Orlando, FL (December 19, 2018) – A lifeguard at Walt Disney World was accused of stalking another Disney employee and has since been arrested for harassment that includes cyberstalking.
A female Disney worker spoke with police and said that she had been stalked by another Disney employee, who has since been identified as 18-year-old Nicolas Palazuelos. His accuser told investigators that she and Palazuelos had been working at Disney and became friends, but after two months, he began harassing her and demanding to come to her apartment uninvited.
The accuser told Palazuelos that she didn’t want to see him anymore, which is when he sent photos he had taken of her through an open bathroom door to her friends and family. Because of this, there was already an internal investigation conducted by Disney. Deputies took him into custody, which led to him denying all of the claims.
Palazuelos did, however, admit taking photos of the victim and emailing them to friends and family.
