CONYERS -- The desk clerk at the Holiday Inn Express on Green Street was robbed at gunpoint shortly before midnight Sunday.
The Conyers Police Department is looking for a black male and a black female who held up the female clerk and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
According to the incident report, the clerk told police that the man and woman came into the lobby where the man approached the front desk and asked for a manager. When the clerk advised that there was no manager on duty, the male suspect brandished a black handgun and ordered the clerk to give her all the money and not to do anything stupid.
The clerk handed the paper money to the suspect, who then handed it to the woman who accompanied him. The woman exited through the front doors and the male suspect waited in the lobby a few minutes with the gun held close to his side. When another man entered the lobby, the suspect headed out the front doors.
The other man went outside, returned to the lobby and the clerk told him she had been robbed. The man ran to the doors on the west side of the building and saw a black, newer model Chrysler Town and Country van leaving the parking lot. The witness said the van turned left on Dogwood drive and headed east toward Ga. Highway 138.
Video surveillance tape from the lobby showed the female suspect looked shocked when the clerk opened the cash drawer at gunpoint, covering her mouth with her hands and looking around the lobby, according to the incident report.
The male suspect is described as being between 30 and 40 years of age, dark-skinned, about 5 feet, 5 inches tall, with a slim build. He was wearing a black hat, dark sunglasses, a red shirt and dark-colored shorts.
The female suspect is described as about 5 feet, 7 inches tall, wearing a red shirt and dark jeans, with her hair pulled back in a pony tail.
