Downtown hotel robbed at gunpoint

A Spokane man robbed a downtown hotel at gunpoint recently, police say.

Alexander Feliciano, 44, is accused of stealing a $100 bill, along with a stack of $1 and $5 bills, after threatening a clerk at the Days Inn hotel, 120 W. 3rd Ave., with a gun about 6:15 p.m. on Saturday, according to police.

The robber first asked about the price of a room before walking around the counter while holding the gun in both hands and saying "Why don't you just show me where the money is at? Get on the ground so you don't get hurt," according to a probable cause affidavit.

The robber fled eastbound on 3rd Avenue in a silver Pontiac Vibe, which police spotted a short while later. They arrested Feliciano and recovered $246.

The suspect was booked on a first-degree robbery charge at the Spokane County Jail, where he remains on $40,000 bond.
