ROSARITO, Baja California – An American woman tourist accused two private security guards at a Rosarito hotel of sexually abusing her while they accompanied her to her room to get documents. Those accused deny the charges.
The events happened at 4:10AM, although the police complaint was made at 11:30AM, when an American tourist and resident of California, asked for help hours after there was a fight with her husband. The people in charge of security at the hotel called for the municipal police.
When the police arrived, they asked the woman for some identification, but she told them she had that with the remainder of her things in her hotel room. She told them she would would go upstairs for them, and the two private security guards accompanied her. She told the police that when they were in the elevator, the two security guards sexually abused her.
She said she reported the events to the police, but they ignored her complaint, so with the lack of a response, she went to complain to the hotel management. The hotel management called the police, who took the complaint and took the couple to the magistrate.
Additional information from other news articles:
The victim was Melissa A. Townley, from Brick, New Jersey. She claims that once in the elevator on the way up to her room, 1701, the two security guards put their fingers in her vagina and rectum, causing vaginal bleeding. The victim and her husband, Jason H. Townley, went before a Rosarito municipal judge to make their statements. The Townley’s lawyer followed up with a Rosarito magistrate, who reported there is no log entry of their appearance and the judge in question denies any knowledge of the incident. The police report does not even name the two accused security guards.
There appears to be a concerted effort to cover up the entire incident by the ownership of the Rosarito Hotel.
