NORCROSS -- Norcross police seek the public's help in identifying two men who beat and robbed a hotel patron this past weekend.

The attack occurred Saturday night at a Days Inn in the 5300 block of Peachtree Industrial Boulevard in Norcross, where police were able to secure clear surveillance photos of one suspect.

The 46-year-old male victim told police one man was armed with a handgun. The men "severely" beat the victim in the parking lot before taking his money and other valuables and fleeing in a light-colored, four-door compact car, said Norcross police Det. Bill Grogan.

The victim declined medical transport, police said.

Police urge anyone with information to call the Norcross Police Department tip line at 770-448-6457.
