A woman was beaten and her hair ripped out Wednesday morning by a robber who attacked her in a motel room near Olive Avenue and Highway 99, police reported.
The assault occurred about 10 a.m. when the man went to the motel room and forced his way inside, Lt. Joe Gomez said. He then demanded that the woman work for him and when she refused, grabbed her hair and began pulling it it out. Gomez said the two struggled on the floor of the motel room, but the woman was able to grab hold of a pair of scissors and force the man from the room.
The suspect was described as black, between 6-feet, two- and six-feet, four-inches tall. He was wearing a black tank top and camouflage shorts and was last seen walking the area.
