What police thought was a possible abduction at a Gwinnett County hotel was actually an elaborate attempt to rob a man.

The incident happened around 2 a.m. at the Crossland Economy Studios on Jimmy Carter Boulevard in Norcross.

Police tell CBS46 News that an armed man, later identified as 30 year-old Timothy Wingfield, went to the hotel and forced a woman into a stolen vehicle. 

Another man was also inside the hotel room when the woman, later identified as Christina Day, was allegedly abducted. After a lengthy investigation, it was determined that the abduction was actually an attempt to rob the man in question. Police say Wingfield and Day know each other.

Day is described as a black female with a medium-heavy build and is believed to be in her mid to late 20's. She has thick dreadlock-style hair and was last seen wearing dark jeans, a bright green dress that was tucked into her pants and a light jean jacket.

Wingfield is described as a black male about 5'8" tall with a medium build. 

Anyone with information on the case is urged to contact Gwinnett County Police at 770-513-5700.
