He wanted more than a mere 'thank you'

26-year-old Japanese woman who was in the country as a tourist had complained to Galle Police that a steward of the hotel she was staying at had sexually abused her.

She had gone outside to take a shower since the bathroom of the hotel was located outside.

Realizing that she had closed the room door accidentally leaving the keys behind, a steward had been asked to go and fetch her keys.

The steward who had managed to retrieve the keys with the aid of a hook sent through a window of the room she was occupying and had been humbly thanked by the Japanese woman.

The unsatisfied steward had replied to the woman that a mere ‘thank you’ was not enough and had stroked her breasts.

Officers at the Galle Police Women’s and Children’s Bureau had taken the suspect into custody. (D G Sugathapala)

    There is a thing call "A Master Key". Instead of hooking, she could have requested the "Hotel Desk" to open her room. Something is not right........!!!

    Even if prostitution is legalised it would cost money, whereas this guy wanted a free lunch.
