AUSTIN — An exotic dancer was allegedly robbed at knifepoint in her Austin home Thursday morning around 3 a.m.

The woman told police she had let in one of her co-workers to use the bathroom early Thursday morning. After using the bathroom, her co-worker, also a woman, asked for a glass of water. She then came out of the kitchen holding a butcher knife and held it to the woman’s throat, demanding she give her all her cash.

The woman directed the assailant to her wallet that was carrying $75 in cash. The woman allegedly took the money and left with the man who had accompanied her.
