Motel worker punched by robbery suspect

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A motel worker is recovering Tuesday morning after being violently assaulted by a masked robber.

It happened shortly before 9 p.m. Monday at the Motel 6 on 160 Calle Primera in San Ysidro.

Police say the suspect walked into the lobby waving a gun and demanding money from a woman at the front desk. He apparently took the entire register, and then went for the woman's purse.

When she tried to fight back, he punched her in the face, and threatened to kill her before getting away in a dark-colored Dodge Charger.

The suspect is described as a black man, about 5 feet 8 inches, with a stocky build.

If you have any information, call police.
