TAOS, N.M. (KRQE) – Police are looking for a group of armed robbers who targeted a guest outside a luxury hotel.

It happened outside the El Monte Sagrado on Monday night off Kit Carson Road in Taos. Two valets say they were near the hotel’s front door when they heard yelling nearby. They found one of their guests on the ground and three men running away.

The victim told police he was on the phone when the robbers demanded his phone and when he said no they started punching him. He described the suspects as 15 to 17 years old.

Their getaway car was an SUV with a neon light around the license plate.
