Three women were robbed at two hotels in Newark over the weekend.
Delaware State Police say the robberies happened between 1 and 1:45 Saturday morning. The first robbery happened at the Comfort Inn on Concord Lane, followed by another robbery at the Econo Lodge on McIntosh Plaza. In both robberies, troopers say the man and the women arranged their meetings through social media. When the man arrived at their hotel rooms, that’s when troopers say he shoed a gun and demanded money. He fled from both hotels with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The robber is described as a white man, between 20 and 25 years old, 5-foot-9 and between 200 and 220 pounds with a stocky build. Anyone with information is asked to call State Police Troop 2 at (302) 834-2630, extension 6, or Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333.
