Shreveport Police detectives are searching for a man who robbed a local hotel Friday morning.

Just before 6:00 AM on March 10, 2017, Shreveport Police were called to the Chateau Suites Hotel located in the 200 block of Lake Street on an armed robbery call.

When officers arrived at the business, they were told a man entered the lobby of the hotel, walked over to the front desk clerk, removed a firearm from his jacket, and demanded money. The clerk complied with the robber’s demands and handed over money from the register.

The bandit fled the business on foot traveling westbound of Lake Street, making off with an undisclosed amount of cash. The man was described as a light skinned, black male who stood approximately six feet tall with a medium build. The robber was also wearing a black and gold colored jacket, black pants, and a black hat.

Police are seeking leads in the investigation and are asking anyone with information to contact Crimestoppers at (318) 673-7373 or visit their website at www.lockemup.org.
