When a San Francisco man thought an alleged woman of the night stole from him he took matters into his own hands but he ended up paying the price.
David Patrick Omara, 46, was arrested early Thursday morning after binding and gagging a 20-year-old woman he believed stole an iPad and cash from him in a previous sexual encounter that occurred Tuesday, South San Francisco police said.
Omara was arrested at the Travelodge in the 300 block of South Airport Boulevard in South San Francisco about 12:30 a.m. after hotel management reported a woman screaming, police said.
When police arrived they found the woman gagged and bound with duct tape, police said. Police freed the woman and transported her to the hospital.
Omara was arrested on charges of false imprisonment, burglary, terrorist threats and battery resulting in serious bodily injury and booked into County Jail.
