Man Accused of Assaulting Woman Outside Bar Said He Was ‘Waiting For This All Night’
A woman in Texas has taken to Twitter to expose a man who allegedly touched her without consent in public after pulling down her outfit as she walked out of a bar with a group of friends last week.
User @aimeiji, who lives in Dallas-Fort Worth, says she has never felt so violated in her life until the incident, which reportedly took place between a local Clutch and Concrete Cowboy after 1 a.m. on Sept. 7.
“Last night I was sexually harassed while walking out of the bar with my friends. It felt so unreal. I never wanted to cry so badly. I never felt so VIOLATED in my life,” she wrote.
Last night I was sexually harassed while walking out of the bar with my friends.
According to @aimeiji, it all started when the “guy,” a random Caucasian man, approached her group of friends as they left a bar. She then felt that his hands were on her buttocks.
“My friends and I were leaving a bar and a guy comes up to us. We continue walking but glance at him. He says, ‘You’re going to hate me for this, but I had to do it,” she recalled. “This man grabbed my waist, pulled down the zipper off my romper all the way down, and grabbed my a**.”

This man grabbed my waist, pulled down the zipper off my romper all the way down, and grabbed my ass.
@aimeiji, shocked at what had just happened, then saw the man smiling. She immediately called him out.
“I was in shock. My friends were shocked. I immediately turned around and this man had a HUGE grin on his face. He was SMILING. Right then and there, I felt so worthless,” she wrote. “I called him out and said, ‘You’re a f***ing sexual harasser what the f*** why did you do that?’”
One of @aimeiji’s friends managed to film the aftermath of the alleged incident. In the video, the man, who was wearing a printed blue shirt, can be heard saying, “I was waiting for this all night.”
“This wasn’t recorded, but I said to him, ‘You’re a f***ing sexual harasser.’ And he responds, ‘Call me what you want but yes I did do it cause I liked it,’” @aimeiji added.
My friend started recording immediately.
Listen to his first line of the video, “I was waiting for this all night.”
The group reportedly brought up the incident to nearby police officers, who then tracked down the man. Police also took @aimeiji’s information and told her that a detective will soon be in contact.
“Being DRUNK is not an EXCUSE to sexually harass somebody. And it definitely is NOT an excuse to be a piece of s***,” @aimeiji wrote.
In a follow-up thread, @aimeiji identified the man as Luke Luechtefeld and included screenshots of his social media accounts. He also appears to live in Dallas.
According to his profiles, Luechtefeld graduated from the University of Arkansas and currently works as an account executive at PLS Logistics Services. He has over 500 connections on LinkedIn and more than 1,000 followers on Instagram.
“Luke committed an act that has left me to feel WORTHLESS, UPSET, AND CONFUSED this whole weekend,” @aimeiji wrote. “I am not okay right now, but I refuse to let him think it was okay to pull down my outfit and touch me without my consent.”
“Luke, why did you smile when you did that to me? Did you think it was a funny joke? Do you think me, a stranger, thought it was funny that you pulled down my zipper and exposed my body like this in public? Why did you do it?” @aimeiji asked openly.
“Did you really think I liked it that you laid your fingers on me? Did you think I was satisfied to hear you say, ‘I’ve been waiting for this all night?’ You don’t know what’s been going on in my head all weekend. You DON’T know how TERRIBLE I have been feeling,” @aimeiji added.
Luechtefeld, who goes by the username @LIL_Luke21 on Twitter, apologized to @aimeiji in a private message. However, he appeared to avoid taking responsibility for his actions.
“Sorry if you think I sexually harassed you. Let me know what I can do to make it up to you because that’s not the kind of person I am,” Luechtefeld wrote.
@aimeiji reiterated that she has spoken to Dallas police, but it’s unclear whether Luechtefeld will be facing charges. She warned others to be careful when spotting Luechtefeld in rave parties.
“I have learned your name and know what kind of person you are throughout your college days as well. Don’t try to deny anything,” she noted.
@aimeiji declined to comment further on the situation while it remains an active investigation.
NextShark also reached out to PLS Logistics Services for comment on the incident involving the man claiming to be an Account Executive at their company. The company replied that they are aware of the incident but can not comment at this time:
“We are taking this complaint very seriously. PLS does not condone harassment or assault of any kind inside or outside of our organization. Per company policy, we are unable to comment on personnel matters or employment status, and will not have further comments at this time.”
We will update the story when more information is available.
Editor’s Note: A previous version of this article’s headline specified “Sexual Assault”. The alleged crime in the story is known as just “Assault and Battery” in Texas, where the alleged crime took place, and we altered the headline at @aimeiji’s request. In California, where NextShark is based, and other states, the alleged crime in the story falls under sexual assault laws, and we and many of our coastal readers recognize it as such.
Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
