The shocking moment Disney Cruise Line dining room server, 33, 'molested girl, 11, in ship elevator'
Surveillance video shows the shocking moment an 11-year-old girl was allegedly molested by a Disney cruise worker at Port Canaveral, Florida just hours before the ship set sail.
Milton Braganza, a 33-year-old dining room server from Goa, India, allegedly fondled the girl's breasts and forcibly kissed her shortly after the Brazilian adolescent boarded the Disney Dream ship on August 5 with her grandmother and sister for a five-night journey to the Bahamas.
Since Florida authorities were not informed, the suspect stayed aboard the ship as it set sail and has since been released by police in the Bahamas to return to his home country, angering U.S.officials.
Surveillance video shows the young passenger encountering the cruise line employee at 2:54pm, near the elevators shortly after she boarded the ship. According to estimates, a five day journey on a Disney cruises costs an average of $900 per person.
The girl boarded the elevator, where she said the man grabbed her breast, groped her and then kissed her, putting 'mouth on mouth,' she said according to a cruise security report.
In the video, the man's back is to the camera blocking a view of the girl.
She informed her grandmother of the assault and minutes later video shows the girl, her grandmother and her sister emerging from an elevator and making their way to the ship's customer service desk to report the crime.
Security officers on the ship began investigating an 'inappropriate sexual act' at 3:22pm and at 4:40pm the dining room manager reviewed the video and identified the man in the footage as Milton Braganza.
There are more than 1,458 employees crew members who work on the ship.
The ship left the port at 5:02pm.
Braganza was called to report into security at 7:50pm.
Florida law enforcement were informed of the incident several hours later, on August 6.
