Police: Teen arrested after panty incident
August 31, 2011
Steamboat Springs — A Texas woman staying at a Steamboat Springs resort with her husband told police she walked into her room Saturday and found a teenage maid fondling himself and playing with her panties.
Steamboat Spring Police Department Capt. Joel Rae said the 17-year-old was immediately fired from the resort and police were contacted. The teen later was arrested on suspicion of first-degree trespassing for breaking into the room. He was later released to his parents.
Rae said police interviewed the teen after the alleged incident took place late Saturday morning. He said the teen told police he had walked into the wrong room by mistake but continued walking around because he was curious. Rae said the teen told police he discovered an open suitcase with a pair of women's panties.
What took place next is still not clear.
Rae said the woman told police she walked into the bedroom and repeatedly asked the teen what he was doing and why he wouldn't turn around.
"The male said he was looking for towels," Rae said.
He said when the teen finally turned around, the woman told police his belt buckle and pants were undone and a pair of her panties had been moved from her suitcase and were on top of her purse on the floor.
