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.
