NEW STANTON (KDKA) — State police in Greensburg are investigating a violent robbery overnight at the Days Inn in New Stanton.

Four suspects, including one woman, broke into a room early Thursday morning and robbed five men whose ages ranged between 20 and 50.

The men were forced into a bathroom and duct taped. The victims eventually freed themselves and ran to the lobby for help.

One of the suspects had a small pistol. Two others had knives. They got away in a Chevy Cavalier.

The suspects are believed to be in their 20s.

A guest who was a few doors down, Randy Hartzfeld, of Punxsutawney, said he was awakened around 3 a.m. by a knock on the door by state police asking him if he saw or heard anything suspicious.
