. She said that she was treating his back during wrestling practice when he told her that he "wanted to show her something," at which point he exposed the top half of his penis.

"I was shaken," the woman recalled. "I was crying."

The claims have prompted investigators to look into the history of Parker's time at Penn State to see if there is a pattern of mishandling allegations like this. However, Parker claims that the allegations are untrue.

"This is the first Mr. Parker has ever heard of this," Parker's lawyer, David Matlof told the Times. "He recognizes the seriousness of the issue, but this claim is completely untrue."
