Couple reports armed robbery Saturday night

Jonesboro police are searching for suspects who attacked a couple at their motel room Saturday night.

According to a police report filed on Sunday, Officer Bryan Davis responded to Andy's Frozen Custard in reference to an armed robbery. When Davis arrived on the scene, he talked to a woman who was crying so much her makeup was running. Her husband was also at the business.

The husband told Davis that a man he knew had pistol whipped him and took his money at Jamie Bee motel. The husband said the suspect knocked on his motel room door. When the husband opened the door, the suspect hit him with a pistol and stormed into the room.

While in the room, the suspect held the couple at gunpoint and took their cell phones and money. The couple said the suspects got into a dark Ford Expedition when they left the motel.

Davis then searched the motel room and was “unable to locate any evidence of value to be processed and the room looked to be relatively undisturbed.”

No arrests have been made.
