NAPLES, Fla. — A South Florida woman was repeatedly raped and assaulted in front of her young son by Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell in 2008 at a hotel in Naples, Florida, according to a lawsuit filed last week.

The lawsuit was filed against Darren Indyke and Richard Kahn as co-executors of the deceased Epstein’s estate.  

The plaintiff is a real estate broker, who said she was 26 and working in Palm Beach, Florida, when Epstein and Maxwell sexually assaulted and abused her, according to the lawsuit. She is identified only as “Jane Doe” in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that for more than five months, the woman was repeatedly raped and sexually assaulted by Epstein and other people Epstein trafficked her to.  

She was forced by Epstein to pose naked and perform sexual acts for photos and videos and was coerced into unwanted surgery on her genitals, according to the lawsuit.  

The woman was hired to go to Epstein’s Palm Beach home in January 2008 to cut his hair. When she arrived, Epstein was naked and raped her with assistance from Maxwell, according to the lawsuit.  

After the assault, Epstein forced the woman to accept $200, according to the lawsuit.  

She attempted to leave and stated she was going to contact law enforcement.  

Maxwell stated she already called the police. Two men who claimed to be police officers arrived at Epstein’s mansion and threatened to arrest the woman for prostitution and take away her son, according to the lawsuit. 

Epstein and Maxwell ordered the woman to drive with them in her vehicle, picking up her son along the way to the hotel in Naples, the lawsuit adds.  

During the trip, they pulled off the side of the road to a waterway filled with alligators and Epstein ushered the woman to the body of water, according to the lawsuit.

“(Epstein) told her in explicit detail that, as had happened to other women in the past, she would end up in this body of water and be devoured by alligators should she ever reveal what Epstein had done to her,’’ the lawsuit states.  

Maxwell, has pleaded not guilty to charges brought a year after Epstein was arrested on sex trafficking charges. He killed himself at a Manhattan federal lockup in August 2019.

Filing and details of the lawsuit were originally reported by the Miami Herald.
