Sexual assaults alleged at Universal and on Disney Cruise Line
Written by Erik Yates
The security is in question not only at Universal Orlando where a woman claims she was sexually assaulted in the Express Line for the Revenge of the Mummy, but also a 13-year-old Canadian Tourist was sexually assaulted aboard the Wonder, part of the Disney Cruise Line.Tweet
In the case of Universal, the woman said that she asked who she thought was a Universal employee about the entrance to the line when she was grabbed and drug down an emergency exit hallway and assaulted. She fought her way from the man and went screaming into the rest of the line.
In the case of Disney, the girl was told to follow someone who she thought was a Disney employee because he wanted "to show her something". When she wouldn't agree, she was threatened to be thrown overboard. The suspect in that case is in custody while the suspect in the Universal case remains at large.
In both cases, a prime example is set about the lack of security and the need to increase watch and awareness. Still with as many people that visit each area on a daily basis, the fact that these have been the only occurances says that where there are crowds, there are bound to be a few bad apples.
