Woman says boss made sexual advances
A Martinez woman told police Sunday that her employer made sexual advances.
The 21-year-old, who works for an Evans personal care home owned by her cousin and her cousin's husband, said that about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, the 60-year-old husband showed her an adult film in the back room of the home. The wife was out of town, and he touched the employee inappropriately, she said.
She told him to stop and went to sit on a couch in a different room. He sat next to her and moved his hand up her leg.
She went into another room, but he entered the room, locked the door and continued to make sexual comments, she told police. After she repeatedly denied his request, he offered her $50 in exchange for sex, she said.
She went home and called the sheriff's office.
