From WFTV News in Orlando – Cadilia Juste, a housekeeper at Disney’s Pop Century resort claims that she was badly beaten by a co-worker while cleaning a room at the hotel last week.  The woman, recently released from 3 days in the hospital, is also claiming that Disney threatened to fire her if she didn’t show up for work.

Another Disney cast member – 26 year old Hasan Tashpulatov was arrested in connection with the attack, and has been suspended pending the outcome of the case.  Juste claims that Taspulatov beat her, tried to choke her and climb on top of her – but she was able to fight him off and run for help.

Disney told WFTV news in Orlando that there was a ‘language barrier’ in communicating with Juste (she spoke to reporters via an interpreter) and that they would do everything they could to help her through this ordeal.
