Masked gunman robs Motel 6 in Pittsfield Township

By Lee Higgins

Motel 6 in Pittsfield Township was robbed at gunpoint Sunday night by a masked man who may have left in a U-Haul truck, township police said.

At 10:50 p.m., the man entered the lobby of the motel at 3764 South State Street and pulled out a black revolver, demanding money from a 26-year-old female clerk, according to a police news release.

Police said the clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of cash and the man left the area.

He may have gotten into a U-Haul truck that was being driven by another person, the release said. Police said the truck was seen traveling south on South State Street. No one was injured in the robbery.

The man was described as black, 5 feet, 6 inches tall, 20 to 25 years of age, with a thin build. He was wearing a dark ski mask and a dark blue or black varsity-style jacket with white stripes around the sleeves, police said.

Anyone with information can call the police department's tip line at (734) 822-4958.

ok, "...may have left in a U-Haul truck" might be a better getaway vehicle than a mass transit bus. what kind of ca$h are you expecting to get robbing a motel? i suspect MOST, if not ALL people pay w/credit card. glad no one was hurt. this one has fail written all over it.

Normally, you'd be right, but remember, this was a Motel 6. They take cash, credit, barter, bales of bison hide, herds of sheep, 8900 year old pieces of wood ...

This is the same exact suspect description of the Face Puncher, Crotch Grabber, and Mugging Panhandler attacks all in the last couple weeks.

I heard this robbery go down, glad the clerk was not hurt. Hope the u-hall can be tracked down if rented. If it was stolen, that is another story.

I wonder if they stole the U-Haul too, it's across the street.

Sounds like one last score before leaving town. At least they'll have gas money for the trip.
