PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Providence police say a Colorado man was grazed by a bullet after a hotel tryst took a dangerous turn.
Police arrived at the Biltmore Hotel early Wednesday to investigate a possible sexual assault. The Colorado man said he and a male friend had been in his room with a woman they met at the hotel bar. Following what police termed ‘‘some type of sexual activity’’ the woman telephoned another woman to join them.
Instead, an armed man arrived and ordered the men to the ground. The Colorado man disarmed the assailant but not before a bullet grazed his shoulder. Police say the assailant and the woman chased the man before fleeing the Biltmore. As she left the woman reportedly yelled that someone had tried to rape her.
Police are investigating.
