An unnamed man has sued the Palm Springs Hospital in Hialeah for assault and sexual battery after an incident earlier this year. The lawsuit claims $5 million in damages for the alleged battery. Police questioned and arrested Rene Martinez in connection with the sexual assault on John Doe in September, who waited to report the incident. The victim claims that he did not report the incident right away because he was afraid that the incident wouldn’t be believed by officials.
