Robbery at hotel

On 1/7/2013 Fife Officers responded to a hotel in the 3100 block of Pacific Hwy E. for a robbery call.  Officers arrived and found a 30 year old male who had been sprayed in the face with pepper spray.  He told officers that he had arranged for a female who was posting on backpage.com as an escort, to come to his room to give him a massage.  When the female arrived, she and the victim agreed to a price for the massage and she excused herself to go to the bathroom.  After a short time, a male suspect began knocking on the door to the hotel room and when the victim opened the door, the male attempted to force his way inside the room.  At the same time, the female exited the bathroom and began spraying the victim in the face with pepper spray.  The victim reported that the female suspect stole his money from his wallet and she and the male suspect ran to a nearby vehicle and fled the area. 

Fife Detectives were able to track the female down and arrest her.  She was booked into the Pierce County Jail for 2nd degree robbery.
