Hotel guest woke up to find manager sucking his toes – and now he plans to sue

A guest staying at the South Hilton Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee, got a rude awakening at 5am on on March 30 when he discovered that a man had been allegedly sucking his toes while he was asleep.

The hotel’s night manager, 52-year-old David Neal, was arrested Friday (May 5) in connection with the bizarre assault, according to local police.

According to Nashville Metropolitan Police, Neal had generated a key card to get into a room occupied by Peter Brennan, who was in town for a business conference.

The shocked guest almost immediately recognised Neal, because he was one of the hotel employees who had been sent to his room the day before to fix an issue with his TV.

“It’s completely terrifying,” Mr Brennan told local news station WSMV.

“I was in Nashville for a work conference, and I was staying at the Hilton Downtown," he said. "I woke up at around 5am and I was being sexually assaulted by a man who had broken into my room,” Brennan said.

Mr Brennan now plans to sue the hotel: “I just feel like Hilton has not been helpful or forthcoming whatsoever and I don’t know why, but it’s very disconcerting”.

Michael Fisher , a lawyer acting for Mr Brennan, told reporters: “It’s to our understanding that the employee was terminated based on his refusal to give a statement to Hilton, but I myself have contacted Hilton numerous times”.

When confronted by police at his home in nearby Lebanon later that day, Neal claimed that he had only gone into the room because he thought he could smell smoke and he wanted to make sure that the guest was OK.

Neil had made no reports of a smell of smoke to security staff, no guests recalled smelling smoke, and no fire alarms had been triggered.

The room key that Neal had used to access the guest’s room was not recovered, and he told police that he had thrown it away.

Neal was arrested on Friday March 31 and charged with aggravated burglary and assault, according to police.

He is currently jailed on a $27,000 bond, according to local news station WKRN.

A statement from the hotel read: “The safety and security of our guests and team members is our highest priority. We are working closely with the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department, and, as part of company policy, we do not comment on ongoing investigations”.
