Police arrested a transgender housekeeper at an International Drive hotel after they say he touched a 14-year-old boy inappropriately.

Vanessa Olmos, 35, was arrested at the Days Inn on the 5800 block of I-Drive on Wednesday afternoon after Orlando police received a call from the boy's mother that Olmos touched the genitals of her son.

Orlando police told Local 6 Olmos said he's a man who lives as a woman and that he hasn't gone by his real name, "Christopher" since moving to the US from Mexico.

According to the report, the victim heard Olmos say "room service" outside of their roomand the victim told her to "come in." Olmos asked if they had any dirty towels and if the victim was alone, which he was, according to the police report. Olmos then asked "Can I touch?" The victim responded, "touch what?"

Police said Olmos then grabbed the victim's genitals on the outside of his shorts and said "you hot." The victim then responded "you're weird" and walked to the bathroom, waiting for Olmos to leave, according to the report.

Police said they spoke to the victim's mother, who said she had already swapped out towels with Olmos before the incident. Olmos said he had never touched the victim or entered the room.

Olmons was arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious molestation of a victim younger than 16 and battery.

The victim wasn't injured.

Local 6 spoke to some tourists in the area staying at the same Days Inn. They said staying at the hotel after the incident makes them feel uneasy.

"Especially when here are a lot of tourists and kids around, I think hotels overall they should be more careful who they hire," said Isabel Almonte.
