    The Orange County Sheriff's Office is investigating after an employee says she was attacked at a Disney resort.

    Authorities say the alleged attack happened in a room at the Art of Animation Resort on March 28.

    According to deputies, a man confronted a housekeeper when she went inside a room that had its door open to clean. Deputies say the woman fought off the attacker, who fled the area. The woman was scratched during the attack and taken to a hospital for treatment.

    In a statement, Walt Disney World said it is working closely with the sheriff's office to find the suspect.
