An aspiring model claiming to have been attacked by Jeffrey Epstein after posing as Victoria & # 39; s Secret Scout, returned to the scene of the alleged incident for a new interview.
Alicia Arden told me Inside Edition that & # 39; very creepy & # 39; and & # 39; a little worrying & # 39; was to be at the Santa Monica hotel, where she claims that the pedophile took off her clothes and touched her in 1997 after promising her possible work with the lingerie colossus.
She was then 26 and told earlier The New York Times that once she was at the hotel, Epstein started to tear off her clothes and talked about her wanting to handle & # 39; before she fled the room.
& # 39; His weapons were his hands, & # 39; said Arden.

Difficult memories: Alicia Arden said it was & # 39; very scary & # 39; and & # 39; a little worrying & # 39; was to be in the Santa Monica hotel (above), where she claims that Jeffrey Epstein abused her
Victim: Alicia Arden (above in LA circa 2002) filed a police report in which she said she was sexually assaulted by Epstein in a hotel in Santa Monica in 1997 after posing as a model scout
The police report, which identified Epstein by name and description, reveals that Arden met Epstein in April 1997 and was told by a friend that he would get her work with the Victoria & Secret's catalog.
The name of that friend is taken from the report.
Epstein first needed a test shoot of the model and Arden told an officer at the Santa Monica police that she was so excited about the prospect that she went and bought Victoria & # 39; s Secret lingerie for the assignment.
She then did the shoot, hurried the photos to the Epstein office on Madison Avenue, and a few days later she was told that the meeting was scheduled all that later.
Epstein was barefoot and was wearing jogging pants along with a white shirt with & # 39; USA & # 39; was written when she met him in Shutters, the chic hotel on the ocean.
He asked her to undress twice according to the report, and did it himself the second time by taking off her blouse and skirt.
Epstein * above in 2011) wore sweatpants and no shoes during the & # 39; casting session & # 39;
He then felt her buttocks while pretending to be examining her body, she told the police.
Wexner was informed about what was going on and promised to address the situation – a year before Arden was attacked in a hotel room.
Arden said she had told the police what had happened the next day and returned a week later to file a police report.
Her concern was that he could use this tactic to lure other women, with the pedophile being careful not to recruit models from established agencies.
Victoria & # 39; s Secret casts only models with a large representation, with their annual show featuring models that are almost always from one of the four agencies – IMG, Next, Ford and Elite.
But even then it would be hard to imagine that a man so close to the owner of the company would act as a model scout for such nefarious and illegal reasons.
It is unclear when Wexner ended Epstein's model practice, but it is known that he did not break ties with his pedophile before going to jail.
& # 39; Why would someone become as powerful and successful as a friend of someone like Jeffrey Epstein? & # 39; Mrs. Arden said about Wexner.
& # 39; I don't get it. & # 39;
