Tulsa Police arrested a man they say attacked a woman with a claw hammer at motel Thursday evening, June 13. The woman was seriously injured, records show.

Officers said when they got to the Oasis Motel at 9303 E. 11th St. they could hear screams and sounds of a scuffle in the motel room. The officer saw Tierra-Blanca standing over the woman with the hammer raised, according to police.
