Police were searching for a suspect Sunday evening in an armed robbery at the Super 8 motel on South Saunders Street.
Raleigh police say someone broke into a motel room and robbed its resident at gunpoint around 3:30 p.m. Sunday. About 30 minutes later, a pickup truck that police say might be linked to the robbery was seen leaving the area and was later found abandoned on Seagram Court, about two miles away.
Police are looking for a suspect they described as a black male “with a stocky build who stands about 5 feet 6 inches tall,” who has “some facial hair” and was wearing a plaid shirt and a brown or tan jacket.
Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect is asked to call 911.
