A violent robbery at a Goodlettsville, Tennessee motel left workers shocked and cops stumped.
The brazen robbery happened Sept. 25 at 11:33 p.m. at the Comfort Inn and Suites on 621 Rivergate Parkway.

They pushed the 37-year-old clerk to the back office, where she got the keys to the cash drawer.
They then forced her at gunpoint to hand over the cash drawer.
By this time, a third man entered the building with a sledge hammer.
He can be heard in the video banging on the wall as he tried to get at the motel safe. At one point the clerk was on her stomach, face down behind the counter.
Authorities said she tried to call for help on her cell phone, but the buttons made a noise and the gunmen jumped on her and snatched the phone.
When a motel guest walked into the lobby, the gunman saw him and told him to get down. The guest ran and the gunman shouted for the other suspects to run.
The three robbers then took off in their SUV.
The clerk is visibly shaken in the surveillance video as she called 911.
Victim: “Like three or four black guys. They had me on the ground.”
911: “Did they have any weapons?”
911: “Are you injured?”
911: “Try to calm down and catch your breath ok? I’ve got the police coming to you. Try to catch your breath, ok? Are you hurt?”
911: “Ok, what did they take?”
Victim: “They took the money out of my cash drawer, and they were in the office beating on the safe. Don’t know if they got in there. I think someone came around and scared them. They had me down on the ground.”
911: “And they did have you on the ground?”
According to police, the SUV was stolen and later found in Goodlettsville.
