Man Arrested for Hard Rock Rape

Man sexually assaulted woman in casino's parking garage: Seminole cops

Seminole Police have arrested a man who they say raped a woman in the parking garage of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood in April.

Edwin Joseph Chavez, 30, is out on bond after he was arrested Thursday and charged with sexual battery for the April 3 rape of a woman at the casino's Paradise Complex.

According to Seminole Police, Chavez and the unidentified woman met at a club at the Hard Rock that night and had made their way to the 7th floor deck of the parking garage of one of their vehicles.

That's when the alleged sexual assault occurred. After an over four-month investigation, Chavez was arrested. He was released on bond from the Broward County jail early Friday.
