A 44-year-old Abbeville, Ala. man was pistol-whipped and his 2007 Honda Accord was stolen Wednesday during a Georgian Motel armed robbery that also involved a Columbus victim, authorities said.
The man is in good condition after being treated on the scene for an abrasion near his forehead. The 35-year-old Columbus woman was not harmed in the 5:30 a.m. incident, Columbus police said.
Officials have yet to identify the two gunmen, but they were both described as short-haired black men in their 20s. Last seen in red sweatshirts, the men have a slim build, according to the report.
At 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, an official was called to the Georgian Motel at 3461 Victory Drive in reference to the armed robbery.

The officer was told that the suspects were carrying a total of four pistols and hit the man on the back of the head with one of the weapons.
The robbers also stole the man's silver 2007 Honda Accord, which has a 2014 Georgia tag that reads "BCK2066." The car is valued at $3,000, police said in the report. It's unclear if anything was taken from the woman.
The case remains under investigation.
