State police are looking for two suspects in the armed robbery of a woman staying at an Ogletown-area motel.

It happened a little before 10:30 a.m. Thursday morning at the Econo Lodge just off Route 273, where police say the victim answered a knock on the door of her motel room and let two inside.

Troopers say one of the men pulled a gun on the victim and the suspects bound her hands and feet with duct tape and put a pillow case on her head.

The suspects searched the room and left with jewelry and cash and victim was not injured.

Police describe the first suspect as being 6'1 with a thin build and full beard wearing a white hoodie. The second is described as being 5'11 with an average build and wearing a gray hoodie.

Anyone with information on the robbery can contact State Police or CrimeStoppers.
