A former chairman of one of Egypt’s major banks has been arrested on charges of sexually abusing a maid at a Manhattan hotel, just weeks after the arrest of former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn on similar allegations, police said.

Mahmoud Abdel Salam Omar was accused of sexually abusing the maid at the Pierre, a luxury hotel near Central Park and Fifth Avenue on the upper east side, police said.

The maid was called to Omar’s room on Sunday night to drop off tissues, police said. But once inside the 74-year-old’s room, police said Omar would not let her leave and touched her inappropriately. The encounter was not reported until Monday when Omar was arrested, police said.

Paul Browne, a police spokesman, said detectives found the complainant to be credible.
