A former Alpharetta restaurant manager charged with rape is facing new charges after a second woman accused him of sexually assaulting her, according to Channel 2 Action News.
Just one month after a woman accused Moises Posada-Lozana of attacking her in a parking garage, another woman told police he inappropriately touched her.
The first alleged attack happened in December, but the accuser didn’t come forward until weeks later, AJC.com previously reported.
After Posada-Lozano finished a shift at Holmes restaurant on South Main Street, he stayed behind with a server and some of her friends to have drinks, police spokesman Sgt. Howard Miller said.
The woman asked Posada-Lozano if she could sober up in his car, Miller said.
"While sitting in the car, the victim reported to us that the suspect began kissing her, touching her in places, private places, with his hands,” Miller told Channel 2.
It escalated into a sexual assault, he said.
"She felt like because of his position as manager he had illegitimate power over her where she felt compelled to follow his lead," Miller told the news station.
Posada-Lozano was charged with rape and booked into the Fulton County jail.
After that arrest, police said another woman who was an employee at the same restaurant came forward with a similar story, according to Channel 2.
"(She) reported to our officers he would give her drinks throughout the night and take her to the parking deck near our city hall, would touch her in her intimate areas and kiss her on the mouth,” Miller told the news station.
The second accuser told officers the incident happened last year after she finished a shift.
"One of the reasons she didn't come forward,” he said, “was when she talked about it with co-workers and other people in the restaurant, she got the feeling they all thought her and our (other) suspect were a couple."
Miller told Channel 2 that detectives had enough to charge Posada-Lozano with a new count of sexual battery.
