Atlanta Family Robbed At NYC Hotel; Fugitive Arrested

POSTED: 6:05 am EDT August 2, 2007
UPDATED: 6:14 am EDT August 2, 2007


BOSTON -- A man who New York City police suspect of robbing tourists at Manhattan hotels -- including an eight-year-old girl and her parents from Atlanta -- faces arraignement today in Boston.

State Police Trooper Eric Benson says 22-year-old Ermal Qoshja was arrested yesterday on a fugitive warrant.

New York police say Qoshja robbed the Atlanta family on April 13. He allegedly entered a hotel elevator with them and rode to the 40th floor, where he drew a pistol and forced his way into the family's room. The robber handcuffed the parents and bound the daughter with duct tape before stealing cash, an emerald ring, two laptop computers and other items.

Police say the robber also took ATM cards and forced the parents to reveal their personal identification numbers so he could withdraw $700 from bank accounts.

The daughter freed herself from the duct tape after 30 minutes and alerted security officers at the hotel, which is located in the heart of the city's financial district.

They didn't lie to the guy? I guess he threatened to come back if they gave him the wrong #? :?

Didn't the criminal know that NYC hotels are off limits per GFL restrictions?

I just figured that NYC hotels are off limits for GFL holders just like everywhere else.

Pshaw! There's no off-limits places in GA! It's in the South!
