Man Rescues Woman from Bill Cosby in 1984!
Tony Hogue banged on the door of Bill Cosby's New York brownstone home at 243 E.61st. St., in September,1984, in the posh Upper East Side.He was there to save his 23 year old woman, known as Jane Doe #8, in the lawsuit filed around 2004 for rape. Cosby failed to answer for some time , as Tony kicked and banged on the door. What brought Tony to save his friend was her frantic and freaked out phone call to him, pleading for him to get her out. The call was hysterical and the woman was crying yet spoke in whispers, as if trying to be secret. In the call, she said that she was in a room on the second floor and not in her clothes for a long time. She told Tony she was numb and cannot stand up, her vision blurred to some degree. Of course, Tony asked the whereabouts of Cosby. Her answer indicated that Cosby came into the room periodically with a cigar and tried to fondle and kiss her. Cosby (then, 47 yrs. old) tried to force himself on her.
Both Tony and the woman are white. Tony was apprehensive in taking on Cosby, then, a huge black star. Tony thought he might be arrested. Then, suddenly, Cosby opened the door in a very calm manner and said, " What's the problem?".
Tony was a booking agent for JF Images that promoted female models to agencies. He and Cosby became friends and Cosby would often invite him and models to dinner at his place. Cosby seemed to interested in the models who were aspiring actresses and another Jane Doe in lawsuit was another victim. This was Jo Farrell
The dinner event involving Cosby, Tony, and the victim (now 53), ended at 11:30 pm and Cosby told Tony that he and the others should go to a local nightclub, while Cosby and the victim would stay at his place to talk about acting and the movie business. At the dinner, Tony noticed that Cosby gave drinks to all the guests, yet did not have one himself. Tony got the phone call after midnight, the victim had been given a drink called Ouzo and after she had drunk it, started to feel weird and out of control.
After Cosby had opened the front door, Tony indicated that there was something wrong inside. He had just been called by his friend and she was hysterical. Cosby said nothing and without waiting, Tony rushed past Cosby. Cosby's excuse was maybe she had too much to drink and had a reaction.
A reaction to what?
Tony yelled out her name as he climbed the stairs to the second floor, where he discovered her in a wobbly state. Another woman, Jo Farrell, was not seen, but known to be there. Tony tried to ask his friend questions but it was obvious she was drugged and incoherent. The victim, who was engaged to be married, flew back home the next day and her parents had already received a phone call from Cosby by the time she arrived. She returned his call and he conveyed that he did not mean to act offensively or be misunderstood. This was CYA for Cosby's sexual attack.
What was going on then was that Cosby was much more interested in Jo Farrell than the other woman. Tony had noticed this before and said that Cosby was acting like a predator after prey once he met Jo. Cosby focused on her, but, also liked Tony's friend to a lesser degree and probably thought he could have two that night. Cosby's sexual advances only got so far. This victim was lucky, thanks to Tony.
Now, another lawsuit has been filed against Cosby from a plaintiff alleging she was attacked when she was just 15 yrs. old. This case was just filed. Her name is Judy Huth. In this lawsuit, the girl was told to lie about her age, if asked, and Cosby forced her to "jack him off" as he laid on a bed. His attempt to put his hands on her vagina were repulsed. She had been given several beers to drink.
