The actor said that while at the house party around 2008, Pearce disappeared for a time with a young Latina and his friend became concerned.
Bauer said that when he and his friend began looking for the missing woman, she stormed out of a room, followed shortly after by Pearce.
“He was trying to get me out of the party so no one else would hear,” Bauer told DailyMail.com. He said, ‘Don’t listen to her. This is a stupid party, let’s get out of here … Get in the car, get in the car. ‘
‘I would say,’ Don’t even joke about it around me. You know I don’t approve of that. I hope you are joking. And he would say, ‘Look at me.’
Bauer said that when he asked what drugs his temporary roommate intended to use on women, Pearce declined to elaborate.
He would say, ‘Forget it.’ I’m not going to tell you. You are likely to go crazy and give me away or something.

The former Scorpions bassist said he once visited Pearce’s apartment to meet Bauer, his close friend, but was instead greeted by Pearce and shown around.
“He had extremely large televisions, which was unusual for an apartment at the time, and a large number of electronic devices, like 3-5 laptops,” Rieckermann said.
‘He suddenly left the room, which by the way, there was porn playing late in the afternoon. He came out and showed me a pile full of girl IDs.
He said ‘these are the IDs that I use to take the girls to the clubs’. I said, ‘Why do you need IDs for girls to go into clubs?’ “Well, a lot of the girls we date are underage.” I said, ‘Why are you dating underage girls?’
“ That was an extremely strange big red flag for me. ”

Rieckermann said he also saw a stack of 50-70 credit cards on Pearce’s desk that were not in his name, which Pearce declined to explain.
Then some girls started showing up and they were very, very young and very insecure. My intuition was that they were definitely underage, ” said the 59-year-old retired rock star.
‘He said that he was going out with them later and was passing all these IDs on to these girls. That’s when I said it’s okay, I’m leaving here. I have to go.’
Rieckerman said he wanted to speak to encourage witnesses to come forward and for police to investigate all possibilities in the Christy and Hilda case.
He said he later found out that Pearce had been ‘blacklisted’ from other house parties after a host allegedly caught him with security cameras stealing a laptop.
