Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - A Heyburn man is behind bars charged with Robbery and Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. Authorities believe that Colton R. Johnson 23 was part of a trio who robbed a hotel in the 4100 block of South Broadway Avenue near Interstate 84 in Boise Tuesday afternoon around 4:09 p.m.
Witnesses tell police that a man went to a hotel room to meet the suspects in response to an online advertisement. Shortly after meeting the suspects in the room, the victim was forced to hand over money at knifepoint. The victim says he feared for his life and gave the suspects an undisclosed amount of cash and left the hotel room.
Officers arrived quickly and located the suspects in the parking lot getting into a vehicle apparently attempting to leave the hotel. The suspects were taken into custody without incident.
In addition to Johnson, authorities arrested Marisa N. Andrews, 20 of Rochester, MN, and Ariel C. McDermott, 27 of Bremerton, Washington. Both were charged with robbery.
