LITTLE ROCK, AR - Seconds after a child walks down the hall at a Little Rock La Quinta inn, two men follow - holding the hotel security guard at gunpoint.
They make their way to the front desk, startling customers - and demand money.
One of the men even pushes his gun directly into the security guard's face.
According to hotel staff, the men ended up with $75.
The clerk shows them the empty cash drawer, and the men, faces covered in black bandanas, leave out the same back door they came in.
"As you can see in the video, one of them continued to assault the security guard by pushing the gun into his head, almost as if he was enjoying what he was doing," Lt. Terry Hastings of the Little Rock Police Department said.
Investigators think the men could be responsible for other robberies, too.
"These two individuals are violent, we want them off the street as quickly as possible and we hope that someone seeing this video will give us some names and point us in their direction," Lt. Hastings said.
As for the staff back at La Quinta Inn, they’re just glad no one was hurt.
Daroll Eskridge didn't work the night of the robbery, but he says now that he's gotten over the shock of seeing this footage, he and his co-workers are all thinking the same thing.
"You guys take a good look at them, if you know them, you know who to call,” Eskridge said.
