CICERO - Two guests at a motel were robbed by a woman who barged her way into their room at 3:30 p.m. Sunday, according to a Cicero Police Department report.

Police said the victims were in their room at the Cindy Lyn Motel, 5029 W. Ogden Ave., when they answered a knock at the door.

The woman then fled in in an unknown direction.

The victims told police they waited in the room for an hour then left and went to a nearby friend's house to report the robbery to police.
