WASHINGTON, N.C. -

We worked early Thursday morning to get information from authorities on a reported armed robbery at the Days Inn Hotel in the town of Washington, on Carolina Ave.

We called the Days Inn Hotel. A hotel employee tells us she and a friend were held up by two men, one armed with a knife, another with a gun. The incident was reported around 2:20 a.m.

The employee did not want to give her name but claims the suspects stole money before running from the scene.

Through the night we've made phone calls to The Washington Police Department. No one has returned our calls.
