Could I sue my boss regarding their inaction when I was sexually assaulted at work?

Question Details: I was recently sexually assaulted at work. When I told my district manager what occurred and she did try to help. I explained how it happened and it was a customer who constantly came in everyday and would assault me. My DM basically said if I wanted to press charges I could. Then she asked when my next day off was. The owner found out the next day and took me to the police to press charges on the customer. I wanted to know, since manager didn't give assistance and it happened while on duty at work, do I have a case? I honestly don't think I feel safe now seeing as she let this go for so long she knew about the assaults for at least a month.
