COLUMBIA — Police are looking for a man who robbed the Ramada Inn on Conley Road early Sunday morning.
The man, wearing jeans and a green sweatshirt with the hood cinched around his face, entered the hotel and wrote a note demanding money, according to Columbia Police Department Public Information Officer Latisha Stroer. He made hand gestures, implying he had a weapon, but the clerk told police he did not see a weapon. He fled the hotel on foot with an undisclosed amount of money. No one was injured.
As he left on foot, a red Chevrolet Camaro with a black top was seen leaving the hotel parking lot, Stroer said. It had been parked in front of the hotel. It is unknown whether the vehicle's driver was a potential witness or a person involved in the robbery, she said.
The victim did not see much of the robber’s face but was able to describe him as a white male in his early 20s, 5 feet 5 inches tall and 150 pounds.
Anyone with information about the event is encouraged to contact the Columbia Police Department at 874-7652 or CrimeStoppers at 875-8477.
