British model Hayley Bray was enjoying a vacation with her family in California when she was faced with an unexpected and traumatic experience that left her feeling vulnerable and sick.
The 28-year-old went away for the holidays with her partner and their 3-year-old daughter, anticipating a family-friendly vacation. But things quickly took a turn when Bray stepped out of their room to do laundry in the room just next door. In footage caught on the hotel’s surveillance cameras, Bray is seen putting items into the washing machine next to another woman, then a tall man approaches the door, walks up behind the model and forces his hand between her legs.
“He walked up to me and put his whole hand up in between my legs and tried to get his fingers in between my legs very aggressively. I was shocked,” Bray told the Daily Mail. “I slapped his hand off me and said, ‘What the f*** are you doing? You know that’s assault?’”
After a moment of shock and collecting her things, Bray is seen walking out of the room and in the same direction that the man ran off. After threatening to call the police if he touched her again, the man left the property, according to the Daily Mail.
Bray then immediately went to the front desk to report the incident and was shown the security footage, which left her feeling ill.
“She played me the CCTV and was shocked anyone could do this to someone in broad daylight,” Bray said. “I feel sick every time I watch it.”
The model called the police, which has prompted an investigation of the suspect who committed the assault. The Garden Grove Police Department tells Yahoo Lifestyle, “No arrests have been made.”
