Suit filed vs hotel chains in Mesa over alleged rapes
Civil complaints filed in Maricopa County Superior Court stem from police reports in which two women claim the night-shift clerk used a master key to enter their rooms and rape them.
Mesa police in December recommended filing sexual assault charges against the 40-year-old man. However, investigators didn't arrest him at the time for either alleged assault, citing a lack of probable cause.
The Arizona Republic reports reports the man was convicted in 1996 of aggravated criminal sexual assault.
He was a clerk trainee at Best Western Superstition Springs Inn in 2011 and at Marriott Fairfield Inn & Suites in 2012 when the alleged attacks occurred.
