Two Red Bluff men and a juvenile were arrested Friday night, accused of robbing two guests at the Chico Holiday Inn.
Police arrested 21-year-old Dylan Hoffman-Neff of Red Bluff, 18-year-old Matthew Servian of Red Bluff, and a third juvenile suspect whose name was not released due to their age.
The incident happened at 6:23 p.m. at the hotel on Manzanita Avenue, just off Mangrove Avenue in Chico. The two female victims said the three suspects knocked on their hotel door. When the women opened the door, the suspects forced their way inside.
The suspects showed a handgun and demanded money and cell phones. The victims gave them their phones and the suspects ran away.
Just minutes later, police noticed three subjects matching the suspects' description just across Highway 99 near the Best Western Heritage Inn. They were detained, and an officer recovered a handgun from one of the subjects.
Police said during an infield lineup, the three were positively identified as the suspects who had committed the robbery at the Holiday Inn.
Hoffman-Neff and Servian were booked into the Butte County Jail. The juvenile was booked into Juvenile Hall.
