BOISE -- The Boise Police Department is investigating a robbery that happened at the Hyatt Place Hotel, on North Milwaukee Street, just after 9:00 Monday night.

The victim told officers he was there to meet a woman that he had just met online. But when he and the woman went into the hotel room, another man barged in and robbed him of several hundred dollars cash, the victim said.

That's when the victim left the room and went outside to call police. Police saw a man matching the suspect's description leaving the hotel, and took him into custody along with the woman the victim says he came to meet. Both are from out of state, police say.

Boise Police spokeswoman Lynn Hightower said neither had been arrested or charged with a crime as of 8 a.m. Officers will forward their reports to the Ada County Prosecutor's Office, which will review them for possible charges, she said. The case remains under investigation.
