DOWNTOWN CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - 19 Action News is breaking exclusive details on a brutal attack in a downtown hotel room.

A woman staying at the Hampton Inn was reportedly raped and investigators just indicted a security guard and a valet in the crime.

According to police some ladies, part of a bachelorette party, got a little tipsy after a night out on the town.

19 Action News spoke to the victim by phone.

"You try to be safe not drink and drive. We got a hotel room to do the right thing and this is the kind of thing that happens," said the victim.
Cuyahoga County Prosecutors have indicted Kevin Kozieracki and Solomon Baba. A police report shows the two men kept going into the victim's room asking if she was OK then attacked her when she fell asleep. The guard was even in a uniform.

19 Action News tried to get answers from the hotel. When we did not have any luck we went looking for Mr. Baba. Folks at his apartment complex say he's moved out. Mr. Kozieracki, meantime, is already in jail.
