Days Inn in Spokane robbed at gunpoint
A downtown Spokane motel was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday night by a man who initially asked for change before pulling a handgun, police said.
The robbery at Days Inn, 120 W. Third Ave., began when the suspect walked in for change and then left about 9 p.m. The man returned in a few minutes with a black handgun and white plastic bag.
He obtained an undisclosed amount of money from a woman clerk and fled on foot. The clerk was not injured.
Police described him as white, in his early 20s, 6-foot and 200 pounds with very short hair and acne scars on his face.
He was wearing a tan-colored and plaid-patterned sweatshirt with hood and tan cargo-style pants.
He was last seen running northbound, but was not located by police. However, evidence collected at the scene may help detectives identify the robber, police said.
