A 48-year-old Woodland man was assaulted in his motel room early Saturday when a man pushed open the door of the room and robbed him at gunpoint, Woodland police said today.

Lopez was punched and hit with a handgun, police said, and the suspect took his wallet, which contained about $400.
The suspect, who fled on foot across Main Street, was described as Hispanic, in his mid-20s, about 5-foot-9, 150 lbs with short lack hair and brown eyes. He wore a large white or tan T-shirt and blue, baggy pants.
