JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- Three teenagers are under arrest, accused of robbing a tourist inside a beaches hotel.
It happened Monday night at the Quality Inn and Suites on 1st Street.
Surveillance video shows three teenagers casing the hallway. It shows a man approach the door of his hotel room. Then it shows the teenagers follow him inside.
The victim was tourist, Anthony Wisnieski from Virginia. Action News caught up with him on the phone. He said, "Basically, as soon as I walked through the door, there was like a tap on the door and they were rushing right in, and pulled three guns out, and stuck them in my forehead. Threw me to the ground."
He said the teenagers robbed him, then ran away. And he says he had seen the teenagers earlier Monday night. He said his travel mate brought them back to their room. He said he asked them to leave, then went to grab a bite to eat. When he got back to the hotel, he says he was jumped.
"They sat and waited for me, I guess," said Wisnieski.
Officer Stefanie Shaughnessy with the Jacksonville Beach Police Department said, "They took approximately $1000 cash from the victim, took his wallet, cell phone, and his keys.
She also said it didn't take long for cops to catch up with the teenagers. They made a run for it, but they didn't go far. With a thousand dollars in their pockets, she said they went to the McDonalds less than a mile away.
"Yeah, how stupid is that?," said Wisnieski.
Officer Shaughnessy said, "All three of them were armed with handguns."
Officers confiscated the guns and arrested the teen suspects. They are Jeremy Wright, 19, and Travis Couser, 18. A 17-year-old was also arrested, but he's not being identified because of his age.
Right now, all three teenagers face several charges including home invasion and resisting arrest.
The good news is no one was hurt. And the victim says he got his money back. Police are now checking to see if the guns involved in this crime have been involved in any other crimes.
