Salt Lake City police are searching for two men who they believe broke into a hotel room, then zip-tied and robbed two men inside the room.

Police were called to the Skyline Inn, 2475 E. 1700 South, Tuesday morning around 11 a.m. on a report of a robbery inside one of the rooms.

According to police, two men had gone into one of the hotel rooms and ziptied the two male occupants while they robbed the room of the occupants' personal possessions.

As of 12:15 p.m., the two suspects had not been caught, according to police, but they don't believe the crime was random. The hotel occupants told police they were "associates" of the suspects, and knew who they were.

One of the occupants received an eye injury during the course of the robbery, according to police, but no other injuries were reported.
