Clerk Bound in Robbery

By  | 

Two masked men robbed the Astro Motel on South Frontage Road July 23 around 8:45 p.m.

The two black males, who were staying in a room at the location, allegedly summoned the manager to their room and then demanded he hand over the money from the register.

"The clerk was bound, as well as a tenant, at the hotel," said Lt. Lee Currie. "And approximately 30 minutes after the suspect left, a brother of the manager came to the hotel and found them."
