A hotel clerk was robbed at gunpoint Friday evening in west Redlands and the suspect got away before police arrived, according to a city spokesman.
Police were seeking info about the alleged gunman, who was described as a white male, 25 to 30 years old, 5 feet, 3 inches tall, weighing 130 to 140 pounds.
"He was unshaven with short brown hair and a tattoo on his neck," Redlands spokesman Carl Baker said in a statement distributed Monday afternoon. "He was last seen wearing a baseball cap with an Atlanta Braves 'A' logo, a faded black sweatshirt, baggy blue jeans and bright red athletic shoes."
The armed robbery was reported about 6:30 p.m. Aug. 16 at the Country Inn & Suites, 1650 Industrial Park Ave., Baker said. The suspect was in the hotel lobby several minutes before he approached the clerk, displaying a handgun and demanding money from the cash register. He left the hotel on foot. No vehicle was seen.
