Polite robber hits hotel

January 6, 2011

It's not every day an armed robber says thank you. A clerk at the Extended Stay hotel near Interstate 465 and Michigan Road reported a robbery just before 10 p.m. Wednesday. She told police the robber came in, jumped through the window at the front desk, pointed a gun at her and demanded money. According to the police report, when she put cash into the suspect's bag the robber said "Alright, thanks," and then jumped back over the counter and fled. The suspect was dressed in black, with a black bandana over his nose and mouth.
