Cruise ship worker admits to raping passenger

By Owen Weldon     Feb 20, 2014 in Crime
A cruise ship worker has confessed to raping, as well as beating a passenger in her stateroom. Federal investigators say he also tried to throw the victim overboard.
According to LA Times, Ketut Pujayasa, 28, an Indonesian citizen, was charged with the attack, which occurred on a Holland America Line cruise ship that departed on February 9 from Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
According to NY Daily, Pujayasa told the FBI that he attacked the 31-year-old American woman after he knocked on her door several times, and she dissed him after telling him to "wait a minute, son of a b*tch."
Pujayasa said the comment offended him and he was angry for the rest of the day. He then came up with a plan to punch her in the face, and returned to her room later on in the day. He entered the room by using a master key, and hid on the balcony, but ended up falling asleep.
Once he woke up, the woman was back inside her room, and that is when he attacked.
According to Daily Mail, during the attack Pujayasa choked his victim with a phone wire.
The victim fought back, and at one point during the struggle she tried to stab him with a corkscrew. Eventually he got scared off and ran away. The victim then fled into a hallway, where she was discovered by a fellow passenger.
She was airlifted to a hospital in Florida after the ship docked in Honduras. Pujayasa was detained by security guards on the ship, and kept him detained until the ship arrived in the Everglades on Sunday.
