Search continues for man who robbed Comfort Inn

SoVaNow.com / October 03, 2012
The Comfort Inn on Thompson Street in South Hill was the scene of an armed robbery Tuesday night, Sept. 25.

Lt. Bernie Puryear of the South Hill Police Department said a lone black male entered the hotel lobby around 11:05 p.m. brandishing a small caliber weapon as he approached the front desk. Before making his escape with an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect hit the clerk on duty in the head with his gun.

Police said she refused medical treatment, even though the altercation left her with a large lump on her head.

The clerk gave police a description of the man: he is believed to be between 5’7” and 5’8” and about 175 pounds. At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a dark grey shirt, shorts, and a red ball cap.

She did not know how or in which direction the robber fled the scene.

Puryear said police are continuing to search for the suspect and are circulating surveillance videos to area law enforcement agencies.

He cautioned that the man is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call the South Hill Police at 434-447-3104
