A family visiting the east for a reunion was robbed at gunpoint over the holiday weekend. A victim tells 9 On Your Side it happened early Monday morning at the Double Tree hotel in Rocky Mount.
The victim says she, along with several other family members, were talking outside the hotel around 3:00 AM. She says that's when three people with masks and rifles approached them and told them to give them all their belongings and lay on the ground. The victim says when they took everything, then the suspects took off. No one was injured during the incident.
Police say the suspects got away in a black car, and they are investigating.
