CINCINNATI - The search is on for a suspect who robbed a Norwood hotel early Thursday morning.
A man robbed the Quality Inn, 4747 Montgomery Road at about 1:45 a.m. on Aug. 16. The armed suspect jumped behind the counter, took money and then fled the scene, according to authorities. The robbery took less than two minutes, officials added.
Officials say the suspect took a binder containing credit card information.
The K9 unit at the scene tracked the suspect north on Montgomery Road, but then lost him. Officials are still searching the area for the suspect, who they say was a black male wearing a red hoodie and a dark-colored cap at the time of the robbery (pictured above).
