WARSAW Two people are under arrest for beating and robbing a man at a hotel on Christmas Eve.

Ritchie Hernandez, Jr. and Jason Waikel are accused in the crime, which happened at a Comfort Inn in Warsaw.

Stacey Page Online reports the victim had just won $5,000 dollars in a fantasy football game, but all he had on him at the time was six dollars and a debit card.

The victim told police the men returned at one point, and made him pull up his shirt. He says they told him they were looking for a wire because they thought he was working for police. He claims they told him that was why they beat him.
