(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on a charge of battery after allegedly groping girls inside the Disney wave pool, according to police in Florida.
The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said that they have arrested 27-year-old Aman Bhatia of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, after being accused of molesting at least six girls who were having fun at Disney.
Bhatia was charged with two counts of battery, and four counts of lewd and lascivious molestation. He was booked into the Orange County Jail, and was released after posting bail.
According to the police investigation, Bhatia and the girls were in the wave pool on Sunday, when the assault took place. One victim told the police that when the waves rushed into her, she felt the suspect’s hands all over her body.
Another victim said that when she was in the wave pool, Bhatia grabbed her waist from behind. She was able to break free of his grasp, but he grabbed her again.
Four other girls reported similar incidents. Bhatia pinched another girl and left a red mark on her skin. The victims were between 12 and 15 years old.
Bhatia denied the allegations, saying that his glasses broke and could not see clearly, causing him to accidentally touch the girls.
Bhatia also said that everyone was bumping into each other and having fun. Disney banned Bhatia from their parks for life.
