New York, May 24 (IANS) The semen of former managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) Dominique Strauss-Kahn was found on the shirt of a hotel maid who alleges he tried to rape her, according to media reports.

DNA taken from Strauss-Kahn matched genetic material found on the shirt of the 32-year-old chambermaid who has alleged the former IMF chief attacked her, tore at her clothes and tried to force her to perform oral sex in his hotel room May 14, the New York Daily News said, citing sources.

Investigators are still waiting for the lab results of carpet samples and swabs taken from the hotel sink. The maid reportedly spit in the sink after she told hotel security that she had been attacked.

The test results were consistent with what law enforcement officials have said about the account provided by the woman, the New York Times said, citing a person briefed in the matter.

They are also consistent with what Strauss-Kahn’s lawyers have suggested would be his defence - that a sexual encounter had indeed occurred when she came to clean his room at the Sofitel New York May 14, but that it was consensual, it said.

Meanwhile, the New York Post reported that Strauss-Kahn attempted to lure two attractive hotel employees to his $3,000-a-night hotel suite and later put the moves on an Air France flight attendant following his alleged sexual assault on a maid.

“What a nice ass!” he said to the attendant, using the lewd French expression “Quel beau cul!” as she prepared the business-class cabin for takeoff last Saturday.
