Police are searching for an armed duo who held up multiple people staying inside of a Bronx motel at the beginning of the month.

The incident happened at the Paradise Hotel at 2990 Boston Road at about 10:30 a.m. on Monday, February 1; that’s when the two entered room 45 while displaying a gun and began to rob both a 33-year-old man and 18-year-old woman, according to the NYPD.

It was there that they forced the victims to turn over money, jewelry and a cellphone before moving next door to room 44.

They then did the same to a 24-year-old man, making off with a grand total of two iPhones, two Samsung phones, $1,800 in cash, jewelry, and a debit card before fleeing in a red minivan on Lurting Avenue towards Arnow Avenue.

Police released this footage of the suspects.
