Attempted Robbery

The victim was working the front desk of the Skyline Inn when a male approached her and asked to rent a room. Suddenly this male got upset for no apparent reason then left the office. Moments later the male came back with a gun. He demanded money and told the victim this was a robbery. The victim told the male she didn’t have any money in the front and she had to go in the back. The suspect then fled without receiving any money. The suspect is described as a white male adult wearing blue jeans, blue baseball cap, and grey long sleeve shirt with no pockets. He was clean shaven and had black hair.
