Lufkin Hotel Robbed at Knife Point

Police officers are looking for the man who robbed a Lufkin motel early Thursday morning. The suspect walked into the Texas Inn & Suites on Highway 59 South just before 2:00 a.m. Thursday. He pointed a knife at the front desk clerk and demanded money.

The clerk did not have a key to unlock the cash, so the suspect took off on foot.

Authorities are investigating if Thursday's crime is connected to a recent robbery of the Comfort Suites, also on Highway 59.

The suspect was wearing a yellow shirt and orange hat. He stands about 5'9". If you have any information on this crime, call Lufkin Crimestoppers at 639-TIPS.
