Around 8 p.m. Tuesday the Juneau Police Department responded to a 911 call reporting a robbery at the Travelodge Hotel.
According to a news release from JPD, a man walked into the hotel toward a clerk with his arm and hand extended under his sleeve, as if he had a handgun. The suspect then punched a man who attempted to intervene and threatened a female witness.
He physically assaulted a clerk behind the hotel counter before fleeing on foot with cash from the till.
Officers searched the area but were unable to find the suspect. He is described as being about 6 feet tall, 250 pounds and wearing all black. The suspect was wearing a ski mask at the time of the robbery.
If you have any information, please contact the Juneau Police Department at 586-0600. An investigation is ongoing.
