The victim reported to police that two females invited him up to their room, when two males with handguns exited the bathroom in the motel room. The victim says the suspects then held the gun to his head and stole his belongings, including his wallet, credit cards, identification, and about $140.

The police report states that police also spoke with a witness who worked at the Happy Holiday Motel, who said she witnessed one male and two females run out of the room, after she knocked on the door and threatened to call police.

The male and two females proceeded to leave the motel, but were stopped when police saw the vehicle that fled the scene.  When police searched the vehicle they found two firearms, and some of the victims items that were stolen.  The victim later positively identified the suspects.

The motel employee added that she returned to the room again afterwards, and that time the registered guest answered the door but ignored the witness and stated that he would be right back.
