TINICUM TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) – Tinicum Township police are investigating an armed robbery at a Comfort Inn involving a prostitute and a “John.”

The robbery occurred on May 2, 2013 between 5:50 and 10:30 p.m.

Police say a prostitute accepted a date and once she was let into the room, the suspects detained her with duct tape and held her at knife and gun point.

When the “John” arrived, he was also secured with duct tape.

The suspects then tried to have the “John” send money grams and attempted to get access to his debit cards but were unsuccessful.

The suspects, however, kept the two victims gagged and tied up for hours. One of the suspects, a female, also tried to lure more Johns into the hotel room.

All three suspects wore ski masks and gloves.

If you have any information about this crime or these suspects, please contact police at 610-521-3830.
