(Scroll down for video) A married man was arrested at Disney World, after he was accused of raping an employee at the park.
Deputies have arrested the 49-year-old father, who also works at Disney World.
Gideon Hunte of Kissimmee, Florida, was accused of kidnapping and sexually abusing his female colleague. Deputies said that the attack occurred around 6:30 p.m., while they were both working at Epcot.
According to the arrest report, the victim told officers that she was at work when Hunte forced her into a custodial closet and sexually assaulted her.
Deputies said that the woman only knew Hunte from seeing him in the hallway at work, and the two had no prior relationship.
The victim said that she never stopped fighting during the attack, which lasted for about 4 minutes. She said that the suspect only let her go because she refused his demands to lower her voice.
The victim immediately notified her supervisor, who called the police. When officers arrived, they arrested Hunte.
A spokesperson for Walt Disney World, confirmed that Hunte was placed on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
“We have zero tolerance for this type of alleged behavior,” the spokesperson said.
