Newark Post - - POLICE BLOTTER - By JOSH SHAN­NON jshan­non@ches­pub.com

Po­lice are search­ing for a gun­man who at­tempted to rob a mo­tel in Ne­wark late Tues­day night.

The in­ci­dent hap­pened at 10:25 p.m. at the Red Roof Inn, lo­cated at 1119 S. Col­lege Ave., ac­cord­ing to Sgt. Ger­ald Bryda, a spokesman for the Ne­wark Po­lice Depart­ment.

The man en­tered the lobby of the mo­tel, pointed a hand­gun at two em­ploy­ees and de­manded money, Bryda said. He ul­ti­mately fled empty-handed to­ward the back of the mo­tel prop­erty.

The sus­pect was de­scribed as a 5-foot-5 man be­tween 180 and 210 pounds. He was wear­ing a dark hooded sweat­shirt, light-col­ored pants, sun­glasses and a mask.

No sur­veil­lance footage was re­leased.
