Southwest Detectives are searching for a suspect who they say robbed a 20-year-old woman at a Wynnefield Heights hotel.

Police say on Friday, April 11th at 5:00 p.m., the victim was staying at a hotel room inside the Crowne Plaza Hotel located at 4010 City Avenue when an unknown male knocked on the door.

When the woman answered the door the suspect allegedly entered the room, and pulled a handgun forcing the woman on the floor demanding money, police say.

According to authorities, after giving the suspect an undetermined amount of money the suspect tied the woman’s hands behind her back then fled the hotel in an unknown direction.

The suspect in the April 5th incident was wearing a black hooded jacket, black and white shorts, and a bandana on his head, according to police.
