Tennessee teens report strong armed robbery at MB hotel

Myrtle Beach, SC - MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Two teenagers claim they were robbed outside of a Myrtle Beach hotel restroom, according to an incident report from Myrtle Beach Police.

Officers were dispatched to the Holiday Pavilion hotel in reference to a strong armed robbery just before midnight on Monday.

Two teens from Tennessee claimed they were approached by a man outside of a hotel restroom, who demanded for one of the teens to hand over "everything he had." One of the teen victims said he purposely dropped his wallet off of the hotel balcony before the suspect could locate it.

The suspect later demanded the second teen victim empty out his pockets, which held a silver cell phone valued at $200. A trio of three other men, according to reports, watched as the suspect made his demands to the teens.

The teens described the main suspect as a heavyset Hispanic male with short, spiked black hair. The teens said he was wearing a white T-shirt and dark plaid shorts at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call the Myrtle Beach Police Department immediately.
