Around 11 p.m. Monday night, a white male entered into the lobby of the Garden Inn Suites in the 7300 block of East Kellogg.
Witnesses say the man was wearing a white sack over his head with holes cut out for his eyes and mouth. With an 8 to 10 inch hunting knife in hand, he jumped over the counter and ordered the clerk to open the cash drawer. The suspect grabbed all the money, ran out of the hotel, and got into a car parked on Orme Street.
The robber is described as a white male in his 20s. He was 6'3" with a thin build. He was wearing a long-sleeved purple shirt and blue jeans.
