Robbery at Anne Arundel County Hotel

Anne Arundel County Police Investigating Hotel Robbery

Anne Arundel County police were called to the Garden Inn Hotel, in Laurel, at approximately 1 a.m. on Tuesday, June 18, in response to an alleged robbery, reported the Maryland Gazette. Police say that the victim reported that he was talking with a friend on the second floor of the hotel, located in the 3400 block of Route 198, when a black male in his late 20’s approached him, flashed a knife, and asked for money.

When the robbery victim told the assailant that he had no money, the suspect searched him and took his wallet, fleeing on foot. Police officers brought in a K-9 unit and searched the area, but could not locate the robbery suspect. Police report that the perpetrator was approximately 6’0” tall, clean shaven with a stocky build, and was wearing a black t-shirt, black pants and a black stocking cap.
