BOLINGBROOK – Two women told police they were robbed by two men in their hotel room Sunday night.

Lt. Mike Rompa said the victims called police at 9:17 p.m. to the Ramada Inn on South Bolingbrook Drive where they had rented a room. Rompa said the women invited an acquaintance, Cambren K. Powell, 21, to visit, but Powell arrived with another man who took out a pistol and demanded money.

Rompa said the handgun may have been a BB gun. The men left after allegedly taking a cell phone and the victims called police.

The victims, a 30-year-old Bolingbrook woman and a 17-year-old Bolingbrook woman, were not injured.

Powell was later found in the 300 block of Woodcreek Drive and identified by the victims, Rompa said. The other suspect remained at-large Monday.

Powell, of the 10S600 block of Lilac Lane, was arrested and booked into the county jail on charge of robbery.
