YUMA, Ariz. (KSWT News 13) - Another armed robbery in Yuma.
This time robbers hit up a Ramada Inn.
This is the third armed robbery reported in the last three days.
Police tell us two men, one wearing a Halloween-type mask of an old man and the other wearing a bandana to cover his face, walked into the Ramada Inn, pointed a gun at the front desk clerk, forced him to lay on the floor, stole money and then took off running.
Hotel guest Alberto Carrera tells KSWT News 13 "I don't want to walk into a middle of a robbery with somebody holding a gun."
Carrera says he had no idea armed robbers hit up the same hotel where he stayed at last night.
The contractor, who works periodically in Yuma, says he's now picking up, checking out, and moving on. He says he is not really scared, but concerned.
To protect himself he tells KSWT News 13 he will "keep an eye out," or "even carry a gun."
This isn't the first time this Ramada Inn has been hit up by armed robbers.
In the last year, according to KSWT News 13 reports, thugs have robbed the same Ramada three times.
First in January of 2012, then two months later in March and now again Monday night.
Carrera says he'd like to see more security measures taken to keep a watchful eye on everyone. He says, "I think something should be done not just by the police department but by the hotel itself. Security. More security, more cameras."
Right now, the robbers are still on the loose.
Meanwhile, police continue to investigating this latest armed robbery. Anyone with information is asked to call 78-Crime. Your call will remain anonymous.
