Puerto Rico authorities have charged five suspects in the robbery of a New York lawyer inside his room at a Ritz-Carlton hotel.

Police say two of the suspects are women whom the victim invited to his room at the luxury hotel in the Isla Verde tourist district outside San Juan.

Police Capt. Samuel Luciano says the women called three men who helped carry out the robbery.

All five are charged with robbery and unlawful imprisonment.

Luciano said Tuesday that a 17-year-old girl also in the room has not been charged.

Authorities say the victim, Robert J. Anello, was threatened with a knife and tied up with lamp cords and a necktie before dawn Monday. His credit cards, two cell phones and $800 in cash were stolen.
