NEW YORK — A luxurious New York City hotel where an Egyptian businessman is accused of sexually abusing a housekeeper has agreed to equip all room attendants with panic buttons.

The agreement was reached between The Pierre hotel and the New York Hotel & Motel Trades Council, The Wall Street Journal says.

The alarms will be made available as soon as a system can be put in place, Pierre spokeswoman Nora Walsh says.

Mahmoud Abdel Salam Omar, an executive and the former chairman of a major Egyptian bank, is charged with sexual abuse and forcible touching of a housekeeper at the Manhattan hotel. He's being held on $25,000 bail.

His lawyer, Liz Beal, told the court her client "adamantly denies the charges against him."
