A man slipped into a downtown hotel room and got into bed with a woman without her permission as she slept early yesterday morning, police said.
The encounter occurred in The Westin Washington, D.C. City Center at 1400 M St. NW about 1:15 a.m. Tuesday.
The man didn’t force his way into the room before he laid next to the sleeping woman, according to authorities. But it wasn’t clear how he got in.
The victim awoke when the man started to rub and touch her right arm. The woman began to tussle with the man soon after, and he eventually left the room.
Morris Sherman, 38, was arrested in connection with the incident and charged with burglary.
Emily Barth, a lawyer who is representing him, wasn’t immediately available to comment.
A Westin representative didn’t have an immediate comment.
