A Florida man is charged with locking up a Danvers woman in a Rte. 9 hotel because she stole his watch after he paid her for sex, police said.
Edward M. Kenner, 30, of Weston, Fla., and Breanne M. Fraser, 28, were arrested at the Framingham Sheraton at 3:50 a.m. yesterday after a loud and confusing incident, police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany said.
Hotel security called police to report a disturbance in one of their rooms, police said. Security said three women were banging on a room door and screaming to get in. The security guard forced the door open, and found Kenner holding the bathroom door closed and Fraser inside yelling to be let out, Shastany said.
Fraser told police she was visiting Kenner when he became angry.
Kenner forced her into the bathroom and refused to let her out until she returned a watch he suspected that she stole, Shastany said.
On a her cell phone Fraser called friends who were waiting outside the hotel. They tried to get her out, which drew the attention of hotel security.
When questioned, Kenner never denied the allegations, police said. He also said Fraser was a prostitute and he has been a client of hers for three years.
Kenner said he paid Fraser $300, Shastany said.
Fraser denied being a prostitute, but when police searched her they found $300 in cash. They did not find the watch, the lieutenant said.
Kenner, of 1695 Osprey Road, was charged with kidnapping, assault and battery, malicious mischief causing more than $250 and paying money for sex.
Fraser, of 62 Water St., was charged with prostitution.
Kenner posted $500 bail after his Framingham District Court arraignment yesterday and is due back in court on Aug. 25 for a pretrial conference.
Fraser was released without bail and is due back in court on Sept. 2 for a pretrial conference.
