The Joplin Police Department continues to investigate an armed robbery inside a Joplin hotel.

The robbers did not take from the hotel but rather from a customer. 

Last night, around 10 p.m., police were called to the Drury Inn & Suites at 3601 S. Range Line Road, after two armed men reportedly entered a person's room and demanded some items.

No injuries were reported.

Police say the suspects were last seen heading south on Range Line Road towards Interstate 44 in a silver Mitsubishi Galant.

"Certainly, if you're confronted in a situation like that where you can't defend yourself or escape that situation, my advice would be to follow the instructions of the suspect so that you don't get hurt," said Sergeant Jared Delzell, Joplin Police Department.

Police say there is no current threat to anyone at the hotel or in the area.
