A 30-year-old woman has been arrested and Windsor police are looking for two men in relation to an alleged robbery at a motel on Howard Avenue.
Police were called to convenience store in the 2700 block of Howard Avenue around 12:15 a.m. Thursday. A 54-year-old man met officers at the store and told them he was the victim of a robbery at a motel in the 2800 block of Howard Avenue.

The victim says the men forced him into to bathroom and took cash and a debit card from his wallet. Police say he was then taken by cab to the motel on Howard Avenue.
