In a small hotel in Shreveport, Louisiana, one of the most expensive hotels in the country, there’s a sign that says, “Shawarma Binge Rules.”
It reads, in part: “No one under 21 may stay in this room without a waiver.
No one under 18 may be in this area.
No children under 18 must be under 21.
No guests under 18 years old must be over 18 years of age.”
The sign is in the middle of a crowded room that could have held as many as 300 people.
For the past two months, the room has been the site of a number of high-profile shawarmas, including one where an 11-year-old girl was raped, another where an 18-year, 9-year old boy was raped and the third where a 20-year–old woman was raped.
According to a Shreveton police report, the man who raped the girl on Friday was arrested Saturday and charged with rape.
He has not yet been charged with the 11- and 9-yr-old girls rapes.
The other two shawaras are charged with sexual assault.
Both of the men are being held in the Jefferson Parish jail in New Orleans, where they are expected to appear Monday.
The police report says the 12-year law enforcement veteran who allegedly raped the 10-year and 11-yr old girls told the officers he had no idea the two girls were underage, and that he didn’t think they were in the room when he got home.
But Shrevepact Shrevepo Police Sgt. Steve Goss said it was not uncommon for these incidents to happen.
“The reality is, these people do not know what the law is,” Goss told The Huffington Report.
“It’s a pretty dangerous situation when it happens.
They’re vulnerable to predators, and the best thing you can do is protect them.”
A woman who answered the phone at the hotel, who asked to remain anonymous, said she didn’t know anything about the situation and asked that we not use her last name because she didn,t want anyone to know she was a victim.
She said she and her family were staying at the Shrevepool hotel.
“There is no place to sleep in this hotel,” she said.
“We are terrified, we don’t know what is going on.”
Goss said he had not received any complaints about the shaws before.
He said it’s up to the hotel to decide what to do.
“It’s their business, but it’s also our business and it is our responsibility to make sure that our guests are safe,” he said.
