According to the police report, she was at the Motel 6 with a man on March 30, 2015. Bryant spoke with a family friend, saying she felt uncomfortable and wanted to be picked up. But the victim never left the motel to meet her friend.

The police report said Rashad Hunt rented the motel room.

On Tuesday, the Sacramento Police Department in California arrested 39-year-old Hunt. The Cleveland Division of the FBI said he will be brought back to Cleveland to face murder charges in Bryant's death.
