- Police are investigating an armed robbery that took place Saturday morning inside Chicago’s Congress Plaza Hotel.
At approximately 8:30 a.m., two male suspects followed one of the victims to his hotel room in the 500 block of South Michigan Avenue and forced their way inside, according to Chicago police.
Three men, each 20-years old, and two women, age 19 and 23, were robbed at gunpoint, according to investigators. The suspects stole the victims’ cell phones, wallets, purses and cash.
The two suspects then fled the room and the victims alerted hotel security who encountered the suspects in the lobby, according to police. After a brief chase, the two suspects escaped through the front entrance of the hotel.
Amazingly, no descriptions in the NBC story, but this can't be good for the tourist trade.
