Toledo woman beaten at Telegraph Rd. motel

A Toledo woman was hospitalized yesterday after she was beaten by a man at the Sunset Motel, 5452 Telegraph Rd., police said.

Nicole R. Crider, 23, was in serious condition at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center.

Ms. Crider went to the motel Saturday night to avoid contact with the man, who found her about 3:30 a.m. yesterday. The man started to argue with the victim and hit her in the face and kicked her in the chest and abdomen. When Ms. Crider tried to call for help, the man hit her in the head with the phone receiver, police said.

The man helped the victim into the shower, where he pushed her head into the shower wall and tried to drown her. He hit her in the head with a bottle and tried to reopen a stab wound she sustained a few weeks ago.

The man also threatened to kill the victim before leaving the motel about 7 a.m., police said.
