"Far too often, survivors of sexual assault suffer in isolation," District Attorney Gascón said. "We must ensure that survivors have all options available to help with recovery, including trauma-informed services for healing and support to report such crimes."
According to authorities, some of the allegations include forcibly raping a 25-year-old woman at a home in West Hollywood in May 2014, sexually assaulting two women, aged 33 and 46, on two separate occasions at a bar in West Hollywood, in addition to forcibly raping a 30-year-old woman at the same bar in July 2019.
Hyatt is due back in court Oct. 12.
