Assault trial for Chinese gambler

Yun Xiangcai, a wealthy Chinese gambler, went on trial in Melbourne on charges of assaulting a greeter at the Crown Casino. Prosecturs said Yun grabbed the woman, who was three-months pregnant, by the waist and pulled her inside an elevator after she refused his dinner invitation. He was said to have stared at her breasts and smelled her as he waited for the elevator and then later allegedly touched her chest and told her he would give her A$20,000 ($20,650) to be his girlfriend.  When she again declined, he allegedly put his hand inside her dress to touch her breasts. Yun’s lawyer denied the charges, saying his client was alone with the woman for less than a minute while he was on the way to meet his wife and family for dinner.
