Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two men who forced their way into a motel room and robbed a man at gunpoint.

On May 28, a 27-year-old male left his motel room on the 7600 block of Roosevelt Boulevard. He was met by two black males in the hallway, one of whom held a gun to his face and forced him back into his room.

After claiming money, car keys and the victim’s cell phone, the two men escaped in the victim’s blue Ford Taurus.

Surveillance video obtained by police shows the two men in the hallway of the motel wearing gray hooded sweatshirts. One of the crooks lowered his hood on camera.
