"Jennifer Araoz, now 32, said she met Epstein, 66, as a teenager in New York City in 2001, after a woman approached her outside of her high school and told her about a kind, wealthy man — who Araoz said turned out to be Epstein.
"He raped me, forcefully raped me," Araoz told NBC News in an interview published Wednesday. "I was terrified, and I was telling him to stop. 'Please stop.'"
She added Epstein "knew exactly what he was doing."
Araoz said the first few times she visited Epstein's townhouse on Manhattan's Upper East Side, the two talked — and the woman who she met outside her school, who was not identified, tagged along.
When the woman stopped joining her on visits, Araoz said she and Epstein made their way to the 66-year-old's "favorite room in the house," which featured a massage table and a painting of a naked young woman."
