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.”
