An aggravated robbery was reported to have occurred after 10 p.m. Saturday in a motel room in the 1500 block of East Shannon Road. No one was injured, but a weapon was reportedly displayed during the robbery, according to police reports.
A 69-year-old man staying at the motel reportedly had money stolen from him in his room. According to Suphur Springs police reports, a man entered the 69-year-old’s motel room through an open door.
When, the motel guest rose off his bed and walked toward a table where the intruder was standing, the intruder allegedly displayed a handgun and demanded money. The 69-year-old reportedly gave him the cash he had and the intruder demanded more. The older man indicated he didn’t have any more money and the man finally left, according to police reports.
The suspect was described as a skinny white male, possibly Hispanic, with stubble, possibly a mustache. The suspect was reported to have been wearing a dark colored shirt with stripes, “like plaid,” and dark colored pants, possibly jeans.
Officers searched the area at the time of the alleged robbery, but did not immediately locate anyone fitting that description. As of Monday morning, no one had been arrested for robbery in connection with the case, according to police.
