Two women and a man told police that they were robbed of cash at gunpoint when two men forced their way inside their Myrtle Beach motel room, according to a police report.
The victims, ages 21 and 20, called police at about 11:30 p.m. Thursday to report the robbery at their room at 2610 N. Ocean Blvd., police said.
The victims told police they were expected another friend to arrive at the room, so when someone knocked on the door they opened it to two men, one armed with a gun, who forced their way inside, according to the report. The victims said the peep hole in the door was broken.
The victims said the men ransacked the room looking for cash and they estimated the men took $500 or $600 from them, according to the report. The victims were forced into the bathroom and the men wiped down the things they touched in the room.
The victims told police that the men threatened to kill them if they reported the robbery to the police, according to the report. One of the female victims told police one of the robbers grabbed her inappropriately during the incident.
