On Monday, Eyvor Gomez, age 49, of Pembroke Pines, Florida, was arrested and booked into the Orange County jail, according to FOX 35 Orlando.

Per the arrest affidavit, the female victim told officers she was at a bar inside a restaurant at Disney’s Dolphin Resort when a man approached her. The two began to talk as she was having a drink at the bar, and shortly before the bar closed for the night, Gomez suggested the two step outside away from Disney security surveillance cameras because he had brought his own liquor on the premises.

The officers’ report states that the woman went with Gomez, and at that time, investigators say he began to make unwanted advances toward her. When the woman refused his advances, Gomez pushed her against a glass wall, causing her to lose consciousness, according to the Orange County Sheriff‘s office.

Though Gomez had suggested the two step out of the view of security cameras, one of the Disney security cameras caught footage of the woman as she attempted to crawl away from Gomez, who then proceeded to sexually assault the woman and take a photo of her with his smartphone during the attack against her.

According to Orange County Sheriff‘s deputies, the female victim, followed by Gomez, made her way back into the lobby. She saw a group of strangers and asked them to pretend to know her so she could escape her attacker once and for all.

Gomez was reportedly identified by Disney Security because of an incident that took place the previous evening between him and his wife.

“There was an argument and his wife was escorted back to their room,” reads the arrest affidavit. “[Gomez] matched the description and photograph provided by witnesses. Disney confirmed through surveillance video.”

When investigators caught up to Gomez, they questioned him about the alleged attack. Initially, Gomez completely denied having any contact whatsoever with the female victim, according to police records. Then he changed his story, claiming that he and the woman only engaged in consensual kissing.

He denied anything beyond that, saying he did not force himself on the woman.

Gomez has been charged with sexual battery.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
