ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey man is heading to prison after admitting to following five women and robbing them at gunpoint in their Atlantic City hotel room.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office says 39-year-old Rahime Adams was sentenced to 30 years behind bars for the August 2014 robbery. The Newark man pleaded guilty to robbery and weapons offenses in the case.

Prosecutors say Adams followed five women from the Resorts Casino to their hotel room, forced his way inside and demanded money. Investigators say Adams told the victims he didn’t want to hurt them but he would if he had to.

After ordering the women to empty their purses, authorities say the man took $700 and fled the scene.
