DENVER, Colo. - A man was attacked and robbed inside a motel room in Denver, then forced to use his ATM card to withdraw cash.

It happened Monday at a motel on E. Colfax Ave., near the border with Aurora, according to the Denver Police Department.

Aurora police officers happened to see three men acting suspiciously at the ATM and a few blocks east of the motel.

"The two suspicious parties were nervously looking in all directions, while the third seemed to be in distress," the Denver Police Department posted on its Facebook page.

Aurora police officers stopped the men and called Denver police to investigate.
