OKLAHOMA CITY - A violent robbery at a local motel leaves three victims bruised and bloodied.

Now police are asking for the public's help catching the men responsible.

It all started when a woman, who had taken her dog for a walk, came under attack by two robbery suspects.

"They assaulted her and knocked her down," said Oklahoma City police Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow. "They choked her. Obviously, it was a very scary and dangerous situation for that woman."

Two other guests staying in nearby rooms heard the commotion and tried to help.

However, they were assaulted as well.

The second victim, a Tulsa businessman, had been staying on the sixth floor of the motel and suffered a broken nose and two broken teeth after hearing another woman under attack in the hall.

The victim said, "He just forearmed me right in the face and knocked me down. He knocked me out."

A third woman opened her door and also got shoved to the ground, hitting her head on the table.

The men made off with the victim's credit card and have not been apprehended by police.

However, officers have released surveillance video of two men who they say used one of the victim's stolen credit cards.

Oklahoma City police aren't officially naming the men as suspects in the robbery, but the pair are wanted for questioning.

Anyone with information on the men seen in the video is asked to contact Crimestoppers. allegedthieves
