An Egyptian businessman and former banker was arrested in New York on charges of sexual abuse of a hotel maid, police said.
Here's the report in the New York Daily News. Once you get past the atrociously written lead paragraph, it says that "Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar, 74, former head of the Bank of Alexandria and now chairman of a leading Middle Eastern salt company, is accused of locking the 44-year-old hotel employee inside his $900-a-night room at the Pierre on E. 61st St. off Fifth Ave. on Sunday." Sexual assault charges were filed.
Two weeks ago, the French presidential candidate and former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was arrested on charges of sexually abusing a maid in another swanky Manhattan hotel, the Sofitel.
