Hotel Guest Arrested For Assaults

By Patrick Sullivan | June 12, 2018

Police were called to the Comfort Inn on Munson Avenue after guests spotted a man fondling a boy at the pool.

Traverse City police responded at 4:36pm Saturday and interviewed the witnesses, who said a guest appeared to be drunk or high and that he’d removed the three-year-old’s swimsuit and fondled his genitals, Chief Jeff O’Brien says.

As the officers were interviewing the witnesses, they heard screams coming from the upper level of the hotel and a woman yelling, “Let me go.” Officers found tthe 31-year-old Grawn woman, who was dating the suspect and who is the boy’s mother. She told police she’d just been assaulted and she had visible injuries on her neck, O’Brien says.

Hotel staff let officers into the suspect’s room, where the man was passed out on the bed with what turned out to be a .264 blood-alcohol content. The 33-year-old Williamsburg man was arrested for second-degree criminal sexual conduct and second-offense domestic violence with strangulation.
