You can’t make this up… It’s 2016 and already the foolishness has began. Two naked prostitutes were robbed of nearly $4,000 by 2 gunmen at a Buckhead hotel.
The incident happened on Saturday at the Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel and Conference Center across the street from Atlanta’s upscale Lenox Square Mall.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the two hookers thought they were meeting a client at the hotel.
The man entered the room and the women discussed prices with him before another man burst into the room 10 minutes later with gun drawn.
One woman said she was naked and the second was forced to take off her clothes, police said. The two men took $3,000 from one woman and $640 from the other before leaving the room. The women ran after the suspects, but stopped when the men ran down the stairs, Jones said.
A hotel guest in another room called 911 after seeing the naked women running down the hall after the men, according to police. Officers were called to the hotel shortly before 10 a.m.
Surveillance video from Lenox Square Mall showed the two men running into a parking garage, but the quality was not good enough for officers to identify the men, police said. Hotel employees were also reviewing surveillance footage.
The women gave officers possible phone numbers for the suspects, but only a minimal description of the two was provided. One man was wearing all black, including a black scarf, with glasses, and the other was wearing a red shirt with grey pants, according to police.
Police ask anyone with information about the robbery to call Crime Stoppers at (404) 577-8477. You can remain anonymous.

We live in a very sick world. A Florida man was charged with murder after he admitted that he disemboweled his girlfriend because blurted out her ex-husband’s name while they were having sex.
Sunrise police responded to a 911 from Fidel Lopez at around 3:39 a.m. on Sunday and found his girlfriend Maria Nemeth’s naked body on the floor, the Sun Sentinel reported.
An arrest report said that blood and tissue were found scattered throughout the couple’s apartment, and blood was smeared on the walls. The bathroom door had been ripped off the hinges. Police also found a bottle of tequila and cut limes in the kitchen.
Neighbors told officers that loud noise could be heard coming from the home for several hours.
During initial questioning, Lopez claimed that the two were having rough sex when Nemeth went into the bathroom, vomited and then died.
Lopez later admitted that he had become a “monster” when Nemeth twice uttered her ex-husband’s name during sex. He said that he had inserted a beer bottle and a curling iron in Nemeth’s vagina and anus. Lopez suggested that she had been too intoxicate to resist, according to WFOR.
He said that he then inserted both fists, before putting his arm in her up the elbow and ripping out intestinal matter. Lopez told authorities that he had a cigarette after disemboweling Nemeth, and after he finished it she had stopped breathing.
Sunrise police arrested Lopez on charges of first-degree murder.
