Two men wearing nun masks charged with robbery of man who was lured to hotel

HOUSTON,Texas (KTRK) -- Houston robbery detectives have charged four people, including two teenage girls, that they say robbed a man they lured to a hotel. The alleged victim tells ABC13, he wants them to pay.

"It was quick and I left scared," said Jonathan Solis.

Police say Solis was lured to the America's Inn on Southwest Freeway on Oct. 14 by 17-year-old Zaida Rebollar. She had been talking to him on social media for two weeks.

"She sent me a message that she wanted to see me. I left to go to the hotel and then I messaged her," Solis told Eyewitness News.

Rebollar was in a room with Danea Diaz, 18, police say.

Video surveillance captured what happened next.

Video shows two men who police identified as Roberto Hernandez and Pedro Liberato, standing in the hall nearby. They then put on nun masks and continued to stand in the hall, waiting for their moment to strike.

"They hit me in the back of the neck. I hit the bathtub," said Solis.

Solis said the two guys rushed in, assaulted him and then stole his jewelry, phone and cash. They hit him again and then put a gun to his head.

A viewer helped police identify the foursome. They are now charged with aggravated robbery and police are looking for them. They are either current or former students at Galena Park's North Shore High School.

"These are such vicious, violent crimes, for such petty gain. They had some money, his smart phone, things of that nature. I don't understand why these young people are throwing their lives away on these serious felonies," said Sgt. Tony Mora of the HPD Robbery Division.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the four suspects is urged to contact HPD or Crime Stoppers.
