Newport News, Va. – A man was robbed and injured in a room at the Newport News Inn late Monday night, according to Newport News Police.

Shortly after he let the woman inside, he heard another knock at the door. Two men armed with guns came inside the room and began to assault him. Both men and the woman then searched the man’s pockets and took the victim’s wallet, cell phone and an undisclosed amount of money.

The victim suffered a laceration to his face and what appeared to be a broken nose. He was taken to an area hospital by medics.

Anyone with information that could help police find the suspects are asked to call the Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP.
