Man robbed, lured by woman at San Diego Hard Rock hotel

SAN DIEGO - A man visiting San Diego for a convention was robbed Wednesday night after being lured by a woman.

The tourist, Mike Kuryla, said he went back to his downtown Hard Rock hotel room with a woman he met near the CVS drugstore. When he and the woman arrived to his 10th floor hotel room, another man attacked him with mace and took his money around 11 p.m., according to the victim.

Some hotel guests had trouble breathing because of the mace and were evacuated from the 10th floor. One hotel guest was also transported to a hospital for further treatment, said authorities.

No other information—including details on the couple who robbed Kuryla—was immediately available.
