Two naked prostitutes were robbed of nearly $4,000 by 2 gunmen at a Buckhead hotel. The incident happened on Saturday at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel and Conference Center across the street from Atlanta’s upscale Lenox Square Mall.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the two hookers thought they were meeting a client at the hotel.
The man entered the room and the women discussed prices with him before another man burst into the room 10 minutes later with gun drawn.
The 2 men ordered the hookers to strip naked.
“One suspect would point the gun at the victims while the other went through the victims’ property,” Atlanta Police Dept. spokeswoman Kim Jones told the AJC.
The men took $3,000 from one of the prostitutes and $640 from the other.
After the robbery the naked women pursued the gunmen through the hotel. They stopped as the men ran down the stairs.
Surveillance cameras captured grainy images of the robbers running through nearby Lenox Mall.
A hotel guest spotted the naked women in the hall and called 911. When police arrived, the women admitted they were escorts meeting a prospective client. The women gave officers a phone number they used to contact the man.
Police ask anyone with information about the robbery to call Crime Stoppers at (404) 577-8477. You can remain anonymous.
