Vegas Police Ignored Complaints Against Rapist Vegas Security Guard

A one-time Four Queens security officer, identified as Jose Dejesus Garcia, 40, was recently charged for alleged sexual assaults involving two women at the Las Vegas venue in 2018 — but police refused to even arrest the guy because they believed the women to be prostitutes.

The charges relate to incidents that allegedly took place while Garcia was on duty, and apparently armed, at the downtown venue, the Review-Journal said.

Garcia was being held last week on $20,000 bail at the Clark County Detention Center on three counts of sexual assault, the report adds.

The two women had met men at a bar inside the Four Queens. Later, the women went to the men’s hotel room.

Upon the women leaving the room, Garcia was waiting for them by the elevator and told them “he knew what they were doing, working as prostitutes in the casino,” a police report quoted by the newspaper claims.

“Jose told them he would not call the police, but in exchange, they had to do something for him,” the report added. The trio went to the stairwell, where he allegedly forced at least one of them to perform oral sex on him. The other woman recorded the sex assault on a cellphone and the video was later given to police.

Even though the report on the incident was completed in September 2018, a warrant for his arrest was not approved until last month — because the police didn’t seem to consider rape against prostitutes to be a real crime.
