A woman was assaulted and robbed of cash and jewelry in her West Bethlehem apartment on Saturday afternoon, according to city police.
The assault and robbery took place at the Landings apartments on Valley Park South at about 4:30 p.m., police said.
The woman said she allowed her assailant—another woman she didn’t know—into the apartment because she said she was having car trouble, according to The Express Times.
But after the assailant made a few telephone calls, she turned on her host and pepper-sprayed her and hit her with a vase before making off with cash and jewelry, the newspaper said. The victim was not seriously hurt.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Bethlehem police at 610-865-7187.
