On Wednesday, at around 10:45am, “a man with a firearm” entered La Quinta Inn & Suites on W. 71st St., between Columbus Avenue and Central Park West, and “passed a note to the clerk demanding money,” a police spokesperson told West Side Rag. The clerk gave the man $100, and the man fled.
Police offered no other details, except that the suspect was wearing a navy-blue hoodie, dark pants, and a mask, and that he is still “at large.”
We’ll update when more is known.
