Married pair arrested in hotel robbery case

THOUSAND OAKS – A Florida couple in their 20s allegedly lured a man to a Thousand Oaks hotel room with the prospect of female companionship but instead battered him and stole his money, authorities said.

The scenario unfolded around 9:15 pm on Dec. 24 – Christmas Eve – with the married couple eventually arrested last month in Northern California, according to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff’s Office is contracted to provide police services in Thousand Oaks.

The man and woman, both 22-year-old Miami residents, had arranged the hotel-room meeting with a 69-year-old Long Beach man. The victim reportedly met the female suspect on an internet site where men meet women who are “interested in finding someone to provide them financial support,” according to the sheriff’s account.
