Houston janitor accused of spreading STD to multiple women through office building water bottles

HOUSTON (KIAH) — A group of women in Houston has filed a joint lawsuit after alleging they contracted a sexually transmitted infection from a janitor accused of urinating in several water bottles in their office building.

Thirteen women, who will be represented by the Houston law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, along with Samantha Spencer of Spurlock & Associates, PC, have filed a lawsuit against multiple companies, claiming they “have allowed and ignored”. behaviour.”

The lawsuit was initially brought by four women who worked in an office building in east Houston where Lucio Diaz worked as a janitor. He was charged in November 2022 with urinating in a water bottle in a woman’s office while being diagnosed with herpes simplex 1 (HSV-1).

According to the suit, the women said they noticed a foul taste and odor to the bottled water in their building in late August, similar to urine. A woman then placed a hidden camera in her office.

The hidden camera reportedly showed Diaz laying down his cleaning supplies and rubbing his penis over the inside and mouth of a water bottle left on a desk. He then returned the bottle and proceeded to clean the room, the lawyers said.

The next day, the woman sent the hidden video to the building’s management company and said she would inform other tenants about what was happening. According to the lawsuit, the company told her not to and assured her that the situation would be handled and they would notify the tenants.

But no report was made and the woman then captured Diaz as he did the same act later that night, the lawsuit alleges.

It took until October for the company to notify other tenants of Diaz’s alleged actions, the lawsuit said.

The defendants in the lawsuit are the owner of the building, the building management company, the maintenance company and the cleaning company that employed the accused janitor.

On October 13, Diaz was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon by the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. He is currently being held by immigration officials.
