A clerk and a guest at a Rock Hill hotel were robbed at gunpoint by a masked suspect, police said.
Neither victim was injured in the incident around 12:15 a.m. Wednesday at the Courtyard by Marriott on River Run Court, according to a Rock Hill Police Department report.
The male clerk told officers that a masked suspect wearing a blue hoodie entered the hotel, pointed a handgun at the clerk and demanded cash from the register, the report states. The cash was handed over and the suspect demanded a second register be opened, officers said.
When the clerk could not open the second register, the suspect began yelling at the clerk, which drew a person who was in the process of checking into the hotel, police said.
