Man assaults hotel employee in Menlo Park

Woman injured Saturday in brazen attack at Best Western Hotel

Police are looking for a man in connection with an assault on a hotel employee as she was checking rooms at about 2:15 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Best Western Hotel at 15 El Camino Real in Menlo Park.

The employee "sustained non-life threatening injuries" in the struggle, and managed to get to a phone in the hotel room, at which point the man fled, said Nicole Acker, spokesperson for the Menlo Park Police Department.

The hotel, at the border with Santa Clara County, is just north of the bridge across San Francisquito Creek.

The victim described the man as black and about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a slender build. He wore dark jeans, a black waist-length zip-up jacket over a long-sleeve light blue shirt, and a black baseball cap, police said. He had covered his face with a black ski mask and wore black fabric gloves, according to police.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 650-330-6300 and ask for the investigations unit or Officer Felicia Byars, or call the anonymous tip line at 650-330-6395.
