WARWICK, RI — Officers determined a man arrested for a nude hotel B&E March 15 after he stripped, applied baby oil and used his work key to enter a sleeping woman’s Jefferson Boulevard Holiday Inn Express room was not so slick.

Police charged George J. Sylvia, 51, of 2117 Patriot Way, West Greenwich, RI with breaking and entering and indecent exposure. He was arraigned that day in Third District Court and scheduled for a June 15 court screening, then released on $20,000 personal recognizance, with a Non-Domestic No Contact Order, according to a Warwick Police report.

Officer Michael Rosa was called to the hotel at 901 Jefferson Boulevard at 4:58 a.m. by the hotel for a report of indecent exposure. When he arrived, he spoke with a member of the hotel’s housekeeping staff, who told him that she and several coworkers were staying overnight at the hotel on the same floor due to a forecasted storm. Each employee had a master key fob allowing them entry into all of the rooms on the floor, she said, according to Rosa’s report.

The woman said she was sleeping when she woke to find Silvia, naked, at the foot of her bed. She screamed at him to leave, and he left the room immediately, she said, without touching her or anything in the room. She then got up and went to wake her friend, who was in the room across the hall. When she opened her door, Sylvia was standing the doorway. She screamed at Sylvia to, “go away,” and he retreated to his own room, she said, according to the report.

Rosa spoke about the nude hotel B&E with the hotel security officer, who had already spoken to both Sylvia and the woman. When he spoke to Sylvia, he said, the man had said he’d gotten drunk and left his room to use the bathroom, then entered the wrong room.

When Rosa spoke with Sylvia in his room, which had a bathroom, the man said he had been drinking while watching TV naked. He said he applied baby oil to himself, then felt he was “in the wrong room,” and left to use the rest room. He left his hotel room and walked to the room next door, which he said he didn’t know was occupied, and entered the bathroom there. He realized the bathroom was the wrong room began to leave, but was confronted by his coworker in the process.

“It should be noted that Sylvia’s story changed several times and presented conflicting points to his original statements,” according to Rosa’s report.

Rosa arrested Sylvia and charged him with B&E and indecent exposure. He transported Sylvia to Warwick Police Headquarters, 99 Veterans Memorial Drive, where he was processed and scheduled for arraignment in Third District Court.
