Shortly after the incident he fled the bar, but the ship’s security followed him. NYPD said the victim later identified Berry as the person who groped her. Lee Ashley Berry was arrested and charged with forcible touching and sexual abuse. He is currently held at the Manhattan Detention Center on $500 bail and is expected to appear in court on Friday.
