According to the reports:
Two men wearing ski masks kicked open a door at the Budget Host Inn, 851 Cass-White Road, around 9 p.m. and asked the five occupants “Where are the pills?”
When the occupants told them they didn’t have any pills, one of the robbers grabbed a man, threw him against the wall and put a gun to his head.
The robbers asked for all their money
The victims told the robbers that the police were in the next room and they ran.
