Worker Suspected Of Robbing, Raping Boss
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A P.F. Chang’s employee in Memphis is accused of forcing his way into the restaurant after it closed and raping and robbing his manager, police said.
Jorge Rojas-Morin was arrested when he showed up to work the next day on Monday. He faces charges of rape, robbery and aggravated kidnapping.
According to police, the manager believed all the doors were locked when she closed up shop Sunday night. But police believe one door was propped open earlier in the night with a set of chopsticks.
The manager was in the back office when someone knocked on the door. Thinking it was another employee, the woman opened the door and a masked Rojas-Morin pointed a gun to her head and threatened to kill her, police said.
Police said he tied her to a chair, blindfolded her, stole all the cash from the drawer, raped her and then left.
A woman who answered the door at Rojas-Morin’s listed address declined to comment.
P.F. Chang’s issued the following statement:
“We are appalled and shocked by this senseless crime. We are cooperating with the local authorities on their investigation and will do whatever we can to support them in their efforts to bring this perpetrator to justice.”
Those who frequent the restaurant and Memphis shopping center were horrified and dismayed by the attack.
“Just very devastating,” said resident Kysha Rice. “Kind of scary.”
