An employee working in a Celebrity Cruises youth center on a cruise ship was arrested for abusive sexual contact of a minor after a 6-year-old girl accused him of inappropriate touching.
The accused admitted to the act and confessed to inappropriately touching at least three other children, consciously avoiding detection by the ship’s surveillance cameras.
The cruise line terminated the employee and reported the incident to the authorities, emphasizing zero tolerance for such behavior. (Trending: Top Democrat Loses In Historic Landslide)
The affidavit noted that Castor sexually abused children “on multiple occasions, while consciously hiding acts from the Youth Center’s security cameras.”
“We have zero tolerance for this behavior,” the company said in a statement. “We reported this to law enforcement and terminated the crew member, and we will continue to fully cooperate with authorities.”
The accused is scheduled for a preliminary hearing and is a citizen of the Philippines.
