Ahmed SofyanPORT CANAVERAL, FL – A 36-year-old crew member on the Disney Dream has been arrested after a 13-year-old passenger said he molested her on the cruise ship.

According to reports, the ship was docked at Port Canaveral when Disney Cruise Lines contacted local police, the FBI and the Coast Guard to report that one of their crew members, Ahmed Sofyan, had been accused of molesting a teen passenger.

The teen said that Sofyan, who is from Indonesia, lured her into an empty cabin and sexually molested her. She added that Sofyan would not let her leave the cabin when tried to escape. He only let her go after the girl told him that her parents would be looking for her.

Sofyan would later admit his actions to police, stating that he knew the girl’s young age and knew that his behavior was wrong. Sofyan was arrested on two counts of lewd or lascivious molestation and one count of false imprisonment.

“We have no tolerance whatsoever for the behavior alleged in this incident,” said Karl Holz, President of Disney Cruise Line, in a release. “We are sorry that anything of this nature could have occurred on one of our ships. We place enormous value on the trust our guests have in us, and nothing is more important to us than the safety and security of each and every one of our guests.”

That’s an interesting response considering their actions after a similar incident happened on the same ship in 2012. That’s when a ship’s surveillance camera captured one of their cruise line employees, Milton Braganza, molesting an 11-year-old passenger inside an elevator while docked at Port Canaveral.

Disney security did not immediately notify local authorities after the incident was reported, even after they had watched the video and identified the employee. Instead, they waited until the ship set sail for the Bahamas and then, once there, paid to fly Braganza back home to India.

    1. He knew her age. 2. He knew his actions were wrong. 3. Put a bullet between his eyes and toss him overboard to be fish food. Scum.

    The Disney Dream turned out to be a nightmare for at least one 13 year old girl. This is the shit that makes my blood boil, that attitude of “Yeah, I knew she was only 13, so what mutherfucker? And?”

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Guess the “Rat” never learned how to do proper background checks… Way to protect the kids, Disney.

  • Vesper B

    This guy looks a lot like the other cruise molester, no?

  • thebossessecretary

    A Disney cruise. Can you think of a better job for a child molester? I was always really reticent about letting my kids participate in “kid’s activities.” Because I have these kinds of freaks in my family and they really get off on being involved in this kind of shit.

  • Death2Jesus

    So Disney has trafficked third world employees working on their cruise ships. It’s common for them to have sex with 13 year olds in their country. If Disney wasn’t lazy and hired Americans, with a background check this might lessen the chances of this happening. I blame Disney

  • MrClayton

    Sure Disney will try and ply the girl with a free ticket to WDW and maybe some coupons to Disney.com

  • Nick Trygg

    Nah, id want him alive, so i could sui the living hell out of Disney. Id get the best lawyer money could buy, then id make Disney pay for a new life for my family.

  • DeadlockVictim

    At least he wasn’t in a Donald Duck costume, doing the voice.

  • Inferus

    By the looks of him, she probably took him for Goofy.

    If Disney had reported the 2012 incident:
    1. The ship would be detained— loss of profits.
    2. Passengers would leave the ship— loss of profits.
    3. The deportation trial of Braganza and other expenses would have cost authorities a small mint— very cost effective and much more fair to the overworked police and overtaxed US citizens.

    I am not sure what you were insinuating, but you make it sound like shareholders should have no rights. What kind of an American are you?

  • Sejanus

    That sick effer.
    A shame he can only be put to death once.

  • itsknotme

    A crime occurring in International waters needs to be handled Internationally. Sentence him to 20 years to life riding “It’s a small world” boat.

  • DeweyCheatam

    Excellent idea. And they’re not mutually exclusive. The perp can be justly exterminated and Disney still successfully sued, IMO. Win win. :)

  • Iknowbetter

    Apparently Disney doesn’t run background checks on its employees. What a great place for a pedophile to work! I say Castrate him .

  • DeweyCheatam

    And a $100 coupon for her next cruise!

    There is an islamic movement to have people marry early as mandated in the Koran: girls at age 12 and boys at age 16. Since he’s from Indonesia, he’s in the muslim social milieu, if not muslim himself (which they never say) — she wasn’t a child to him — she was a ripe woman.

    Thighing of children is practiced in many Arab and Muslim countries, notably in Saudi Arabia and Yemen and Gulf countries. an old man removes the clothes of a sex year old girl and slips his erect penis between her thighs, furiously rubbing until he makes what’s called “Chinese eyes” and he ejaculates on over her thighs. Totally disgusting!

  • salepo

    Ewwwww I so didnt need that mental image

  • julie

    What’s Disney’s motto “Happiest Place in The World”, apparently if kids like being molested. Ifs they can’t

  • julie

    Accidently posted when I was trying to kill a mosquito. Ok as I was saying since they are having trouble screening pedophiles, I would suggest this procedure as a back up, When the back ground checks comes back clean, next show them some kitty porn, if they display the slightest bit of excitement or they look like they are at ease with this trash, no job for them.

  • Eyam Ova-Urazis

    There’s kitty porn?

  • Lena60

    Yeah, cats need love too :P

  • Eyam Ova-Urazis

    I need to reevaluate my avatar.

    I need some therapy to help me deal with this shit! I called Dr. Wigglefarmer, to make a visit, he told me collecting folks heads is normal but I gotta brush their teeth. So now I’m brushing four mouths at a time even using my feet.
