The Jane Hotel

A 39-year-old woman claims she was raped by an employee at the Jane Hotel who snuck into her room once she was asleep.

The woman filed a lawsuit against the Jane Hotel and its owners, an entity controlled by BD Hotels, the New York Post reported. She had stayed at the hotel on June 3, 2018, on a layover while traveling from Honolulu to Spain, according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit, which doesn’t name the alleged rapist as a defendant, claims a restaurant worker in the hotel used a master key to enter her room while she was asleep and then raped her.

Her attorney, Shanin Specter, told The Real Deal that his client had filed a criminal complaint in connection to the incident, but the New York Police Department would not confirm this. Specter said the restaurant employee could later be named in the civil lawsuit.
