Alexandria police were dispatched to Alexandria Inn, 1212 MacArthur Drive, just after midnight in reference to an armed robbery.A 49-year-old Pollock woman told police that earlier Sunday she was invited to a room by a female friend.
At around 11 p.m. Sunday, she drove to a store and returned to find another woman she only knows as “Hot Pants” in the room, who stated the victim owed her money, according to an Alexandria police report.
An argument ensued in which “Hot Pants” hit the victim in the back of the head with the room’s telephone, the report states.
The victim picked up an alarm clock and held it up to keep “Hot Pants” off her and the suspect then picked up the victim’s purse off the dresser and left, the report states.
The victim told police she did not call authorities because she did not have any money or anything of value in the purse.
The victim then sought refuge in another room with a male acquaintance and about 12:25 a.m. two men she knows as “Peanut” and “Fisher” came to the door with her purse and forced their way into the room, the report states.
“Peanut” grabbed the 51-year-old Cordova, Tenn., man’s wallet off the night stand and both suspects fled in a green car driven by “Hot Pants,” the report states.
The 51-year-old victim told police he was asleep when awakened by a male suspect who ran into the room and grabbed his wallet, the report states.
The male victim gave chase and while running across the parking lot the suspect turned around and punched him in the nose, causing his nose to bleed, the report states.
The male victim was holding a bloody rag to his nose while speaking to police, the report states, but refused medical attention.
Police also observed dried blood on the back of the female victim’s hair where she told police “Hot Pants” had struck her with the telephone, the report states, adding she also refused medical attention.
Police canvassed the area for suspects but were unable to locate them, the report states.
