A Spanish newspaper reported that a Disney male crew member was arrested after allegedly sodomized a fellow crew member. The accident allegedly occurred last Thursday, October 14, when a Disney Wonder ship employee assaulted a female crew members on the vessel, Rhapsody, which is being used to house crew members while the Wonder is undergoing repairs in dry dock in Cadiz, Spain.
The arrested crew member is from St. Lucia. According to the newspaper account, he and the other crew member knew one another. They spent the night together. The newspaper (translated) states that the next morning, the man man wanted to have anal sex with the woman.
"The woman, a British national, was strongly opposed to this practice, but, as reported, was forced by her partner."
She reported the incident to the police who appeared at the shipyard and arrested the alleged assailant. The police took him to the police station and then to the police court, where he testified before the judge, who ordered his "admission to prison awaiting trial."
The Spanish newspaper refers to other incidents allegedly involving Disney crew members who are in Cadiz as part of the dry dock / ship modifications. In late September, a crew member of Indian origin, was reportedly arrested "in the vicinity of a shopping center in the capital . . . for indecent exposure with two children." The judge reportedly released him on charges. Earlier this month, the body of a Disney crew member from Poland was reportedly found floating in the water. The article states that "the case is still under a gag order."
