A motel maid said Sunday that she was assaulted by two women claiming she stolen their money.
The 31-year-old maid at the Best Western on Park West Drive said she found a wallet in one of the rooms at about noon and ran it to the lobby, where she gave it to the 44-year-old owner. The maid said she went back to the motel room, where she was confronted by the woman and her 55-year-old sister about stealing money from the wallet.
The maid said she told the women she didn’t have their money and only had $46. She said the women took $40 from her and threw her cell phone and remaining $6 on the floor. The maid said she refused when the women demanded she take off her clothes. They searched her pockets again and told the maid to take off her shoes.
While in the hotel hallway, the women pulled off the maid’s shirt and bra. The maid said one of the women scratched her arm and twisted it while the other tried to pull her pants down. The maid said she screamed for help and the women took her $40 and said they had their money too.
The women left when people started coming out into the hallway. The maid had a small scratch and minor bruises on her arm.
The 44-year-old woman told deputies that she got to the lobby of the hotel and realized her wallet was missing. She said the maid brought the wallet to her, but it was missing $741. The woman and her sister went back to the room, where they confronted the maid and demanded their money back.
The woman said she and her sister found $6 in the maid’s pocket and her missing money in the maid’s bra.
No one was charged in the incident.
