A former general manager of the Grand Hyatt Tokyo is facing arrest over his suspected sexual assault on a female customer in a bathroom at the upscale hotel in central Tokyo in May, police sources said Tuesday.

But Antonio Alvarez, a 45-year-old Spaniard who assumed the top post last December, left Japan in early August after quitting the hotel in the upscale Roppongi district. The Metropolitan Police Department has obtained an arrest warrant and will take him into custody if he re-enters Japan, the sources said.
