The woman who claimed she was tied up and robbed in a Cincinnati Reds pitcher’s hotel room at the Omni William Penn is now facing charges.
Claudia Manrique, 26, claims she was the target of a thief who ransacked the room when she wouldn’t give up the valuables. KDKA-TV has learned the woman was indeed targeted, but she may not be an innocent victim like she claimed.
Claudia Manrique was escorted out of the Pittsburgh Police Zone 2 station Wednesday evening by a man police said was her husband. She had a blanket over her head and did not respond to questions from KDKA’s Kym Gable.
