ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A Walt Disney World custodian has been arrested on a sexual battery charge after a co-worker says he attacked her in a closet at work.

Authorities said Friday that the attack by Gideon Hunte on an Epcot worker occurred Thursday while the theme park was open.

WFTV in Orlando reports that the woman told investigators that she yelled and resisted Hunte until he let her ago.

She then ran to a supervisor who called authorities.

Hunte was being held without bail at the Orange County Jail.

A Disney spokeswoman didn't return an email inquiry but said in a statement to WFTV that Hunte has been placed on unpaid leave.

The statement says Disney has zero tolerance for such behavior.
