More than one company in Texas is facing a lawsuit after a janitor urinated in the water bottles of employees and spread sexually transmitted diseases, KRIV-TV reports.
Lucio Catarino Diaz, 50 was arrested in October and was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Law firm Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner partnered with Mo Aziz and attorney Morgan Mills, together with Kimberley Spurlock and Samantha Spencer of Spurlock & Associates, P.C. have filed a lawsuit on the behalf of 13 women against the companies which they say “permitted and disregarded” the actions of Diaz.
As KRIV points out, Diaz, who allegedly has the Herpes Simplex 1 Virus, allegedly tampered with water bottles in a Houston office building which caused over 13 women in the same building to test positive for incurable STDs.
From KRIV: We reported in October about a woman who said she noticed a water bottle she kept on her desk smelled and tasted funny. She soon realized it was pee. Later on, in August 2022, several other women also noticed the water bottles in their building smelled and tasted foul, similar to urine. This caused one of the women to buy a hidden camera and place it on her desk.
The video was said to show nighttime janitor Diaz approaching the woman’s desk and setting his cleaning supplies down. Diaz then allegedly began to rub his genitalia on the interior and mouth of a water bottle sitting on the desk, even turning it upwards to ensure he touched the water. The video then allegedly showed him placing the bottle back where he found it and continuing to clean the desk.
The next day the woman reportedly sent a copy of the video to the building’s management company and told them she would be notifying the other tenants in the building. The management company asked the woman not to tell the tenants and told her they would handle the incident and let them know, reports say.
“Even after building management knew about the video they did not contact the police. Our clients did,” says Mo Aziz. However, the building allegedly gave no notification to the tenants, and later the same evening the hidden camera caught Diaz doing the act again.
