A vicious assault against a Holbrook Hotel employee is under investigation. Captain Rex Marks says Officer responded to the Hotel late Friday night to assist the fire department on a medical call. They found 21 year old Thomas Dixon of Grass Valley going out the back door to the hotel. Dixon was detained when it was learned one person had been seriously hurt. The Captain says the victim was found unconscious in a hall way.
“Of course, the investigation determined that at least one person had been a victim of an assault which occurred at that location in which there had been significant injury to that individual.”
The incident may have happened because Dixon was allegedly refused service because of his level of intoxication. The suspect was found to be four times the limit of intoxication. The victim was taken to Sierra Nevada Hospital for treatment for treatment of facial and head injuries.
