Wolf Road hotel robbed again, suspects sought
COLONIE Police are looking for two men who robbed a Colonie hotel last night, police said.
The incident happened just before midnight Tuesday evening, police said, when the men entered the lobby of the Best Western Hotel, 200 Wolf Road, and forced two employees to the floor. One suspect then made one of the employees open the cash drawer and hand over the cash. The suspects made off with about $440 in cash, police said.
They were last seen fleeing on foot in the parking lot of the hotel.
The hotel was also robbed Jan. 31 and police believe the robberies are related.
The suspects are described as black men, in their mid 20s to early 30s. The men were between 5-foot-8-inches and 5-foot-10-inches tall and weighing between 150 and 170 pounds, though one of the men may have been a little taller and heavier. The taller man wore a blue or grey hooded sweatshirt and may have had sunglasses. The shorter one had a grey hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, sunglasses and sneakers.
