CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A northeast Ohio man has been hit with hit with sex charges for what happened at a private holiday party in the Warehouse District.

Cleveland police said the group was at a bar before Christmas, and an occurrence turned into an alleged sexual assault when one of the men in attendance forced a woman into the customer bathroom. 

Records show he locked the stall door and molested the woman by putting his hands down her pants. 

The alleged suspect is Irket Veliu.

Cleveland police sex crimes investigators have built a case around the incident.

Veliu has been indicted for gross sexual imposition, kidnapping and more. 

He told our Ed Gallek over the phone that he's being accused of quote "wrong stuff."

Veliu defended himself and said that in short the woman made up a story cause she was with him; yet, she has a boyfriend.
