Newark Post - - Local News - By JOSH SHAN­NON jshan­non@ches­pub.com

A gun­man is on the loose af­ter rob­bing a Ne­wark ho­tel last week.

The man walked into the Red Roof Inn at 1119 S. Col­lege Ave. at ap­prox­i­mately 6:30 a.m. April 8 and de­manded money from em­ploy­ees.

Af­ter an em­ployee opened the cash reg­is­ter, the rob­ber jumped over the counter and grabbed an undis­closed amount of cash be­fore run­ning out of the ho­tel, said Cpl. James Spadola, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Po­lice De­part­ment.

The rob­ber is de­scribed as an ap- prox­i­mately 25-year-old black man with a thin build and be­tween 5 feet 7 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was armed with a black hand­gun.

Spadola said no sur­veil­lance photos are avail­able.
