Lawsuit Alleges Maintenance Staff Sexually Assaulted Women in Housing Complex

A group of women who live in a Baltimore public housing complex filed a lawsuit Monday alleging that maintanence workers demanded sexual favors in return for repairing broken appliances in their apartments.

The lawsuit claims the abuse at Gilmor Homes was perpetuated primarily by maintenance supervisor Clinton Coleman and another worker. They say the workers demanded sexual favors in return for repairing a gas leak, exterminating roaches and making other improvements. 

The women also said Housing Commissioner Paul Graziano and other housing officials "ignored numerous complaints and repeatedly allowed abusers to maintain their positions of power."
