Woman assaulted and robbed of pet monkey
Kate Porras, Police Information Coordinator for the Grand Junction Police Department, said, "She and this suspect had agreed to meet in the parking lot of the hotel at about at 6 o' clock this morning to make the transaction. Obviously, he decided he had other plans for her."But wait, there's more. Here's the suspect description.
The woman was selling her pet monkey, however the suspect had no intention of buying it.
"When he and she met he ended up pepper spraying her, grabbing the monkey which was in a carrier at the time and then taking off," Porras said.
The woman described the suspect as a middle-eastern male, 35 to 40 years old, 5’5″ tall, thin build with a short beard. He was wearing glasses, a blue shirt and possibly a vest. (emphasis added)Could this be some sort of terrorist operation right here in Grand Junction?
