Authorities say a Walt Disney World employee has been charged with sexually assaulting a single mother he lured to central Florida by offering her free theme-park passes and hotel discounts.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office says 31-year-old reservations clerk Wilbert Brookins was charged Wednesday with sexual battery.
Authorities say the woman was trying to make a reservation several weeks ago when Brookins offered to use his employee discount. Brookins spent the day with the woman and her two children Tuesday at the Magic Kingdom. The woman told investigators that Brookins assaulted her in her hotel room that night after she fell asleep.
Walt Disney Co. spokeswoman Andrea Finger says Brookins has been placed on unpaid leave.
Brookins was being held on $10,000 bail. Jail records did not list an attorney.
