Oregon motel guest clubbed by visitor

MEDFORD, Ore. — A man who was staying at a Medford motel is the intensive care unit at a local hospital after police say he was clubbed several times by a visitor.

Lt. Mike Budreau said Thursday that officers found the 44-year-old victim unconscious and suffering from head injuries.

Witnesses said the man was in his room when the victim arrived wearing dark clothing and a red bandanna that covered his face.

Besides clubbing the man, the visitor stole items from the victim as well as a woman who was in the room but not hurt.

Budreau says the crime might be drug-related.
