AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW) -- The search is on for three men in connection to an armed robbery at the American Hearth Inn in Aiken.

The victims said they were in their hotel room when they heard a knock on the door around 2 a.m. Saturday. One of the victims knew one of the men standing outside the room, so he says he opened the door.

According to the incident report, one of the three men pulled out a purple handgun and demanded money from the victims, forcing them to get naked and lie on the floor.

One of the victims had his money, car keys and wallet stolen, while the other had a key stolen.

One of the suspects, a black male in his 20s, is said to go by "Stone."
