A foreign guesthouse operator was arrested in Sri Lanka Friday after two French tourists complained they had been sexually molested at his guest house, police said.
The 44-year-old Olivier Sage, who manages the "French Villa" beach property at Unawatuna, 120 kilometres (75 miles) south of Colombo, would be taken before a magistrate later Friday, said senior superintendent Jayantha Wickremasinghe.
"The two French tourists complained that the guest house owner used criminal force on them two days ago," Wickremasinghe said. "We have sufficient grounds to make the arrest."
