Police were called to the Pierre after the maid told security that he groped her when she went to his room.

Omar “wrapped his arms tightly around the informant’s body and while holding the informant, kissed the informant’s neck and lips,” Detective Efrain Curet said in a criminal complaint.

Omar grabbed the maid a second time and groped her, according to the complaint.
