South College Avenue hotel robbed at gunpoint
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.
