Two men who crashed through a third-floor window at the rear of the Holiday Motel Monday morning had forced their way into Room 33, displayed a handgun and demanded money from the occupants, Hagerstown City Police said.
The two jumped from the window of the 12 N. Prospect St. motel around 6:30 a.m. after a person in an adjacent room heard the disturbance and kicked open the locked door.
As the person was trying to get in the door, one of the two men broke out a window and both men jumped, police said.
One man landed in a pile of broken glass and was injured while the other man ran, witnesses said.
"I heard glass breaking and here he comes out the window," said Thelma Smith who was walking in Wareham Alley that runs east to west behind the motel.
