    Two masked men, one armed with a gun, walked into an area hotel and held up the woman behind the counter early this morning.

    The robbery took place around 3 a.m. inside the Residence Inn along Hurffville Road (Highway 41) in Deptford, N.J.

    According to police sources, the overnight clerk told investigators that men wearing black ski masks and blue hoodies walked in and demanded money. The woman behind the counter handed over about $400 before the men fled on foot to a waiting car.

    No one was hurt.

    When NBC10 cameras got to the scene, investigators could be seen scouring the parking lot with flashlights, looking for clues in the case.

    No motive was given and there was no forced entry, according to police.
