East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s detectives are looking for two men suspected of armed robbery at the Hampton Inn & Suites last week.
At about 1:10 a.m. June 2, two unknown black males armed with handguns knocked on the door of a hotel room belonging to two women, who detectives believe arranged to have the men meet them at the hotel, said Casey Rayborn Hicks, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Office.
When the women opened the door, the men entered brandishing the pistols and stole cash, cellphones and tablets belonging to both of the victims, Hicks said. The men bound the victims’ hands and feet before leaving the room.
Hicks said the robbers possibly fled the hotel, at 11271 Reiger Road, in a grey or tan colored pickup truck.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the robbery may contact the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office at (225) 389-5000 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at (225) 344-7867.
