5 arrested in connection with Bothell hotel robbery

LYNNWOOD, Wash. -- Police arrested five people Wednesday night in connection with an {A href=""}early morning robbery at a Bothell hotel.

It was just after 5 a.m. on Wednesday when two men were attacked and robbed at a Holiday Inn Express on 15th Avenue. Police say the victims checked into the room and were soon joined by a woman.

According to police, three men "acting in concert" with the woman and armed with at least one gun and a baseball bat entered the room and attacked the victims, one of whom was later hospitalized for his injuries.

After robbing the victims, the woman and three men left the hotel, although it is unclear if they did so together, according to police.

Later in the day, officers tracked down a stolen car linked to the robbery at a Lynnwood apartment. When a man and woman left the apartment and got into the car, police pulled them over and arrested them.

Those suspects told officers there were others still inside the apartment, and police executed a search warrant late Wednesday night and arrested three more men.
