Woman accuses Waffle House chair of sexual harassment


ATLANTA (REUTERS) - A Georgia woman has accused the chairman of the Waffle House restaurant chain of sexually harassing her for close to a decade while working as his personal aide and housekeeper.

The allegations against Mr Joseph Rogers Jr were detailed in a police incident report published online on Friday by the Marietta Daily Journal.

The Atlanta police report, dated Sept 28, 2012, included lurid accusations of repeated sexual harassment from 2003, when the woman said she began to work for him, to May this year.

Mr David Cohen, a Marietta, Georgia, lawyer, told Reuters on Friday he was one of the attorneys representing the woman and confirmed that she had filed the police report.
