North County masseuse tied to table, robbed by clients

CARLSBAD, Calif. -- Police say a massage therapist's clients held her at gunpoint, tied her to the massage table and robbed her at her Carlsbad home late Tuesday night.

The clients -- a man and a woman who called themselves "Michael" and "Shayla" -- arrived at the woman's home on Cazadero Drive just before 10 p.m., Carlsbad Police Department said.

Once inside, the man flashed a black handgun and ordered the masseuse to lie down on the massage table. The duo tied the victim to the table, then stole cash and the keys to her black and blue 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander, which they drove off in, CPD said.

The woman told police the couple threatened to kill her if she screamed.

The robbers had not been arrested as of Wednesday morning. The man was described as a black man with long, black, braided hair and a tattoo of numbers on his neck. A detailed description of the woman was not available.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of the suspects or the SUV was asked to call Carlsbad police at 760-931-2197.
