Cosplayer Assault Update

Police are continuing to investigate the July 28 attack that left a teen cosplayer unconscious by the San Diego Marriott Marquis and Marina pool on Harbor Drive. The San Diego Union-Tribune’s story names the person arrested but says police are still trying to determine who inflicted her injuries.

Police determined she had been with a man she knew most of the day, and was with him until about 11 p.m. when a party they went to in one of the hotel’s rooms was broken up after a noise complaint, Rakos said. That man, identified as Justin Kalior, was later arrested at the hotel.

He was booked into jail on suspicion of sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. He was not arrested on assault charges.

“We really want to determine who is responsible for her injuries and we are still investigating,” Rakos said.

The San Diego NBC affiliate also has a video report with quotes from the cosplayer’s mother, here.
