Looks like DSK isn’t the only old rich perv out here touching on hotel maids! Monday police arrested Mahmoud Abdel-Salam Omar, the 74-year-old former chairman of Egypt’s Bank of Alexandria, for allegedly groping and “gyrating” against a maid in Room 1027 at The Pierre hotel on Fifth Avenue, according to a law enforcement source for the NY Post.
Omar asked the 44-year-old maid to bring tissues to his room around 6pm Sunday then quickly locked the door behind her, according to police. That’s when he allegedly grabbed the woman’s breasts and started kissing her lips and neck. The elderly banker was wearing a bathrobe at the time, but it is still not known if he was naked or clothed under the robe.
“I’m not up here for that,” she told him.
According to the source, Omar then asked the woman for her phone number and she gave a fake one. Once he stepped back the made was able to unlock the door and leave the room. She went directly to a hotel manager to report the incident, but was told she needed to inform her supervisor who was off duty at the time. She reported the attack Monday and police were called around 9:30 am, according to officials.
“Experienced NYPD detectives found the complainant to be credible,” police spokesman Paul Browne said.
Omar, who lives in Alexandria, Egypt and currently serves as the head of El.Mex Salinas, a Middle East-based salt-mining company, was taken into custody at the hotel at East 61st Street near Central Park. He was brought to the 19th Precinct station house and charged with sexual abuse, unlawful imprisonment, forcible touching and harassment.
Workers at the hotel offered opposing views about Omar’s arrest:
“People were saying nice things about [him]. They were saying good things about that man,” said one worker, who asked not to be identified.
But another employee, who also did not want his name printed, was angry that a colleague had allegedly been attacked.
“Maybe we should have our staff trained to deal with that type of person,” he said. “You never know who you are going to run into.”
SMH… We’re “So Appalled”! Actually you know this isht probably happens all the time — especially with Yeezy rapping “Housekeeping/ one time can’t it be a bad beetch sweeping?” Hopefully he will keep off the maids cuz you see where it got Omar and DSK!
