Police are searching for two men after a hotel employee was tied up and robbed.

Saskatoon police were called to the Super 8 on the 1400 block of 22nd Street West at around 6:40 a.m. CST Tuesday, according to a news release.

Officers found an employee who had locked himself in a room. He told police he had stumbled across two men who were armed with a knife and a BB gun in a common room. 

The men forced the employee onto a chair then taped him down, police said. The employee said the men stole his glasses, wallet, car keys and work keys. They went on to steal a computer from the front desk and employee's blue 2008 Nissan Altima.

Both men were wearing balaclavas. One man is described as six feet tall and was wearing a beige or black jacket with fur on the hood. The second suspect was roughly five feet seven inches tall and wore an oversized black jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Saskatoon Police.
