Deputies: Woman robbed in room at Orlando hotel

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – Deputies in Florida say a woman was robbed in her hotel room in Orlando’s tourist area.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that the 25-year-old woman called for help Wednesday night from her room at the Comfort Inn and Suites. She wasn’t injured.

The hotel is near the Wyndham Orlando Resort where a Turkish tourist was fatally shot last week during an attempted robbery while on his honeymoon.

The Orlando Sentinel reports sheriff’s officials tried to reassure visitors that the International Drive tourist district “is one of the safest areas in our community.”

It’s been a summer of tragedies in Orlando with the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the death of a toddler by an alligator and the slaying of a former singer from “The Voice.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
