The boy told Cardiff Crown Court that Pike, pictured outside court, that he was scared by the attack and still suffers nightmares due to his ordeal
The boy said: ‘She came through the doors, came over to us, put her arms around me, and squeezed my nipple.
‘She squeezed my nipple about three or four times. After she put her hand on my nipple and straight afterwards I felt her palm run down my right thigh and onto my penis and squeezed it very hard.
‘She said I should go to a barbecue on the weekend because her boyfriend was boring.
‘I said: “I don’t know you” and she said: “It doesn’t matter it’s just a bit of fun”.’
‘She put her hand through my hair and said it was lush and put her hand through my hair four times. She said I might know her daughter and asked how old I was. I said I was 15 and she said she was 36.’
Giving evidence via videolink, the boy said he was ‘very, very scared’.
He said: ‘I felt frightened and to this day I still wake up in the night with nightmares and sweats.’

Prosecutor Nigel Fryer said it was ‘unusual’ for a woman to be charged with a sex assault on a male.
But he said: ‘Sexual offending happens in all aspects of life – there’s no stereotypical sexual offender.
‘Ms Pike is female and the complainant is male and that is unusual because in society many people have a preconceived idea that sexual offending flows one way, male to female, but that’s not how the law works.
‘Sexual assault is not something dependent on gender.’
The boy called his father to tell him what had happened and was told to call the police.
Pike, of Rhoose, Vale of Glamorgan, denies sexual assault in September 2019.
