ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A woman faced a judge on Saturday after attacking two repo men.
The woman is Cassandra Gore, the human resources director at the Hotel Cascada.
Last month, two repo men showed up to the Hotel Cascada on Carlisle and I-40 to repossess Gore’s BMW.
Police believe she wasn’t going to give up her BMW to the repo man without a fight. Witnesses say when she came outside, things escalated quickly. Police say Gore started punching and scratching the repo man in the face.
When he showed her the repo paperwork the man says Gore ripped them up, put them in her purse and told him he didn’t have paperwork anymore.
That’s when the man says Gore shoved him out of the way to get in her car. He says she pinned him between the wall and her car trying to leave.
The BMW already had chains connected to a tow truck, but she was able to reverse until they fell off.
The repo man says Gore almost hit him as she sped off from the parking lot.
Gore told police she wanted to press charges against the repo men for assault but witnesses say she was the one hitting him.
KRQE News 13 checked with the hotel and Gore is still employed there.
Police confirmed with the credit company that they’ve been trying to repossess her car since she hasn’t made payments since 2013. They say Gore appears to be hiding the BMW.
