Suspect Arrested Fleeing Sexual Assault

For Immediate Release:  July 8, 2020


On July 7, 2020, a man was arrested after sexually assaulting a housekeeper at a local hotel.

At 3:14 pm, patrol officers responded to the Claridge Hotel located at 123 South Indiana Avenue for a report of a sexual assault.  While responding, officers were advised that a Claridge employee was following the suspect on to the Boardwalk.  The suspect, Kye Hardison, was quickly located and taken into custody without incident by Officer John Bell.

An investigation by detectives of the Special Victims Unit revealed that Hardison had unlawfully entered a 12th floor hotel room.  The victim, a 61-year-old woman, entered the room and saw Hardison inside.  The victim left, and Hardison, who was not the registered occupant, followed shortly after.  The victim then re-entered the room and Hardison pushed her inside and physically and sexually assaulted her.  Hardison then fled the room and the hotel where he was later arrested.

Claridge Hotel security and surveillance personnel assisted in this investigation.


ARRESTED:  Kye Hardison, a 33-year-old man from Camden, NJ.

CHARGES:  Sexual assault, simple assault, and burglary.

Hardison was remanded to the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
