Masked robbers reportedly threaten to shoot two Columbus women

Two 25-year-old women were reportedly robbed at gunpoint by four masked men Thursday at the Columbus Days Inn hotel in the 3400 block of Macon Road, according the Columbus Police Department.

Though the victims were not injured at the time of the offense, which happened about 5:08 a.m., reports show.

The suspects allegedly entered the south door of a hotel room, pointed a pistol at the women and demanded they give up their belongings with a threat to shoot them if they did not, police said.

Reports show that victim was stripped of her $400 Michael Kors handbag, $117 Michael Kors wallet and assorted house and vehicle keys worth an unspecified amount. The men robbed the second woman of her $70 Boost Mobile cell phone and $200, officials said in a report.

Officers say all four armed robbers were described as black men between 5 feet 8 inches tall and 5 feet 10 inches tall. They were estimated to be between the ages of 18 and 25 with a slim build, and their faces were covered by masks or bandanas at the time of the alleged crime, police said in a report.

Records show that the two of the attackers were seen wearing all dark clothes. Another suspect was seen wearing a white top and dark pants, while the other wore a dark top and light-colored pants, the women told police.

The suspects were allegedly in a silver Chevrolet Impala with stock wheels and tires, officials said. Estimated to have been made between 2008 and 2010, the vehicle did not have any tint on its windows, reports show.

The Columbus Police Department's Robbery and Assault continues to follow up on the case.
