SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO -- Three women were punched and carjacked in a motel parking lot early Sunday by a man one of them met in a Hayward restaurant, police said.

The assailant assaulted each of the South San Francisco women as they exited a blue 2000 Audi A6 around 3:30 a.m. in the lot of a hotel on the 100 block of Mitchell Avenue. He grabbed the keys and then made off with the car while the women ran to a nearby restaurant for help, said South San Francisco police. No arrests have been made.

One of the women met the suspect at a Hayward restaurant and then made plans to meet up with him at a San Francisco night club, police said. Later, the suspect followed the women from the night club to Mitchell Avenue, where "they planned to share a hotel room," police said.

The assailant was a white man about 6 feet tall who looked like he weighed 150 pounds and appeared to be in his 20s, police said. His long dark hair was in a pony tail, he had dark eyes and wore a white-striped black dress shirt and blue jeans. He may have a Hayward-related tattoo on his chest or shoulder. The suspect told the women his name was Jason, but preferred to be called Jesus.

The stolen Audi had California license plate no. 6SNR390.
