Missoula Police Still Searching for Weekend Motel Robbers
Missoula Police are still searching for suspects from a weekend robbery. Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh explains.
"It was first reported Saturday morning, early, about 3:23 a.m. at a motel in the 800 block of E. Broadway," said Missoula Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh. "A clerk was at the front desk when two males came in and assaulted him and left with cash that was in the office."
Welsh says the clerk exchanged blows with the robbers and was eventually forced to the ground and pinned there while the two intruders stole cash.
"Suspect number one is described as a male, 5'8" tall, weighing about 180 pounds and wearing a black hoodie," Welsh said. "Suspect number two is described as being a little taller, about 5'10" around 180 pounds and he was wearing a grey hoodie. Both suspects had their hoods up over their heads and were doing their best to conceal their faces."
Welsh says police are looking for surveillance footage of the suspects and says that the two robbers left the motel on foot.
