Police Blotter: Woman Flees From Kinky Video Shoot At Local Motel; Burglars Brave Razor Wire For Ice Cream Treat

Monday, August 4, 2014

A man told police a woman who had agreed to take $2,000 in exchange for taking part in an explicit video in which her head would be shaved took off with the cash before the cameras rolled.

Daniel Robertson said the woman had answered a Craigslist ad and he had picked her up at the bus station on Airport Road.

He said they went to LaQuinta Inn on W. 21st Street and she signed a contract and was given the money.

He said she then showered. However, she afterward apparently became frightened and bolted from the room, leaving her bags behind. He said the bags contained only some clothing and $2 in cash. There was no ID for the woman in the bags.

He said the woman bit him on the hand when he tried to stop her. Police said he had several marks on his hand.

Police said Robertson "was not forthcoming on what he had done to frighten her."

He said the film was intended for a fetish website and was to be "sexual in nature."

Police concluded that the woman "may not have been told the full extent of what he wanted from her."
