Disney accused of not acting on child assault

Cruise line criticised for failing to report assault

Disney Cruise Lines is being widely criticised for failing to report a sexual assault on an 11-year-old passenger by one of its employees. The incident occurred on the Disney Dream last August.
Surveillance footage shows a waiter originally from India, aged 33, groping the girl in a lift. The girl reported the attack immediately, taking security to the place where it happened. The suspect was then identified.
Port Canaveral police prepared to board the vessel when it arrived in port, but Disney Cruise Lines had already put the suspect on a plane to India. Police were unable to look into the claim.
