The claimant cannot be named because he is the victim of sexual assault but the claim alleges the victim now suffers from anxiety, depression, a changed personality and insomnia.

It says he’s struggling with alcoholism, a loss of income, and will continue incurring expenses for counselling and rehabilitation.

The allegations have yet to be proven in court.
