Po­lice ar­res­ted one gun­man but are search­ing for two more who robbed two wo­men in­side a North­east motel room last month. The hol­dup oc­curred on Oct. 28 at the Roosevelt Mo­tor Inn, 7600 Roosevelt Blvd. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, two wo­men ages 19 and 21 heard a knock at their door at about 2 a.m. and opened it. The rob­bers entered the room, bran­dished hand­guns and de­man­ded the vic­tims’ valu­ables.

The crooks made off with cell phones, cash and a laptop com­puter. Sur­veil­lance video showed one of the rob­bers en­ter­ing a red 1999 Dodge Dakota pickup truck with PA tag YVS-8193. Po­lice ar­res­ted one of the al­leged rob­bers, Jonath­an Al­leyene, 25, of the 300 block of S. 43rd St.

Two oth­er rob­bers re­main uniden­ti­fied. One was de­scribed as black, about 25 years old, about 6 feet tall and thin. He had a mous­tache and beard and wore a blue/gray base­ball cap, dark blue jeans and a blue hooded sweat­shirt. He was armed with a hand­gun.

The oth­er un­known rob­ber was de­scribed as black with a red beard and wear­ing blue jeans, a bur­gundy hat and a sweat­er.
