Kennewick police are hunting for three men who attacked a 52-year-old mother in her motel room Sunday night.

The victim was headed to Seattle to visit her daughter and was in a motel on the 300 block of Ely Street, police said.

Three men knocked on her door at 9:30 p.m. When she opened it, the men — some wearing hoodies and masks — pushed her to the floor.

They grabbed her iPad, cellphone and purse, officers said.

Surveillance video shows the men hung around in her motel room for four minutes before escaping in a black Hyundai coupe with black rims.

Police ask anyone with information about the robbery to call 509-628-0333, or they can call the Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers at 509-586-8477.

People who provide information to Crime Stoppers leading to an arrest can earn up to $1,000.
