Deputies said a man at Walt Disney World’s Typhoon Lagoon molested several girls at the water park.
Robert Chester Double, 51, of New York, faces charges of lewd and lascivious molestation after he pulled the bikini top off a 15-year-old girl and touched her chest on July 3, the sheriff’s report shows.Â Double was booked into the Orange County Jail and is being held on a $5,000 bond.
The victim told deputies that Double crashed into her several times in the wave pool and touched parts of her body. She complained to her father, who advised security. A sheriff’s sergeant watched on a security monitor as Double tried touching other young female guests in the same way.
Investigators said five park employees, who were interviewed after Double’s arrest, had witnessed the suspect attempting to remove the bikini tops off other girls. The report does not clarify if Disney employees immediately alerted park officials or security after witnessing the alleged crimes.
The Disney spokeswoman did not immediately return calls to the Orlando Sentinel.
The Typhoon Lagoon incident is the third sexual-related case involving a young victim at an Orlando water park in less than a month. A man raped a 14-year-old girl at Wet ‘n Wild, off International Drive, on June 21. Orlando police have not made an arrest in that case.
Orange County sheriff’s deputies on June 27 arrested Joshua Fuentes, 23, of Kissimmee, on charges of molestation. Investigators are accusing Fuentes of inappropriately touching three girls, ages 12, 13 and 14 at SeaWorld’s Aquatica.
Fuentes bonded out of jail after paying $5,300 in bail, records show.
