Pair of bandits hit hotel off Lima Road

Two men armed with handguns robbed the front desk of a hotel Saturday night in north Fort Wayne, city police said.

One of the men jumped the counter at the Country Inn & Suites, 5926 Cross Creek Blvd., and pointed a chrome-colored revolver at the clerk, demanding money, said officer Jason Anthony, a police spokesman.

The clerk, a woman, opened a drawer, and the men took an undisclosed amount of cash, along with a phone she had.

The men fled through the front door and went west, Anthony said.

Officers were dispatched to the hotel, near West Washington Center and Lima roads, about 9:10 p.m. A police dog led officers to a parking lot west of the hotel but no farther.

“It appears they had a car waiting there,” Anthony said.

Investigators are trying to obtain surveillance video of the robbery, he said.

The robbers were each wearing a black-and-white bandanna, black hooded sweatshirt and dark pants. The robber who hopped over the counter was a white man in his mid-20s.

The other man was black, also in his mid-20s.
