SALINAS, Calif. - A Salinas woman has pleaded guilty to second degree robbery outside an adult shop that left one man with a stab wound.
According to the Monterey County District Attorney's Office, Salinas Police responded to reports of a stabbing near the L' Amour adult shop on June 11, 2016. The victim told police he had agreed to meet and pay 22-year-old Shayla Nuki for sex.
The victim and Nuki went inside the adult shop to purchase condoms. Nuki walked out first and was with a male suspect who was waiting for the victim to come out. Once the victim exited the adult shop he demanded the victim's wallet.
"The victim refused to hand over his wallet. As a result, the male suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the victim in the leg. The victim was afraid for his life and handed his wallet over to the male," said the District Attorney's Office.
Nuki and the suspect ran from the scene. The victim was taken to the hospital where he received six staples for the injury to his leg.
The incident was captured on surveillance at the L' Amour adult shop. However the suspect has not been identified.
Nuki will be sentenced on January 9, to two years in state prison.
***Clarification, the victim claimed Nuki was a prostitute but she was never formally charged with prostitution.***
