Cruise Employee Charged

By  | 

A Royal Caribbean cruise employee has been arrested and charged with attempting to rape a passenger during a weeklong cruise.

Authorities say the 34-year-old man was arrested Saturday when the Legend of the Seas docked in the Port of Tampa. He's being held without bond.

A sheriff's report says the man met the 22-year-old woman on the ship last Tuesday and offered to give her a tour of the ship. It's alleged he tried to pull the woman into a dark room and rape her. She escaped.

The cruise line says it's awaiting the outcome of the police investigation.
