Suspects Shot Victim in Hotel Room: Police

SDPD

Composite sketches of the suspects were released Friday.

San Diego Police Department detectives are searching for three suspects who allegedly robbed and assaulted a victim at gunpoint inside of a Mission Valley hotel room last month.

According to police, the assault happened on November 21 at around 5 a.m. at the Mission Valley Resort located at 875 Hotel Circle South.

An adult male victim had called several acquaintances to meet him at the hotel, including a woman known as “Jewell,” police said.

Jewell arrived at the man’s hotel room to hang out and told the victim her sister was on her way over too. Minutes later, police said Jewell walked over to the door and two unknown male suspects entered the hotel room.

One of the men pulled a handgun out and put the weapon in the victim’s face, demanding his money and property. Jewell told the victim to cooperate.

Police said the victim refused and a struggle ensued between the two men. During their fight, the victim was shot by the suspect.

Jewell and the two other male suspects then fled the hotel in a dark-colored, two-door compact car, possibly a Honda.

The victim was treated at a hospital and is expected to recover.

On Friday, SDPD investigators released composite sketches of both Jewell and the male suspect who shot the victim.

Detectives describe the woman as a white female, approximately 50 to 60 years old, 5-foot-8 with a heavy build. She has bleached reddish hair and light green eyes.

The male suspect is described as Hispanic, between 23 and 27 years old, 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-5, with a slender build. He has black hair, brown eyes and slight facial hair stubble.

The third suspect is described as a white male, between 30 to 35 years old, 6-foot, with a heavy/fat build.

Police are asking anyone with information on this case to contact the SDPD at (619) 692-4820 or Crims Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
