Raymond Brau, of Sacramento, reportedly met the victim some two months on the popular social networking website and then as the relationship progressed the two began to see each other.
Police say the attack occurred after the second meeting at the Stone Villa Inn located in Antioch.
The woman's face was punched repeatedly after Brau confronted her about the number of men on her friend's list.
She suffered a broken nose and a bloody face.
Brau was arrested some time later after he contacted the hotel regarding a bill that had appeared on his credit card.
According to The San Jose Mercury News:
"Three days later, Brau called the hotel after finding out that his credit card had been charged for property damage caused during the fight, Sgt. Diane Aguinaga said. Some of that damage included a broken lamp and blood spattered throughout the room. The phone call soon turned threatening.It continues:
"He threatened to slit her throat if (the clerk) did not remove the charge," Aguinaga said, "or if she called police."Obviously the hotel employee didn't listen as he quickly contacted police who in turn arrested the alleged woman beating scumbag on Monday.
