Several similar incidents have occurred in the area of the Hotel Del Rey, a night (and day) spot well-known by locals and foreigners as a place for gambling and women offering sexual services in exchange for payment.

The area around the hotel is commonly known as “Gringo Gulch”, an area that includes, in addition to the Del Rey hotel, Key Largo, bars and casinos catering to San Jose’s seedier side of night life.
