HOUSTON, TEXAS: Lucio Diaz, a Houston janitor, was arrested for urinating into the bottle of a Texas woman. The woman later contracted STDs and the act of the janitor was caught on camera. Meanwhile, 13 more victims have come forward alleging Diaz peed in their water bottles.
Earlier, Diaz was charged with indecent assault and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and is held on a $75,000 bond. However, with new victims coming forward, investigators say additional charges are possible, reports DailyMail.
The complainant woman stated, "This individual is a sick man. I want this to go to trial. I want him to be exposed for who he is, and I want him to pay for what he's done to me and then be deported." The woman, who did not want to be identified, became suspicious in August after the office water dispenser started giving out a foul scent. A few days after, she realized there was a gross smell coming out of her bottle and threw it away.
She told ABC 13, "Pulls out his penis and puts his penis in my bottle, basically rinses his penis in the water. I learned I acquired (a sexually-transmitted disease) for which he also tested positive for. He gave me an STD I will have for the rest of my life. Nothing is going to change it. Nothing will make it better for me. In fact, I feel like, for the rest of my life, I will have to be careful." Further, the building's owner, Altera Fund Advisors, responded with a statement from CEO Terry Quinn, "Our management company immediately cooperated with the police department in this matter as soon as we were made aware of this potential issue by our tenant. They were advised by the police not to alert or approach the alleged perpetrator so that he could be arrested. He was arrested when he returned to the building."
As reported by MEAWW, the victim's attorney Kim Spurlock said, "They have a duty to protect their tenants, and they wholly failed in those responsibilities." Court records show Diaz is in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody. The Mexican national's immigration and work status are unclear, reported ABC 13.
