On June 27, 2013 the Clarkstown Police Department filed charged against the hotel’s maintenance worker Hector Ixcopal, 38, accusing him of breaking into a woman’s room at 1:20 a.m. and sexually molesting her against her will. He wasn’t daft enough to lock the door behind him, however, and other guests broke up the incident, restraining Ixcopal until police arrived.
By the looks of his mugshot, someone may have given Ixcopal a little taste of street justice on the side.
Police charged Ixcopal for burglary 2nd, criminal sexual act 1st, sex abuse 1st, all of which are felonies. The accused perp lives in one of the rooms at the same location. The victim recognized Ixcopal as her attacker because she had met him earlier in the day at the hotel. She was transported to Nyack Hospital where she was treated and released.
Ixcopal was arraigned in Clarkstown Justice Court before Judge Gerber and remanded to the Rockland County Correctional Facility in lieu of $20,000 bail. He is due back in court on July 1.
