Man Pepper-Sprays Woman, Steals Her Monkey
Colorado Police may still be looking for a man, who allegedly pepper-sprayed a woman in the face and then stole her pet monkey… OUCH!
According to Grand Junction Police Department, the woman who traveled from Missouri to Colorado last week Monday to sell her black cap capuchin primate met the suspect in the parking lot of a La Quinte Inn motel after numerous online conversations text messages and phone calls.
The man then preceded to spray the woman in the face, grabbed her carrier containing the monkey and fled the scene on foot.
The woman whose injuries weren’t considered life threatening, has not been charged with illegal ownership of a primate in the state of Colorado, however the suspect will face charges of robbery, theft and assault if found and convicted.
