In a high district hotel in Australia, a man decided that the chambermaid was not just there for the cleaning of his high priced room. Matthew Moorhouse, 42, whose family says he was raised in the Outback but that this behavior isn’t what they would expect to hear about him.
Apparently, while cleaning his room he tried to make small talk by asking the victim if she had a boyfriend. She indicated that she did not but became suspicious and asked him why he was asking her such questions. At that point, he became a bit more forward asking her if she thought he was handsome. He decided he would give her a hug and instead pushed her down on the bed.
She was screaming when another employee of the hotel heard the screams and knocked on the door. The maid screamed at her co-worker to come inside. Moorhouse let the maid go and she alerted security. Moorhouse remains locked up, charged with attempted rape, sexual abuse, and unlawful imprisonment. His bail set at $20,000. In situation like this, The Suffolk County Criminal Lawyers Stephen Bilkis and Associates can be extremely helpful.
This particular hotel had been featured in the news recently. The hotel was noted as a place for naked guests and was allowing the guest to let it “all hang out” in front of the well known windows overlooking High Line Park. Moorhouse is no stranger to the limelight as he dated pop star Rhani Kamahl who is the daughter of Australian hit singer Kamhal.
Once personal space is invaded and acts against one’s will occurs, a crime has taken place and the victim may very well suffer long-term effects. In this case, the traumatized woman said all she could think about was his face and what happened.
